Hell at ORD LX Lounge

After Hell on immigration, which I duly reported in a post, I am now typing this sitting o a departure lounge bench as both F and C X lounges are standing room only. Apparently one HON showed up with 4 guests (not family members) and they let them all in!

Again, Swiss ground staff in ORD are totally incompetent!

I still prefer to torture myself for one hour in LX lounge in ORD and enjoy my first class seat for the rest of the flight

Its a general consensus that the LX lounge in ORD is best avoided and that your should head to the SAS Scandinavian lounge near M15 for better comfort.

I concur. The flight was, as usual, perfect

Question

Any shower??

I am flying from Montreal to Zurich via ORD and have 5 hours to kill in Chicago. Was thinking of maybe going downtown for a while as I have never been in Chicago. But then that means I need to get a shower before boarding LX9.

Thanks in advance for your help. ^

No showers in T5 lounges.

Anywhere else?
I can't believe that there are no showers with *A lounges in such a big airport...

If your flight departs from T5 TSA will not let you in to any other terminal (not that I am sure that RCCs at T1 have showers). T1/2/3 are interconnected, T5 is not. If you are desperate for a shower, call ORD Hilton (located next to T1/2/3 and 3 minute monorail ride from T5) and ask if they can offer you any daytime-use rate. It will not be cheap, but most likely doable.

The Hyatt (Regency?) O'Hare also has decent walk up rates. The AA club in T3 also has showers.

agreed!
I was just in the LX lounge - no seats left. There was only some cheese, and 1 type of wine.
I made my way over to the BA lounge (open door policy as a BA gold) and the selection is much better with almost every seat empty.

The SAS lounge as I recall from a year back had a decent food selection, a few types of wines and plenty of seating.

*Though anything beats the contract lounge LO uses in ORD*

No- Swiss lounge is even worse... it is much smaller than the WFS lounge LO uses. SAS lounge wins, anyway...

LX ORD Lounge Hours

Did a search but could not find the information.

Can someone please tell me the Lounge Hours of Operation for the LX Lounge in T5 of ORD?

I am flying ORD-ICN on OZ Monday 4/30. Flight departs at 12:00pm and trying to figure out my *A Lounge options. I know SAS also has a lounge in T5. I am *G with RCC Membership and flying J reward.

Thank you

I flew TK out of ORD a few weeks ago, and surprised they don't use a * lounge, but use the Swissport lounge in T5. TK departs late, I think 9:30p or so, so I know Swiss lounge is closed by then ;I think 7:30), but surprised they didn't use the SAS lounge, who also has a flight after 9p. Not sure who OZ uses,
