Unveiled in April 2019, the British Airways Club Lounge at New York’s JFK airport is the re-incarnation of the venerable Galleries Lounge.
The club is home to departing British Airways and oneworld Business Class passengers, as well as Emerald and Sapphire guests. Spreading across 22,000 sq. ft., British Airways’ flagship lounge in the US features a minimalist decor, but comes packed with amenities including an entertainment room, business facilities, shower suites, an expansive dining with a generous hot buffet, and a full-service bar. Guests may also visit the Elemis Spa for a complimentary 15-minute treatment—however be sure to inquire early as availability is limited.
The spacious seating area is outfitted with power outlets at every seat.
