There is good news for anyone heading to New York next week. The fully refurbished British Airways Galleries Club lounge is about to open.
The lounge partly opened last week. British Airways told me yesterday that the full space should be open at the ‘end of this week or early next week’.
I have been promised a full set of photographs so keep an eye out on HfP.
The Galleries Club lounge can be accessed by anyone with a Club World ticket or who has a British Airways Silver card or oneworld equivalent.
I will be in New York in June and will do a full review then. The image below is one of the mock-ups of how the new BA facilities will look. There is a special BA website on the changes at JFK which you can read here.
