Doesn't look as if it has moved according to the ORD terminal map but these blog posts suggest the First Class section at least went through some facelift. I can confirm in a few weeks.

At the end of February they were still using the lounge directly across from security.

I personally prefer the SAS lounge although it is a bit busy as there are also passengers for the CPH and IST departures there at the same time.

Does anyone have information on the hours of the LX or SK lounges in Terminal 5? I have a long connection next Saturday and departing on LX2609 @14:50. Everything I've seen on the lounge hours for LX says it is only open in the evening for the LX9 flight.

Open to either lounge, will be arriving in T2 in the morning so could hang around in the UC, but would prefer a better lounge close to my gate.

Don't worry the LX lounge will be open for the LX early after noon flight. On these days the lounge opens at 12.30pm

It is quite busy as well as they share it with CX at this time.

Thanks. Will hang out in T2 for a while until noon and then head over. Guessing the SK lounge is not an options at all.

So Swiss seem to suck more and more. I am FTL and the only reason why I chose Swiss over LH flight from ORD is because Swiss has its own lounge at ORD. Well, today I was quite surprised as a lady at the front desk denied me entry in a very rude way. Normally I would not care but I had a bunch of e-mails to respond to so I needed to sit down and chill out. Thus, I pulled out my phone went to Swiss web-page and showed there that she is wrong and I do have access to the lounge as a FTL.

In the end I am sitting in a lounge but that was quite a humiliating experience. Anyone else with similar stories? Swiss employees should learn what is at their own web-page.

Well done! Annoying, how those lounge dragons can be...

ORD SWISS Lounge Hours?

What are the hours of the Swiss lounge at ORD? I'm a *G departing on a 10p departure for IST in Y and am hoping to find a lounge to spend some of my layover in. Would rather not do that in a United Club and then transit terminals but not sure what T5 options are from 5p - 10p for a *G.

Thanks.

at 5 pm Terminal 5 is a zoo! Long wait lines, grumpy staff and no facilities except the lounge behind security. Are you flying TK to IST ?

As far as I recall the LX lounge closes after the last LX departure to Zurich at 7pm.

Don't know which lounge TK is using ( assuming you are flying TK to IST )

Thanks. When does T5 calm down?

TK uses the SAS lounge which is quite nice.

Chicago Lounge Options?

Used the LX lounge recently and it was a nice quiet place in the horrible T5 terminal. Great food and drinks.

Does anyone know the current opening times of this lounge? In an earlier post it was reported that the lounge would open at 12.30pm for the early afternoon LX flight but does it stay open at least until the departure time of LX9 at 19.25?

I have been there for the afternoon departure and the lounge is open and it is definitely open even past the departure of LX9 as I think also a few other airlines use this lounge (for example CX).
