United operates fifty lounges at forty-five major airports in six countries, with the vast majority being in the United States. United Clubs feature complimentary beverages, breakfast and afternoon snacks, complimentary Wi-Fi, power outlets, and newspapers and magazines. Lounges at some airports with international services provide shower facilities.
United Club annual access cost varies with elite status, ranging from US$450 or 60,000 miles for a Premier 1K elite, to US$550 or 70,000 miles for general members. Day passes are available for US$59 at the door. In addition, Star Alliance Gold members receive complimentary access, with the exception of United elites traveling domestically within the United States. United Club members are eligible for entry into Star Alliance Business Class lounges and Frequent Flyer Lounges such as Lufthansa's Senator Lounge and Air Canada's Maple Leaf Lounge. Amtrak Guest Rewards Select Plus and Select Executive members have complimentary United Club access with any United flight, regardless of destination or class of service.
Prior to the 2010 United-Continental merger, United Airlines lounges were known as Red Carpet Club and Continental Airlines lounges were known as Presidents Club. On October 1, 2011, United phased out the "Red Carpet Club" and "Presidents Club" names. Lifetime memberships previously available for purchase from the Presidents Club were converted to United Club Lifetime membership. New lifetime memberships are no longer available for United Club.
