United has had a checkered and messy start with the Polaris concept. The concept is brilliant and rather beautiful for a brand like United but it is flawed in terms of its roll out. They opened the first Polaris Lounge in Chicago and for almost 16 months did not open up another. Suddenly it’s as if United has awoken and is rolling them out of the production line in a quick manner with the San Fran and Newark lounges opening within the last three months. Now United is set to open two more with Houston the next cab off the rank on June 29.
