I posted yesterday about the new partnership between United and Westin, initially including pillows and blankets from the “Heavenly Bed” collection on Premium Service flights, which I would assume will be rolled out on international flights within a few months. Yahoo had an article today which took the concept one step further, now including a special Westin inspired area in the Red Carpet Clubs:
Also, as part of this partnership, select United Red Carpet Clubs in New York (JFK), Los Angeles and San Francisco will debut custom-designed Westin Renewal Lounges later this year: private areas outfitted with luxurious touches from Westin to create a calming oasis where travelers can relax before or after their flight.
This sounds interesting, and I’m very curious to see what their plan is. I doubt we’ll see showers or anything amazing, but probably something more like Air New Zealand has in their international lounge in AKL, with a few reclining, comfortable chairs. After all, space is VERY limited in the RCC’s at JFK, LAX, and SFO, and they are already overcrowded in their high density “configuration.”
