I'm going to guess this was taken looking out the window from the D8 UC at IAD (but also could be the C17 UC or the Polaris Lounge, but I don't have firsthand experience with either of those). I'm leaning toward D8 based on how low to the ground and the position of the aircraft at the remote stands in the background.

Was this taken at 3x zoom or something tho? The background seems much too close. Shouldn't there be a taxiway in between?

Yes, D8. My wife took this with a DSLR, which might explain the perspective.

Seconded. Somehow I thought that had been eliminated already. Clearly need to think less!

Yep. Yep. Yep. Airport was IAH. However, it was an E175 departing out of D3 so the view is to the south and should be a low silhouetted skyline of downtown Houston.

And, to get to how fumje 's logic WRT sunset unfortunately went awry, the flight was delayed so that, instead of having less than an hour to connect from E to D, I ended up having a few hours standing and sitting around a torn up D when I wasn't in the C1 club.

ORD (the red-on-white exit signs are distinctly Chicago) but I'm having a debate with myself about if that's the East wall of the B6 club or the B19 club, I'm strongly leaning toward B6.

Nice, it is indeed the B6 club. Im in between both clubs for my flight home, though tend to prefer this club since theres a lot more room to spread out.

Where is this? Also, for more points, what plane (type) and seat?

Looks like PHX and possibly an Airbus in 2 or 3F?

Nope - not PHX. Also not an Airbus nor those seats.

Hmm. I thought for sure it was PHX with the mountains and parallel terminal. Believed it to be a Bus based upon the upward opening cargo door.
