I went to the C16 UC on 4/1 for the first time since it opened. My 1st leg was delayed, so it only left me about 15 minutes of UC time. Rather than spend it in the B6 UC, I decided to scope out the C16 UC, since I was departing from C19. 1st and last time I'll see the inside of it. I'll take the 5 minute walk from B, thankyouverymuch.

The only time the C16 lounge is acceptable is when I am on a 7:30 AM or earlier flight. By the time I am going to board a 7:30 flight it is already getting unbearably crowded on a weekday.

though i am unconvinced of the wisdom of feeding people about to travel on an airplane all-you-can-eat complimentary sausage, egg, and bean tacos; these are actually really good. came out around 7:10am at B18.

Given the size of the tortillas, I judge those to be diminutive burritos rather tacos.

What happened to the real dishes, mugs, and flatware?

Lately the clubs at ORD have been using plastic bowls and cups, and paper plates and coffee cups. Metal flatware is gone, having been replaced by plastic. When it was just one club I thought a dishwasher must be broken but it appears to be widespread. Does anyone knows what's up?

My wife and I were in B6 UC yesterday afternoon and there were no paper plates, cups, or plastic-ware. Real plates, bowls, and silverware all around.

I was at B18 a few days ago and I did see plastic, but in BOS right now there's silverware and proper plates. If anything, I think EcoSkies would probably encourage utilization of non-disposable glassware as opposed to paper goods. I thought I read that it was more environmentally friendly to wash than to recycle, but that might have just applied to baby diapers

F6 UA Club. 6/4/2018 no dishes or silverware all plastic

looks like a downgrade. All plastic and paper. I guess we are going back to picnic style. One positive: the bowls are 4x the capacity of the small ceramic ones. Theyll disappear as soon as they figure out the oatmeal is going away faster!

dont like drinking from a paper cup, sorry. Coffee goes well in a real mug, thanks.

Oh, I agree that washing is better than adding to the landfill (or the energy required for recycling). That's why I was so surprised!

even better

I was in the UCL in ORD last weekend. You know what? They have something even better - oatmeal, cereal, yogourt, toast, bagels and sweet breads. The egg option is tortillas with chorizo, eggs, and refried beans. Delicious!
Thinking about your questions, waffles? That is so 1980's. ORD is multi-cultural and I (for one) am happy that the UCL's are getting with the program.

Chicago lounges

Arriving into Chicago terminal c at 11am. The reviews of the United club in c didnt look promising. How is food there?

is it worth going to b or f and how long will it take to get there.

Coioncourse C is in Terminal 1
Yes, the club there is tiny (Was made smaller to make Polaris bigger) and is generally the worst UC in Chicago

B6 (underground tunnel to get from C to B) is the best, but even it gets crowded

I generally avoid ORD as much as possible and really don’t count on a lounge experience while I am there

Sometimes there is hot food for breakfast, lunch is salad and some cut up vegetables and cheese mainly

The terminal B one sometimes serves Italian Beef for lunch - but you will get some nasty looks if you try to dunk it.

Terminal F is a nice walk, reality is probably only like 15 minutes but has great views.

Lunch and dinner is more than salad, cut up vegetables and cheese. There is usually a hot dish: in the past two years, I had lasagna, chicken tetrazzini, chicken tortilla and now in the rotation it's the beef.

But not in the UC in the C terminal. There's no kitchen there.
