Per View from the Wing, it appears Delta may be planning to open a premium Delta One business class lounge at New York’s John F. Kennedy airport, as part of the airlines expansion at Terminal 4.
Terminal 4 is Delta’s current home at JFK, which operates out of the B concourse. As part of the $1.5 billion dollar expansion, Delta will be adding new gates at concourse B as well as taking over the gates at concourse A.
On the construction plan below, we see a new Delta One lounge at the end of the B concourse, which is likely going to be for premium Delta One business class passengers on international flights as well as transcontinental flights to LAX/SFO.
What’s interesting is in the latest press release from Delta earlier this month, they made no mention of the Delta One lounge.
The expansion will consolidate all of Delta’s operations into Terminal 4 at JFK – which currently operates out of Terminals 2 and 4 – enabling a more convenient travel experience for customers. The project will include the following enhancements:
- A new Delta Sky Club in Terminal 4’s Concourse A.
- Expanded seating areas and concessions.
- Modern wayfinding.
- New and upgraded restrooms designed with travelers in mind.
- New check-in counters that will improve capacity and efficiency with state-of-the-art technology.
- Installation of new self-service kiosks and self-bag check locations.
- Updated baggage claim and arrivals areas.
- New retail finishes.
- Public art.
