Delta Air Lines Shows Off First Renderings of New Premium Lounges Coming to New York JFK, Los Angeles and Boston

Delta Air Lines has just revealed the first renderings of the first of three new premium lounges set to open in 2024.

At 38,000 square feet, the New York JFK premium lounge, which is set to be the first premium lounge to open in early Summer 2024, will include an all-year terrace, full-service brasserie, chef-assisted market with open kitchens and dedicated wellness areas.

Meanwhile, the 10,000-square-foot Los Angeles premium lounge will also feature an exclusive outdoor terrace and direct elevator access from the Delta One check-in area.

Rounding out the first three premium lounges to join the Delta network is the smaller 6,300 square-foot Boston lounge, which will have seating for up to 120 passengers. Both the Los Angeles and Boston premium lounges are expected to open in Q4 2024.

Delta hasn’t yet confirmed specific access requirements for its new network of premium lounges but they will be primarily designed for Delta One customers traveling on international long-haul flights and a small number of transcontinental flights.

These luxe spaces might also be open to some of Delta’s most valuable customers, but it’s unlikely that holders of any of Delta’s cobranded American Express will be allowed into these spaces.

It’s unclear, however, whether Delta might take a leaf out of AA’s book and allow passengers to pay their way in like with American’s Flagship Lounges.

In a statement, Delta said, “access guidelines for the premium lounge are still being finalized”, but the airline’s vice president for Sky Club and Lounge Experience, Claude Roussel, commented:

“We want each of our guests to receive a highly personalized and dedicated level of service. It’s not enough to have beautiful spaces and exceptional offerings. Premium lounge customers should feel welcomed and known when they walk in the door, just as they would at their favorite hotel or restaurant.”

“We look forward to providing that warm welcome and making ‘premium’ feel personal for each guest.” 

So far, Delta has only shown off the initial renderings of its New York JFK premium lounge, but Roussel says no two premium lounges will be the same, and each will be inspired by its host city.

Elsewhere, Delta is opening a new Sky Club in Charlotte, while Seattle is getting a second Sky Club, and the existing Sky Club in Miami is to be expanded to 12,000 square feet with capacity for 320 passengers. The renovations are due to be completed by Q2 2024.

Finally, the Terminal C Sky Club at LaGuardia is also undergoing expansion with the works hopefully wrapping up by early summer.
