The LoungeA lounge that has moved around O'Hare since I first was able to visit in 2009. When it initially started, well, it was ok, but I wasn't super impressed with it in a small room at the end of terminal K.
Now that it has moved to one floor below the Admirals Club, well, they really did a great job with the current location. I have lost count of the number of times I have waited between flights in this club and I don't regret a moment of it.
SummaryI've been to 5 of the international lounges in Chicago. This one is the best. Polaris I've heard is nice, but I'm not sure if it meets the quality of this one or not.
Of all the flagship lounges in American's system, this one is my favorite, even without Flagship Dining. I try to spend at least 5 hours per visit. At one point, I was here so much the staff asked me if I had a job or if I just flew around the world all the time (kinda a little of both in 2019).
