Appearance by Mr. Munoz and other seems to me to be indicative of a commitment to LA market. Kinda cool they're making time.

LA's Hottest New Club: Chic, Contemporary United Club Unveiled at LAX

New United Club marks latest milestone in airline's full-scale, half-billion dollar redevelopment initiative at LAXBuilt atop Terminal 7, the United Club features a terrace offering visitors spectacular views and outdoor dining

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --Cue the velvet ropes and flashbulbs: today United Airlines unveiled its newest United Club, the jewel in the airline's $573 million project to refresh nearly all of its customer-facing spaces in Terminal 7 and Concourse 8 at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).

At more than 20,000 square feet, the LAX United Club is one of the airline's largest and most stylish. The location features a gourmet kitchen and bar offering expanded food and beverage options, seating areas conducive to working and lounging and spectacular views of the airport, the Hollywood Hills and the Los Angles skyline. The design also takes advantage of the city's gorgeous year-round weather, with a spacious and scenic outdoor terrace where customers can relax with a cocktail or a meal alfresco.

To download high-resolution renderings of the new United Club at LAX, visit the airline's newsroom at http://newsroom.unitedcontinentalhol...AXenhancements.

"When you think of Los Angeles, you think of glamour and sophistication, and this new United Club certainly reflects that," said Julia Haywood, the airline's executive vice president and chief commercial officer. "LAX is a key piece of our global route network, and we're incredibly proud that it will house one of our finest United Clubs. Aesthetically, it's unlike any other, with panoramic views of the city and an outdoor terrace. These unique amenities along with fresh food, wine menus, craft cocktails and, most importantly, exceptional service and hospitality for our customers will elevate the entire experience to something that will truly impress and delight visitors."

United's terminal redevelopment initiative at LAX promises to deliver a superior and reimagined experience to the travelers at LAX, one of the airline's premier West Coast hubs and a key domestic and international gateway. Over the past several months, United has opened a new economy lobby, new baggage claim areas and, in cooperation with the Transportation Safety Administration (TSA), installed a new security checkpoint complete with five state-of-the-art automated screening lanes to modernize the airport security experience for the airline's customers.
United in Los Angeles
United has proudly served Los Angeles for more than a half century, providing its customers with 150 daily flights from LAX to more than 50 destinations across the globe. With over 5,000 employees throughout the region, United is committed to the Los Angeles community and building a workplace that will help the airline's employees deliver great service to its global customers.

He did grow up and go to school there. Half full glass says it emboldens the commitment. Half empty glass says 'hes out there for the holidays anyway.'

New club looks terrific, big upgrade and a lot better than the bunker of a SkyClub.

D'oh I just booked a ticket through IAH and LAX in two and should have picked LAX. I'm looking forward to seeing it in January 2017 though.

Especially the food offerings (if it different than the regular food choices and if it's not just one-time stuff they wheeled in for the preview).

Should have a better view of the El Segundo Refinery!

According to lounge website, no showers are listed as amenities. Maybe they haven't updated the site yet however.
