Experience Business Class reimagined with United Airlines’ Polaris

23 July 2019

Named after the North Star, United Polaris® is the shining star of international business class. From award-winning elegant airport lounges and redesigned cabins to carefully curated inflight services and amenities, United Airlines are taking business class to new heights with their new Polaris service.

Offering a comfort and sleep experience like no other, Polaris promises to bring a new level of quality to every aspect of premium cabin travel - from bedding and amenities to the beverage and dining service.

In addition to these fantastic new features, United Polaris customers can also enjoy Premier Access travel services, including free checked baggage, designated check-in, priority boarding and a variety of exciting inflight entertainment options.

What can I expect onboard?

Here are just a few of the luxury touches that you can expect onboard your Polaris flight:

Saks Fifth Avenue bedding: Aiming to give you the best possible sleep in the sky, with up to 6'6" sleeping space, United Airlines have worked with Saks Fifth Avenue to create custom, luxury bedding. You'll have the choice of two different blankets - a quilted duvet and a lighter throw cover, so you can find the perfect amount of warmth. Mattress cushions are also available upon request, giving that extra comfort to your onboard bed.

Restaurant-quality dining: Polaris customers can indulge in a chef-designed, multi-course inflight dining experience. United have created a menu that features fresh and seasonal ingredients, as well as bold flavours from around the world. The dishes will rotate on a monthly basis, so there’ll be plenty of new dishes to experience, and for those mid-flight cravings, there’s a range of à la carte snacks to enjoy.

Sleep-themed amenities: When you fly in United’s Polaris class, you’ll experience the perfect environment for a restful sleep in the sky. Your luxurious amenity kit features premium skincare items from Sunday Riley, together with ear plugs and an ergonomic eye mask to block out any distractions. Cosy slippers are provided, and on flights longer than 12 hours, pyjamas are also offered. To get you ready for sleep, plug in your premium noise-reducing headphones and tune into the relaxation channel in your seatback entertainment system for some peaceful sounds or even guided meditations.

Relax and unwind in the United Polaris lounge

Before your flight, relax and unwind in one of the dedicated United Polaris lounges, which are available at a selection of destinations across the globe, including Chicago O’Hare, Houston Intercontinental, Los Angeles, New York Newark and San Francisco. This year, United took home the Skytrax Award for Best Business Class lounge in the world, for their offering in San Francisco. Over the course of the next few years, lounges are also set to open at Washington Dulles, Hong Kong, London Heathrow and Tokyo Narita. If a United Polaris lounge is not available at your departure airport, don’t worry as you'll have access to United Club locations and other partner lounges instead.

Available exclusively to international premium cabin travellers, the United Polaris lounges offer a thoughtful selection of amenities, including signature seating, a tucked-away relaxation area with day beds, and spa-like facilities to help you prepare for a restful flight.

There’s also a pre-flight dining option, where you can savour an extensive selection of hot and cold selections or enjoy a seated meal service. Pair your meal with your favourite beverage, including specially curated wines, premium spirits, craft beer selections and handcrafted cocktails.
