    Interesting, and not unexpected; I’m surprised the dual United Clubs survived the merger in the first place. It will be great to be able access the lounge from within the secure area. However, that will suck for AC flyers. AC has almost hourly business-targeted flights to YYZ, not to mention YUL and YOW. They need an accessible club, particularly to differentiate themselves from Westjet, which is coming to LGA in a big way. I predict that the old CO club will become an AC Maple Leaf Lounge.

    AC lounge replacing the old Ionosphere club turned President’s Club turned United Club? Combined with an airside UA Club, that would be a great outcome! I hope you are right. I would love to see an AC lounge there, assuming they finally remodel the place!

    That doesn’t help the gate situation, though. The gate areas are unpleasant enough already, I can only imagine what jamming more flights in there will be like. Also, while I am not holding my breath for a US takeover of AA, if that were to happen perhaps that could open the door to some creative gate swapping.
