With 8 new Frontier destinations announced recently , I think Popeyes will be booming -food quality is definitely better when you turn right after TSA than left

Count me in one one who would like to see a club at SLC.

The club at MSP is one I've been to often, as it's my most frequent destination for work travel. It's extremely small and usually crowded, but the staff is friendly.

I'm hoping the network will continue to grow.

This is great news. Have a decent amount of business travel to RDU and MSY. Having a lounge will make the wait better!

Is it possible that RDU is more of a business travel destination (research triangle) and TPA has more vacationers (central Florida)?

The location for the TPA club was approved and plans drawn up just prior to 911. So, 17 years later, nada. It will be on the second floor overlooking the concourse, similar to the AA (old US) club in another terminal. Access via elevator. Every time I walk past it, I look and see... nothing. Anything would be a big plus, especially since I have a lifetime membership and live here now.

Sure, it's possible. But FLL has a UC, and I bet there's way more business travel to TPA than FLL, and almost twice as many pax.

Any word on the opening date for MSY? Is it tied to the opening of the new terminal or on a longer time frame? I'm flying through at the end of February.

Update: Found more recent MSY information that the new terminal won't open until May '19, it was previously Feb '19.

There with you about SLC, and love the whole team at MSP. Feel almost like it is the best "Cheers" of airport clubs in the USA TBH.

The new club will open with the new terminal or shortly thereafter if construction delays hit. But the goal is to have it ready as part of the shift, similar to LGA.

Very interesting possibility given the amount of work TPA has seen the last 5-10 years

I spoke with a MSY agent yesterday and he said that the new United Club is supposed to be larger than the new Delta Club, which would be surprising. He, also, said it is not certain that the UC will be opening at the same time as the new terminal.
