      United Polaris Business Class Transformation


      United Polaris | Business Class

      United are proud to introduce United Polaris℠ business class, a completely redesigned international premium cabin travel experience offering elevated comfort and service from lounge to landing. It offers exclusive chef-designed on board dining options, luxury amenities including bedding from Saks Fifth Avenue, premium products from Soho House’s Cowshed Spa and more. The United Polaris experience brings a new level of quality to premium cabin travel for a restful night’s sleep in the sky.

      United began to introduce United Polaris on 1st Dec 2016, with the new in-flight food and beverage experience, new custom bedding from Saks Fifth Avenue, new amenity kits and the new United Polaris lounge in Chicago.



      In a first-of-its-kind partnership, United has worked with luxury goods department store Saks Fifth Avenue to create custom bedding designed to provide the best sleep in the sky. As temperature is crucial to sleeping soundly, United gives you the choice of two different blankets — a quilted duvet and a lighter throw blanket — for the perfect amount of warmth. Mattress cushions are also available upon request. If you tend to warm up when you sleep, you can even ask for a cooling gel memory foam pillow.



      United are proud to offer United Polaris customers a new chef-designed, multi-course in-flight dining experience. In collaboration with chefs from The Trotter Project, a non-profit organisation committed to mentoring and internship programs for youth interested in the culinary arts, United executive chefs created a menu that features fresh, seasonal ingredients and bold flavours from around the world.


      The dishes will rotate every three months, so you'll continue to have new dishes to experience on board. If you're eager to get as many hours of rest as possible, you can choose to enjoy a seated meal in the United Polaris lounge before your flight so you can go right to sleep in the air.

      If you'd prefer to eat in flight but don't want to wait for each course, you can opt for the Express Dining service and receive a single tray with your full meal all at once, at the time of your choosing.

      United Polaris also features United’s new signature beverage service. On morning flights, choose a sweet and bubbly Mimosa, or create your own savoury and spicy Tito's® Vodka Bloody Mary. On afternoon and evening flights, enjoy a hand-crafted customised wine flight.

      United Polaris lounge

      United Polaris lounge space is an oasis of thoughtful design and furnishings reserved for international premium cabin customers.

      United will open an exclusive portfolio of United Polaris business class lounges in nine locations around the world – the only lounge of its kind offered by a U.S. airline to business class customers – that will feature custom-designed chairs, private daybeds, spa-like showers and chef-inspired hot meals served in a boutique restaurant setting so customers can refresh and dine before boarding their planes. Premium sparkling wines and spirits, refreshing snacks and bottled water will also be offered. 

      The first new United Polaris lounge opened at Chicago O'Hare International Airport on Dec. 1, 2016. Lounges in eight other locations – Los Angeles, San Francisco, Houston, New York/Newark, Washington Dulles, Tokyo Narita, Hong Kong and London Heathrow – will follow.


      The United Polaris Lounge features abundant seating and plenty of access to power. Private seating stations offer a quiet place to relax or be productive. They feature pull-out desks, integrated AC and USB power, and table-mounted lamps. Find the perfect spot to make use of complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi, take a conference call, enjoy a snack before your flight, or relax in custom rest pods.

      Sit back and put your feet up, rest your eyes and let the relaxation set in. Comfortable chaises outfitted with a blanket and pillow are tucked away from the lounge. Offering soft lighting and gentle white noise to add just the right ambience, these cosy spaces let you block out the world.

      Personalise your dining experience with enhanced pre-departure dining and a variety of à la carte offerings. You can choose to have a seat and enjoy a full multi-course meal in the lounge, so you can get right to sleep on board. Or select from a large buffet of chef-created small plates.

      United Polaris travel features, including aircraft and airport configuration, may not be available in all markets and/or flights.
