United Airlines Temporarily Closes Philadelphia Club

No, this isn’t an April Fools joke. In case you missed it from UA Insider on MilePoint or Flyertalk, United announced on Saturday that the United Club in Philadelphia is closed temporarily:

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to give you a heads up that we have temporarily closed the United Club at PHL, due to ventilation issues possibly associated with an airport roofing project that is underway in the vicinity. Although we’re still working to identify the precise cause(s) and mitigate appropriately, for now we’re erring on the side of safety and caution for both our co-workers and customers.

As you probably know, United Club members and eligible Star Alliance Gold members (i.e. traveling on int’l itineraries) may use the US Airways Club(s) at PHL as an alternative to the United Club while we work to re-open.

So far there’s no ETA for it reopening. And the closure has nothing to do with the restrooms in the club having been out-of-service for some time, as Matthew previously reported. But UA Insider noted yesterday that they should reopen by May 1, 2013.
