United Airlines will refresh and renovate several of its United Clubs, including three at Chicago O'Hare International Airport, according to a note that went out to employees this week.

The new clubs will have improved wi-fi, more power outlets and more comfortable seating, United told employees. "Each club will reflect a new, modern style with upgraded amenities," United said in the note. 

Here's the plan, according to the note:

  • ATL (Atlanta): Open a new club in fall 2015
  • DCA (Reagan Washington National): Complete renovations of our club in spring 2015
  • ORD: Begin design and planning for renovations of three clubs in spring 2015
  • SFO: Open new club in late 2015
  • LAX: Continue to update current clubs while we prepare for opening of a new greatly enlarged facility in 2017. 
  • HKG (Hong Kong): Refresh the club in spring 2015
  • NRT: Install new furniture and carpet in spring 2015

"These renovations will incorporate the same modern design elements as our other recently renovated club locations and will include artwork featuring United’s unique aviation history, panoramic views, more comfortable seating and updated amenities. Improving these spaces is important for elevating the customer experience for our premium travelers," United Clubs Director Michael Landers said in the note to employees.
