You do get two lounge passes with the Explorer, so you can check out the lounge for free.

Only worth the fee if you fly often though. I got the Explorer and then the Club right after. You're a shoo-in for the Explorer so go for it!


I might have seen the airport lounge in LAX and it's very nice. I heard the one in SF and it has shower. I'm going to pass by over there to Asia next year.  I like to fly United over US Airways or Delta. I fly to LA two to three a year on United and it has direct flight and the plane is on time. 

 

Once I wanted to get Amex Delta Gold and I don't fly on Delta.  I want to try SW in the future. I heard they don't charge lugguage fee.

I'm not certain the Explorer passes or even the Club card get you into that particular lounge at SFO - note that I've never been in the SFO airport, but the shower appears to be in the UA Arrivals Lounge, which states:

 

"United Arrivals Lounge

Start your day refreshed with United Arrivals Lounge. A retreat where United Global First and United BusinessFirst customers traveling on a same-day ticket and arriving before noon may enjoy a shower and continental breakfast."

 

So I think you have to be travelling international on a Business or First class ticket to get in. On the other hand, the lounges at IAH (Houston) and EWR (Newark) appear to have showers in the general United Club (from their website), but the only direct flight to Asia is IAH to NRT (Tokyo), which is expensive for no particular reason.

And yeah, WN lets you carry two bags on for free, yet is (unless I'm mistaken) the only profitable large carrier in the US. I haven't flown on any of their flights for years, at least since around the time of ValuJet (when I was maybe 10 and the airplanes looked like this http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/6/66/Southwest_737.jpg ), but most people seem to be infatuated with them. I was planning my holiday travel with them or UA, but DL turned out to be a better deal.


I have never been to the airport lounge. So I don't know how good they are. All domestic flights are all the same and they used to serve food back in 80s.  Now they all give you a soda, juice or water.

Oh, me neither. I'm just relaying stuff from the UA website - wouldn't want you to arrive in SFO expecting a shower and discover you needed to purchase a $4k+ business class ticket to get in.

 

And you forgot the pretzels. I've always been a fan of the Biscoff.

I love the Biscoff cookies on Delta when I've flown them a few times.  They also have free wifi which is really nice.  United I think has it on a limited number of planes (or they will), but they need to catch up to Delta on this.

I need to wait a couple of more days to wait for Citi to update.  So I have a bigger chance to get approved for the card.
