Welcome to the future of flying with United Airlines’ all-new United Polaris business class. Beginning December 1st, frequent flyers can enjoy the widely anticipated debut of United Polaris, the airline’s most significant transformation in more than a decade. Featuring an elevated inflight food and beverage experience, tranquil custom bedding from Saks Fifth Avenue, exclusive amenity kits with products from Soho House & Co’s Cowshed Spa, a reimagined, sleep-enhancing experience for intercontinental travelers and the opening of the first of nine United Polaris lounges, United Polaris is destined to be the next ground-breaking transformation in international travel.
Before take off, travelers can enjoy an exclusive portfolio of United Polaris business class lounges in nine locations around the world featuring private daybeds, spa-like showers, bespoke art installations by artist Wolfgang Buttress, a modern bar area offering a rotating menu of local and imported beers, plus a wide selection of highly rated wines and premium spirits, and chef-inspired hot meals served in a boutique restaurant setting so customers can refresh and dine before departure.
Upon boarding their flight, each United Polaris customer will be welcomed with a pre-departure beverage of his or her choice and gourmet chocolate. On morning flights, passengers can choose a sweet and bubbly Mimosa or create their own savory and spicy Bloody Mary. On afternoon and evening flights, passengers can create their own wine tasting menu, with a customized wine flight with the highest-quality options curated exclusively by United’s Master Sommelier.
While in the air, customers will enjoy regionally influenced in-flight menus updated seasonally, developed in partnership with The Trotter Project and its critically recognized chefs, including Chicago’s Chef Bill Kim and London’s Chef Jesse Dunford Wood. The United Polaris redesigned meal service allows passengers to customize their meal to allow for as much sleep as is desired–from a multi-course inflight dining experience, with each element presented in its proper order to the Express Dining service where passengers receive a single tray with their full meal at once at the time of their choosing, rather than course-by-course. Self-serve snacks and beverages are available throughout the flight for passengers to enjoy at their convenience as well as on-demand, hot mid-flight snacks such as lobster mac & cheese.
The United Polaris business class experience is the most-anticipated breakthrough in flying in years: redefining the way travelers view business class and transforming the way flyers take on international travel. Get ready to lounge, dine and sleep in Polaris style!
