The new Alaska Lounge at New York JFK Terminal 7—the airline’s first club on the East Coast—is situated in the space formerly occupied by the United Club, on the mezzanine level just above security.
The Alaska Lounge features homely design with Earth tones and inviting sofas, a fireplace, and USB and power outlets at arm’s length. The club benefits from a prime location with three window walls and expansive tarmac views.
In the morning, guests will find a hearty breakfast selection, while throughout the day, Alaska offers a selection of snacks, salads, soups, and finger food. The beverage selection includes West Coast wines, microbrews, cocktails, as well as juices and soda. Starbucks-trained baristas prepare handcrafted espresso drinks—a feature unique to membership-based airline lounges in the US.
