The new United Club lounge at San Diego International Airport opened this morning. Itâ€™s modeled after Unitedâ€™s first new post-merger location that debuted at Chicago Oâ€™Hare airport last year, and it looks fantastic based on the pictures from the press release.
The 5,842-square-foot United Club in San Diego is located in Terminal 2 West on the Mezzanine level, directly above the airport’s new Sunset Cove, an atrium that offers panoramic views of the airfield. The United Club features spectacular views of the Point Loma seaside community, balcony lounge seating within the atrium and a centrally located buffet and bar.
Check out the size of the globe logo on the entry door and accompanying glass:
The seating area looks comfy with plenty of power ports and #AvGeek views of the terminal and apron. And is that a vintage Stratocruiser graphic in the second pic below?
The opening coincides with United’s consolidation of terminal facilities in the newly expanded Terminal 2 West at Lindbergh Field, offering a new ticketing lobby, baggage claim area and improved shopping and dining options.
Several United Clubs have opened or been refreshed at this point, including the aforementioned Chicago location, the Denver West club and a new Seattle lounge in Concourse A. In all, United is said to be spending $50 million this year to renovate many of its existing 49 locations.
