UAL started this concept with the Red Carpet Clubs (in about 50 airports now). Since the merger with Continental, their President's Club & United's Red Carpet Club combined and are now referred to as the United Club. It is always good when traveling to have a place to go and get drinks and something to eat, relax, work on your laptop, read, talk on your phone, or whatever you do while waiting for your plane. Virgin's loft is pretty snazzy, contemporary, more intimate. Virgin's look is really cool.
