You're flying UA?
Please post how many guests they allow you to bring.

Just wanted to update, that I was able to access the Dan Lounge by showing my United Club Membership Card. I was allowed to bring my wife and toddler into the lounge no problem (and most people didn't give me evil looks like they did in the United lounge in Newark).

כבודה is the hebrew term for a mass of luggage. I never heard it used outside of the airport.

Did you read the thread??


So has anyone had any recent experience flying UA coach with UC membership? Or is the changed website an indication of a policy change?
ok thanks. I will be sure to update after my upcoming flight.
You're flying UA?
Please post how many guests they allow you to bring.
Just wanted to update, that I was able to access the Dan Lounge by showing my United Club Membership Card. I was allowed to bring my wife and toddler into the lounge no problem (and most people didn't give me evil looks like they did in the United lounge in Newark).

They didn't give you evil looks because it's a crappy lounge to begin with, so there's not much a baby can do to make it less pleasant. ;)
