Delta One Lounges Are Coming Soon
Update 5/6/22: This was confirmed by a Delta press release. The JFK lounge will open in 2023 and will be located in concourse B in terminal 4. It will be approximately 36,000 square feet in size. The LAX Delta One Lounge will open in 2024 and will be approximately 10,000 square feet. It will be connected to the newly opened Delta lounge at Terminal 3.
Delta Air Lines already has a network of Delta Sky Clubs. These are lounges open to members, and also select credit card holders and premium cabin travelers. Delta Sky Clubs have seen major improvements in recent years with the latest one just opened at LAX.
But unlike United and American Airlines, Delta doesn’t have lounges dedicated to just premium travelers. United has Polaris Lounges and American has its Flagship Lounges. However, that will soon change.
We have already heard rumors of Delta One Lounges, with one possible location at JFK. And TPG has now confirmed that the airline is in fact planning to launch Delta One Lounges for its premium travelers. Claude Roussel, the airline’s managing director of Sky Clubs, has revealed some details Delta’s lounge network.
“We are doing [a premium lounge] in New York-JFK,” he told TPG, adding that “having a differentiated experience as we are planning for in JFK is important.” The Delta One Lounge is in its early planning phase, but it will occupy a new space at Terminal 4.
And that’s not the only location in the works for now. Roussel mentioned that the rest are still up in the air, with Los Angeles being a big contender.
Delta is not focusing on new business-class-only lounges. The Atlanta-based airline is also planning new Sky Clubs. The next location to open, according to Roussel, will be in June, at New York’s LaGuardia Airport. After that, Sky Club in Tokyo-Haneda will open its doors during the last week of July or the first week of August. Later in the year Delta will open a brand-new club at Chicago’s O’Hare airport’s Terminal 5.
