United to Renovate ORD T2, Triple Size of United Club

I didn't see this posted so:

United Continental Holdings is planning upgrades to its facilities in Terminal 2 at Chicago O'Hare International Airport, including new jet bridges for regional flights and a newly constructed United Club lounge.

A much needed upgrade if I may say so.

Both T1 and T2 are dated. T2 is the original ORD terminal though so it needs it much more than T1.

Actually, the "original ORD terminal" was old Terminal 1, built in 1955. It was demolished and replaced by the current Terminal 1 in 1987. Terminal 2 was built in 1962 and is still in use. The 1987 Terminal 1 was way ahead of its time and still looks quite modern today.

As a native Milwaukeean, I like bars in Wisconsin.

Thats not being very nice to the bars in WI.

I'm looking forward to this update being completed, since I'm flying express 95% of the time this will be a huge improvement for me. Maybe they'll move some of the flights over to CLE for the time-being.

They have a fix for that, just nobody wants to pay for it. The only fix is a new terminal building.

OK, so they are renovating one of the terminals at IAH, one of the terminals at ORD, and the IAD C/D concourse is still a cesspool.

I so wish someone would come into IAD and give UA some real competition.

That would be insults to all the bars in Wisconsin.

The music was there yesterday but the volume is quite small and only play at the end of concourse C side.
