so from what i gather in this thread, it probably would be better to spend time at the UA IFL instead of the LX F lounge?

I'll be coming from a CO flight, so will be arriving in T1 and have 3 1/2 hours before my flight on LX.

how long is the treck between T1 and T5?

thanks

10 minutes by train. I would get a day room at the Hilton in front of T2/t3 for 70 bucks, shower and relax in civilization

SWISS lounge at ORD

Hi,

quite simply, its size is ridiculous. There is hardly any space, and everyone seems to stick their bags onto the seat next to them to make the problem even worse.

surely, they must realise that the size is too small ?

If you think that's bad, you should see the LH / Star Alliance lounge in Dubai. If First is full on the FRA flight or there are multiple HONs there is not enough space for all in the F section. Curiously, I've flown with only 4 pax in F and seen it full too...perhaps HON heavy.

The C side is usually swimming with bodies.

At least the staff there will redirect you to the adjacent contract lounge which, while much larger, isn't nicer.

I was there last Monday and 4 or 5 of these armchairs were broken (they had 'BROKEN - DO NOT USE' pieces of paper attached - quite impressive for a Business Lounge).

The lounge also needs some refurbishment - it is quite dirty.

one of the most annoying issues I found was that people put their bags on the chair next to them. When asked by new guests entering if someone was sitting there, they said yes !

Next time fly to Dubai on Emirates. Their First class is a million times better

The SAS Business Lounge (which is closer to the gate).

If you are BA Gold or Premier their lounge is an option.

I assume *G flying same day on LX would have access to the SAS lounge as well?

Thanks

Flying LX/SK/LO out of T5 you can use the LX, WFS (aka Worldwide VIP, need to collect a pass from the LO CI desk) and the SK lounge.

The SK facilites are the best. The Swiss lounge is a blast from the past, barely converted from the Swissair design.
