    Hi everyone.

    Quick question regarding the UA IFL at IAD. I will be arriving from FRA on LH F continuing onto ORD on UA F. After I clear customs and immigration (yay for GE), will be I be able to nip into the IFL or should I plan to hit the LH lounge in Terminal B instead? I do know that I can hit the LH lounge no worries.

    Thanks! :)

    LH lounge. UA IFL for international *A F departing customers only.

    And I would go for the LH lounge just on general principle, much nicer.

    I don't know about that. the UA IFL has better food and better booze than the SEN club. The only thing the IFL doesn't have is showers.

    Thanks. I will be hitting the shower at FRA in the FCT, so I am not too worried about that.

    Just wanted to see where the best option to cool my heels during my shortish layover on my last leg home, whether it was the IFL or LH lounge. :)

    While the IFL may have decent champagne (typically Veuve Cliquot), Grey Goose, and other good stuff, it's still pretty much a dump. No showers as others have pointed out, smallish space overall, loud TV in the back, decor from the 60s, no real windows (the view is on the hallway), and dated furniture. I'd hit the SEN lounge, indulge in shower, and grab some food there. Just leave plenty early to make it back to the C or D gates.

    Another vote for the LH lounge (but only if the layover is long enough)

    I'd go with the LH Lounge personally...

    When are you doing this flight? I ask because I'm in the same situation on the 24th and I have a 5-hour wait at IAD!
