United recently opened into a lounge in San Francisco just last month, which makes it the newest Polaris lounge.
With the rathered slow rollout of it's Polaris product, many travelers had low expectations of future lounges being rolled out on time. To put into perspective, travelers waited a full year after the opening of the Polaris lounge in O'hare before the second lounge in San Francisco opened.
United recently promised to commit more to the Polaris rollout by adding one Polaris-equipped aircraft into their fleet every ten days. In addition, the push to open more Polaris lounges this year certainly looks like a promising effort to get the Polaris product on the track.
Today, United hosted a Media Preview day to give us an inside look at the lounge before it opens the public next week.
