And BOOM, another month is done! Hello, November! Here are our most popular posts for October 2019. Some of them were actually written before October (heads up that rules and offers change and we can’t guarantee that those older ones are still accurate), so take a look to make sure you didn’t miss any of the good stuff:
Ever since the Airspace Lounge closed in JFK’s Terminal 5 in 2018, the only lounge left in the terminal is the Aer Lingus lounge, which is only open to passengers on their flights. JFK’s Terminal 5 building is modern for a U.S. airport and offers many amenities that people are looking for while waiting for a flight. Not having a lounge is a minor inconvenience but there are plenty of places around the terminal to sit, eat and work. JetBlue passengers are accustomed to not having lounge access so it’s not a huge surprise there isn’t one, even at one of their major hubs.
However, JetBlue has added a feature into T5 which is usually only found in airport lounge spaces. A rooftop terrace.
When you first get access to an airport lounge, all of them are magical. You get snacks and drinks. Maybe there will be some hot food (or not). You get free WiFi access and plenty of chairs with plugs. You could get used to that kind of life.
It doesn’t take long to realize that there’s only so much snack mix and crudites that you can try before they all taste the same. Then you visit a lounge that’s more than you thought possible. This usually happens at a flagship lounge located at the major hub city for an airline, like the Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse in London, Turkish’s lounge in Istanbul or the Lufthansa First Class Terminal in Frankfurt.
These aren’t just lounges, they’re experiences. Shouldn’t you want to spend some time there to enjoy them?
So my question is, how nice does a lounge need to be for you to schedule flights including a long layover just so you can spend more time at the lounge?
