I have been a Presidents Club member for many years and I like the Complimentary high-speed wireless internet access but don’t need it anymore. I do wish that they have Computers to use like they have at many of the Delta Sky Club Crown lounges. I also like the American Admirals Club at the executive center at DFW Airport terminal c near gate 19. It has an executive centre with 21-individual work desks and computers offering internet service. I suggested it to a stranded friend traveling for Super Bowl XLV, to seek it out. Some of the United Red Carpet Lounge do have computers, so that is an advantage of the CO UA merger.
