British Airways New Lounge At JFK Airport

British Airways is investing $65million (£52m) to bring a new lounge at JFK International Airport in New York by 2019.

It will be located in Terminal 7 and is open to first class passengers, as well as Gold-grade members of British Airways' loyalty program and their Oneworld Emerald equivalents, including Qantas Platinum and Platinum One card-holders. The new lounge is 60% larger than the previous one.

Customers flying in First and Club World can enjoy an enhanced check-in experience and direct access to Fast Track security.

The private section increases comfort and ease. Throughout the area, power sockets are built into many seats and at work stations around the departure gates.

The welcoming bar introduces an array of drinks to satisfy one's desires.

The wine room has specialized machines to adjust themed wines at exactly the right temperature and have been oxidized to the correct level.

Executive chefs Gavin Mackenzie and Waylon Walker have created a menu with dishes influenced by the season.

The bowl food concept was created for passengers to enjoy light meals before a their next journey.

The fresh refurbished club is a big advancement to BA's mission. Passengers in Rome and Aberdeen have already experienced the change while other destinations such as Geneva, San Francisco and Johannesburg will very soon.
