John Wayne’s United Lounge Orange County is part of the Trip Report: The Greatest Diamond Challenge of All Time. Check out how I planned my Hyatt Diamond Challenge and how it cost next to nothing here.
In this report I will cover:
- Las Vegas, Nevada
- San Diego, California
- Carlsbad, California
- Scottsdale, Arizona
- Mexico City, Mexico
Desperate times call for desperate measures. Stuck in Orange County on a layover back to Phoenix I scrambled through my fanny pack looking for either United or American lounge passes. Of course I had none leftover (nor do I have a fanny pack) so I sat in shame at the Southwest Lounge. But, on the way to Mexico I did have two United passes that were expiring at the end of the month so I went ahead and used those.
My apologies for having this post out-of-order in the Trip Report but I highly doubt the lounge underwent any serious changes from when I visited on Friday and when I was denied access on Monday. I’m sure John Wayne would’ve found a way to get in both days. Overall, his airport was immaculate and the lounge was pretty damn good considering it was United.
Here’s some pics for your enjoyment:
