    Hi Everyone,

    I wanted to give you a heads up that we have temporarily closed the United Club at PHL, due to ventilation issues possibly associated with an airport roofing project that is underway in the vicinity. Although we’re still working to identify the precise cause(s) and mitigate appropriately, for now we’re erring on the side of safety and caution for both our co-workers and customers.

    As you probably know, United Club members and eligible Star Alliance Gold members (i.e. traveling on int’l itineraries) may use the US Airways Club(s) at PHL as an alternative to the United Club while we work to re-open.

    No worries, I'm pretty sure that smell is just Philly.

    As the saying goes, "I'd rather have a sister in a whorehouse, than a brother in Philadelphia." :D

    I just hope they actually fix the bathrooms while it's closed.

    With the AA/US shuffle to happen at PHL, it'd be nice if UA got some nicer gates and/or a better lounge space. I miss the old "downstairs" DL club and the really old Northwest club that was quite large.

    But just remember the mock epitaph W.C. Fields put on his tombstone
    " Here lies W.C. Fields./ I would rather be living in Philadelphia" :D

    The old NW club was slated to become an Admiral's Club, though I would imagine that this plan will be put on hold if it hasn't already.

    I am happy that UA has a club in PHL at all, given the closure of other outstation clubs lately. I am hoping that the impending end of the US relationship will lead to increased UA flying out of PHL; year-round service to LAX would be nice, as would be more frequent service to ORD, and while I'm dreaming, a return of mainline service to the hublet.
