You know it's bad when there are seatings directly across from the bathroom entrance.

Their draft system is totally down (leak of some kind?), but to not have any bottles is just laziness.
Also no Bloody Mary mix, but the Frat House gin is still there.

Their new contractor is needs to get their crap together.

I haven't formally complained at all during the COVID era, but fired off a complaint to 1K voice last night. Tired of Newark not even trying...
That club is really deplorable with the lack of coffee machine too.

Apples, oranges, bananas (sometimes), Cheerios, oatmeal (channel "Escape from Cellblock D"), and a really dreadful, incredibly salty, and completely unappetizing melted ersatz cheese & ham biscuit grenade. Don't get your hopes up

If you are talking about the Jimmy Dean MacMuffins, I rather like them (except for the salt).

Hey all, have one of those Terminal A flights tomorrow for the first time in years so had a couple questions:

1. Is A club open?On my flight status page it says A under construction So arrive early, but my gate still says A24 so not sure what thats supposed to mean whether terminal is still functional but restricted, or what it is

2. as a slightly off topic extension, what exactly is the status of term A, how early should I take that shuttle there? Etc. Thanks!

1. UC in Terminal A is open: https://www.united.com/en/us/fly/tra...locations.html

2. Assuming you're flying into Terminal C. If you'r so inclined, saunter over to either C74 or C93 UCs to see what they have. Usually, Terminal A and C74 food offerings are fairly similar. If you want more time in a place that's quieter and has phone booths, take the bus shuttle over to A sooner rather than later. Use the restrooms in the UC unless you feel like using the pop up ones in the middle of the gate area.

Yes the UA club is open -- and as one of the newer clubs it is well equipped -- except for the bar area. I was through a few weeks ago and the bar area basically had nothing on tap -- same thing with the drink machine -- all are down for repair and have been for a while (I saw a recent report that this has still not been fixed).

My only complaint with terminal A is that the TSA precheck security seems to be closed a lot (I fly EWR-DCA a lot unfortunately) so you get a card and have to go through the regular lane which can be painfully slow and always seem to attract people that apparently haven't flown in years and years and are stunned they can't take their massive water bottle through... The food area before security is still there but quality isn't great -- and there isn't much in terms of food post security. I also always get that notice about arriving early but honestly just arrive as I always have and it hasn't been an issue...

The corridor that splits off to the right at the far half of the pier with the high C gates? That was new to me when passing through there recently.

Didnt notice any new gates though. Was 123A actually a different door than 123?

I flew MCI-EWR-DCA on Thursday and, until a short time before the CRJ-500 to DCA, I forgot the Terminal A club was an option. Terminal C, as usual, was packed with people wanting Jimmy Dean sandwiches. A, otoh, was deserted and felt peaceful. It looks quite nice and the food selection was switched to lunch, so way better than the breakfast in C. I didn't have enough time to visit the bar, though I did hear somebody ask what was on draft and be told nothing was. I saw a ton of alcohol bottles in the back, though I'm not sure if they were serving bottles only or just doing nothing at this time. Pretty certain the coffee machine was up and running, though as I don't drink it, I didn't poke around the machine.
