Capital One Opening New Lounge At New York JFK Terminal 4

Capital One currently has lounges at Washington Dulles, Dallas – Fort Worth, and Denver. They are due to open dining-focused spaces at Washington’s National airport and New York’s LaGuardia. And they’ve just announced a new lounge for New York JFK terminal 4.

New York JFK terminal 4 hosts Delta Air Lines flights, and also a number of other carriers like Aeromexico, Air Europa, Air India, El Al, Etihad and more.

The new terminal 4 lounge – also the terminal homes of American Express and Chase lounges – will be 13,000 square feet with expansive tarmac views. What we know so far about the new lounge:

  • A bodega with selection of coffees and bagels
  • Specially-trained cheesemonger with local cheeses, cured meats, and paired wine and beer selections
  • Continuation of their local brewery partnership including their own take on “the perfect airport beer” thinking about iconic moments, like having a beer at a ballpark or with a parent when you turn 21. There’s also a certain taste as you ‘set off for adventure’ or a journey at an airport and each lounge has a beer meant to evoke and commemorate this.
  • Local art including a hanging glass sculpture as the lounge focal point with “small glass stones suspended in a cascading form to symbolize the varied and colorful experiences throughout Manhattan” and another glass fixture above the main bar with “hand-blown glass and brass elements that emulate branches and vegetation inherent to New York City.”
  • full-service coffee bar, Capital One’s grab-and-go food offerings, and small plates
  • Showers

While Capital One lounges get crowded – people with access want to use them, because the food and drink options are really good! – I find that they handle queues better than American Express. Their virtual queueing works well, and once inside things aren’t too crowded to enjoy the space.

  1. Woohoo fantastic news! I don’t normally fly through JFK but might have to start when it opens. Hope LAS is still in the cards, although not expecting any of these to open anytime soon.

    In somewhat related news my friends who fly out or DCA say they peaked inside the Cap 1 Landing and were not optimistic about a Q2 opening 🙁 it was a month or so ago though so maybe they cranked up the progress since then

  2. @ Gary — Anything to escape the Delta madnes, but yet, what decade will this occur?
