Here at HK Travel Blog none of us are fans of United Airlines. If you read our reviews you will generally feel our frustration at their comfort, service and inflight offerings. However, they are actually quite big for a foreign airline in Hong Kong so it can be worth knowing about them. From Hong Kong, they offer direct service to:
- Chicago O’Hare, which we reviewed outbound from HK here and inbound here, in economy class (we’ve also reviewed the premium economy seat they use on some Hong Kong flights);
- Newark, which we reviewed outbound from HK here and inbound here, in economy class;
- San Francisco, which we have reviewed outbound from Hong Kong in economy class here; and
- Guam, which we have not reviewed as such but we did review the Guam to Narita service and Guam lounge here (plus a full trip report on Guam here).
Of course United has a huge domestic network in the United States, so they also offer stopping service to a large number of other destinations from HK.
Note that they have axed their fifth freedom flights out of Hong Kong, like the late night departure they used to offer to Singapore.
United also has its own lounge at Hong Kong airport, the sizeable and pretty good United Club. Hong Kong is also down to get one of its revamped Polaris lounges at some point, although if the O’Hare model of doing that by cutting space from the normal lounge then it may be a backwards step for non-Polaris lounge users.
