The United Polaris lounge embodies the entire focus of the United Polaris experience: providing long-haul travelers the opportunity for better sleep in the sky. On average, United Airlines plans to add one aircraft with United Polaris seating every 10 days through 2020. Beginning July 1, a cooling gel pillow will be provided on every seat. In addition, United now offers customers a pre-arrival dessert. On flights departing the U.S., enjoy a white chocolate cranberry cookie from Christie Cookie Co.®, in Nashville, Tennessee.

The United Polaris lounge at Newark Liberty International (EWR) opened this month, boasting distinct local flair throughout that embodies the spirit of the New York metropolitan area. Additional United Polaris lounges are scheduled to open in 2018 at Houston Intercontinental (IAH) this summer and Los Angeles International (LAX) in the fall.
