New United Club lounge opens in New Orleans International Airport
United Airlines recently expressed renewed proactivity to bolster its United Club lounge network. It announced a one-of-a-kind lounge coming to Newark Liberty International Airport by 2021, and brand-new lounges in Washington, D.C., Phoenix and Honolulu on the way.
On February 29, 2020, United yanked the shroud from its first new United Club lounge of 2020. It’s a sizable 6,000-square-foot space that lives beside Gate C7 in the brand-new terminal of the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport (MSY).

As expected, the 95-seat lounge offers high-speed Wi-Fi and scads of power outlets. You’ll also find region-influenced cuisine such as “muffuletta and pimento cheese sliders, gumbo and rice, Cajun pepper dip and Creole egg salad,” as well as complimentary alcohol such as Abita Amber beer and Southern Comfort, beer, wine and a variety of cocktails, per United.
New lounges like this slowly continue to increase the value of credit cards like the United Business Card. It comes with a sign-up bonus of 75,000 bonus miles after you spend $5,000 on purchases in the first three months of account opening. Plus, earn an additional 75,000 bonus miles after you spend $20,000 total in the first six months from account opening.. But the card also comes with a number of ongoing benefits, such as two annual United Club one-time passes. More lounges mean more opportunities to use your day passes!
