British Airways has released images of its newly refurbished First Class lounge at New York JFK Terminal 7.

The lounge opened last Friday 4 October 2018. These pictures were taken by BA’s press photographer on Monday 7 October 2018.

This is part of its refurbishment of the terminal. The lounge had been closed since January of this year.

It follows the design aesthetic of BA’s recently refurbished Aberdeen and Rome which a minimalist Scandinavian feel.

The lounge has been enlarged. It is described by BA as having an “opulent” First bar, a new “boutique” pre-flight dining area and a quiet work area.

One genuinely new feature is a dedicated wine room with a wide range of wines available to taste. This could well make its way over to Heathrow when BA refurbishes its lounges there in the coming years.

Passengers travelling on British Airways from New York JFK Terminal 7 who are BA Executive Club Gold cardholders and Oneworld Emerald equivalents are eligible to use the lounge. Passengers ticketed in First Class can use the Concorde Room which is not being fully refurbished.

The lounge is also available to First Class passengers of ANA when flying on ANA from New York.

The next lounge to be refurbished is the expansive Galleries Club lounge which is now underway, leaving parts of the lounge partially closed. This is expected to be complete in 2019.
