Although British Airways will move terminals at JFK and cozy up with American Airlines in a few years, the airline is still investing millions into its current terminal 7. The £50 million in improvements include new public areas, gate spaces, a new First lounge, and now the newly opened Club (business class) lounge.

New Lounge Features

The new British Airways Club Lounge at JFK Terminal 7 is the airline’s flagship US lounge facility that spans 22,000 square feet, serving up to 12 daily transatlantic flights to London. The lounge re-opened this past weekend.

There’s new seating areas with more power outlets, a new Sony-branded entertainment center, an updated Elemis spa with pre-flight treatments, and a brasserie-style pre-flight dining facility for Club (business class) customers.

Other branded collaborations include a BrewDog craft beer room and the Quaich Bar — two Scottish businesses that are getting a spotlight in New York.
