Together, British Airways and American Airlines have up to 16 direct flights per day from London to New York. So, it’s no wonder that British Airways has decided to give its most popular long-haul destination a bit of a makeover.
The opening of its highly anticipated new Club Lounge at JFK Terminal 7 completes a £52 million investment in the airport. It features carefully designed new spaces to cater for a host of business and leisure needs before take-off: from relaxing (with a craft beer), dining (on freshly prepared food) or working (in a fully powered workstation). Plus, there are other changes to British Airways public areas with a spacious new check-in concourse (inspired by The First Wing makeover in London), new security areas, contemporary shopping malls and smarter gate seating. The whole idea is to give customers a smoother, faster and more relaxed airport experience. Luxury has landed at JFK!
Flying the American Airlines flag
American Airlines’ investment in JFK Terminal 8 includes a bigger Flagship Lounge. This means that, alongside First class customers, Business class customers travelling on qualifying international and transcontinental flights can now enjoy access to the lounge too. The smarter, larger area has quiet rooms, individual work pods, and even luxurious showers for travellers who want to refresh before they fly.
