Earlier this year, United introduced us to its new business-class product, Polaris. In an exciting move for the carrier with CEO Oscar Munoz back at the helm, the new seats are definitely something to look forward to for United flyers. Configured in a 1-2-1 layout, the new product offers a lie-flat bed, pajamas, an updated amenity kit and much more. And now, United wants its Premier passengers to get a glimpse of Polaris before the official launch.

United is allowing MileagePlus Premier members the chance to get a sneak peek at the new business-class seats at one of four locations. The four locations and dates are as follows:

  • Brown Palace Hotel, Denver, Colorado — August 11 from 7:30pm to 11:00pm
  • Newark Airport — August 18 from 6:00pm to 11:00pm
  • Dulles International Airport — August 31 from 6:00pm to 11:00pm
  • Houston George Bush Intercontinental Airport — September 7 from 6:00pm to 11:00pm

Each of the packages is complimentary and comes with two tickets, so you can bring a guest. These tickets are available now, but they probably won’t last long. If you’re at all interested in going, act fast. If you select the city you’re interested in going to, you can see how many (or few) are left. As of this writing, Denver had the fewest remaining (eight).

To get your two tickets, go to United’s MileagePlus website and select the date you’re interested in attending. You’ll also be served food and beverage inspired by The Trotter Project and United Polaris. If you’re attending one of the events at an airport, you do not need to have a flight scheduled in order to attend.

Are you going to see United’s new Polaris cabin?
