Named for the North Star, the brilliant point in the night-time sky that travellers have looked to as their certain and constant guide, Polaris is the shining star of Business Class that flyers can look to and depend on for true comfort and a sleep experience like no other. The brand-new United Polaris first and business class service is designed to bring a new level of quality to every aspect of premium cabin travel — from lounge to landing — and provide the best sleep in the sky.

Your journey starts in the modern, elegant United Polaris Lounge where you can relax, recharge, or engage in a quiet work session until it’s time for take-off in an oasis of thoughtful design and furnishings. Personalise your dining experience with multi-course meals and a variety of a la carte snack offerings, plus choose from a range of highly rate beers, wines and premium spirits. Comfortable relaxation areas, rest pods and shower facilities help you arrive at your best.

The new United Polaris seat is now on select aircraft and will be added to additional aircraft over the next few years. In the meantime, you can enjoy all other aspects of the United Polaris inflight experience - from bedding and amenities to beverage and dining service — on any long-haul international flight across the global network plus Premier Access premium travel services, free checked baggage and a variety of inflight entertainment options and United Wi-FiSM.

United Polaris customers can enjoy a new chef-designed, multi-course inflight dining experience. In collaboration with chefs from The Trotter Project, a non-profit organization committed to mentoring and internship programs for youth interested in the culinary arts, United executive chefs created a menu that features fresh, seasonal ingredients and bold flavours from around the world. The dishes will rotate every three months, so you'll continue to have new dishes to experience on board.

Redesigned seating, luxury bedding and calming amenities offer the ultimate comfort for relaxation and sleep. In a first-of-its-kind partnership, United worked with Saks Fifth Avenue to create a choice of custom, luxury bedding. Ergonomically designed seats offer fully customisable recline and foot-rest options, converting to a 180-degree flat 6ft 6in bed. Plus, the enhanced amenity kit includes noise-reducing headphones, Soho House & Co. Cowshed products and 100% cotton pyjamas.
