The Newest United Airlines Lounge Might Be More Fun Than Your Destination

The next time you find yourself stuck at Los Angeles International Airport on a long layover, head straight to United Airline’s newest Polaris Lounge. This new lounge is packed with so many luxuries and comforts that you won’t want to board your next flight.

The lounge is 12,000 square feet of cool. There are 140 comfy seats to choose from, along with 272 power outlets and 120 USB ports for all your charging needs. The lounge also offers private workspaces with large dining tables, privacy dividers, and a lamp.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!

Of course, the best part of lounges is usually the food. This one offers a self-service buffet stuffed with gourmet grub and a California-themed à la carte menu.

The Polaris Lounge at LAX is the fifth of its kind to open in the U.S. Other lounge locations include Chicago O’Hare International Airport, George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, Newark Liberty International Airport, and San Francisco International Airport.

With all that at your fingertips, shuffling onto a cramped airplane cabin doesn’t sound very tempting. The perks are quite a convincing reason to fly United when you’re traveling long-distance.
