Alaska Airlines this week debuted its new Alaska Lounge at John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK). The latest NYC addition builds on the existing Alaska lounge network where the airline already has a presence in Anchorage, Los Angeles, Portland, Oregon and Seattle.
The lounge, the first Alaska one for America’s east coast, features a fresh, modern yet homely design with multiple break out seating areas. At hand for lounge lizards will be Starbucks-trained baristas who will create some of the coffee brand’s signature espresso beverages and full-leaf tea beverages.
Food wise there will be oatmeal and yogurt bars in the morning and salad and soup in the afternoon and evening. Also to be enjoyed are a wide-selection of microbrews, West Coast wines or wait for it…that signature Alaska Airlines cocktail from the lounge’s welcoming bar.
The Alaska Lounge is located on the mezzanine level of Terminal 7 at JFK and is now open to Alaska guests traveling through or out of Terminal 7 who are either a first class passenger or have purchased a day pass or lounge membership.
Judging by the pictures from the airline this definitely looks like a nice little part of the world (or in this case JFK) to whittle away a few hours before the next flight.
