Terminal 7 at JFK has seen a lot of transformation, a lot of it has been attributed to British Airways, which has spent $65 million USD to remodel all sections of travel in the Terminal. These updates include the check-in, boarding areas, and even lounges such as the new Club World flagship lounge.
Spanning across 22,000 square feet of space, the British Airways Club World Lounge at JFK is elegant and comfortable, but we wouldn’t consider it to be the best out of all their other business class lounges. Nonetheless, it’s large enough to accommodate several hundred passengers comfortably throughout the day.
This updated British Airways Club World Lounge has all-new seating designed with lots of blue in mind—British Airways’ staple color. This section has plenty of tables and plugs to keep your devices charged without having to ask your neighbor if you could use the port beside them. Although the colors are a bit dull, it’s still a decent lounge for the airline.
This British Airways Club World Lounge also features an entertainment zone equipped with excellent sound quality by Sony, so you can always catch the latest games or keep up with the news at any time during your stay there.
British Airways Club World Lounge has a new and improved full-service bar called Quaich Bar, so if you’re there for a good cocktail or delectable, fine wine, then this is where you should go. A bartender will be there to mix up your favorite drink or surprise you with something new if that’s what you wish.
But the bar isn’t the only place to grab a drink. There’s also a “Brewdog craft beer room” with fresh beer on tap, including the beer specifically created for British Airways called Speedbird 100. Aside from beer, the Brewdog craft beer room has soft drinks and water for grabs, too.
Like most lounges, the British Airways Club World Lounge has a separate dining area where you can find hot and cold dishes at the Brassier, as well as another spot with finger food such as cheese, fruit, crackers, chicken wings, soup, salad and more.
Luckily, British Airways kept the Elemis Spa but refreshed it with a new design and atmosphere to match the rest of the lounge. The spa offers a variety of services for your face and body that will help you ease into a restful flight. Reservations can be made beforehand or when checking into the lounge.
Passengers traveling aboard British Airways Club World, or other oneworld partners in business class, as well as those who hold a Sapphire or Emerald oneworld status, have access to the lounge.
