All Around the Largest, Newest Delta Sky Club (and Sky Deck!)

May 30, 2013 at 3:43 PM | by | ()

Part 1: The gates and restaurants
Part 2: Up in the SkyClub and on the SkyDeck

24,000 square feet. Yes, that number is correct. The newest Delta Sky Club is also the largest of all, taking that title from Atlanta as part of Delta's campaign to become "New York's airline."

In that 24,000 square feet at New York-JFK's Terminal 4 Delta has placed a variety of seating areas, a long bar, a spacious dining room, a hall of private showers, a TV room, a business center, a VIP room, and even an outdoor terrace. Now, we've been in some big SkyClubs beforeólike the sweet one at Tokyo-Naritaóbut this one will definitely make frequent Delta flyers very very happy. Our favorite details include power outlets and USB ports simply everywhere, artwork like panels of aircraft fuselage, and the best views of the tarmac one could hope for at JFK.

Plus, those flying in economy, other airlines, or without high enough SkyTeam status will still be able to buy daily passes for $50 a pop; no snobbery up here.

What a $1.4 Billion Airport Upgrade Looks Like: Inside Delta's New Terminal 4 at JFK

May 28, 2013 at 1:33 PM | by | ()

10:30am and already Shake Shack has a line.

That's far from surprising for the many locations of the popular burger & fries joint around New York City, but this is Terminal 4 at JFK International Airport, which, up until Friday, May 24, didn't have a Shake Shack. It also didn't have the Funfetti cupcakes of the new Cake Tin bakery, the gift-perfect candles in the Jo Malone shop, the fried yardbird and cornbread of Marcus Samuelsson's Uptown Brasserie or the sweeping views of a busy tarmac from the first outdoor deck at a Delta SkyClub.

Now it's a challenge to imagine JFK without it all.

Freebies and $4 Lunchboxes for New Yorkers at Delta's T4X Pop-Up

Where: 376 West Broadway [map], New York, NY, United States
May 2, 2013 at 10:56 AM | by | ()

All logos should be made of mini cupcakes

On May 24, Delta debuts the massive extension of Terminal 4 at New York-JFK International Airport to travelers. No need to wait that long to peek at brand-spanking-new space and its staggeringly massive 24,000-square-foot SkyClub (with first ever SkyDeck!), however; last night the airline opened a pop-up space in Soho to show off ahead of time.

The spot—called "Delta T4 Xperience," or "T4X" for short—will be open to the public Tuesday thru Sunday from 11am to 3pm, from now until May 22. The first level boasts exhibits to virtually "tour" the new terminal, plus a vending machine churning out Delta-branded freebies (a mirror, luggage tag, passport holder or cold drink cup). Head up to the second story for some Nespresso caffeination and a preview of the highly anticipated SkyDeck.

Now, for the really good part:

A Sneaky Peek at Delta's Massive New Home at JFK's Terminal 4

October 22, 2012 at 10:05 AM | by | ()

There are some 60 airlines flying into and out of New York-JFK Airport. Competition is fierce, but New York's always game for a little of that. Passengers are looking for the cheapest tickets (of course), shiniest planes, most routes and newest facilities. Come next spring, Delta will claim at least that last one as it opens a 9-gate extension of Terminal 4, complete with the largest SkyClub lounge in the world.

The entire project cost is in the billions, so it's no fresh paint fixer-upper or anything; every month construction workers build $26 million worth of new stuff into Terminal 4 (that's over $1 million every workday!). Why should you care? Because Delta wants you in it, loving it and flying out of it...and soon. They are on schedule and under budget (whoa) for an opening in May 2013. Arrive early for your late spring Delta flight, because this place will warrant some checking out.

Pan Am's Iconic JFK Terminal Will Definitely Head to the Big Airport in the Sky

October 18, 2012 at 4:37 PM | by | ()

The length of Terminal 3 as viewed from its replacement: the extension of Terminal 4

Before moving forward, we look back a moment at the iconic Worldport (Terminal 3), former JFK Airport home of Pan Am and current roof over much of Delta's JFK operation.

Since early 2010 we've known the end was nigh. Delta plans to demolish the building after moving into their massive expansion of the neighboring Terminal 4, which will all go down in May 2013 and which we'll tell you all about tomorrow.

Take a Virtual Tour of Delta's $1.2 Billion Dollar Future JFK Terminal 4

July 22, 2011 at 10:06 AM | by | ()

Fans of airport terminals—we assume that there are at least some of you out there—will want to mark your calendars for May 2013. That's the month when Delta plans to unveil their expanded Terminal 4 at JFK, which by then will have cost at least $1.2 billion and taken 4 years to build.

The terminal will have 9 new international gates, more room for everything from security to check-in, and a bevy of shops and restaurants. Delta has even published a half-preview, half-virtual tour animation, which we've helpfully embedded below, with some highlights.

The current setup at JFK has Delta's domestic flights using Terminal 2 and their international flights using Terminal 3. Among other things that forces passengers connecting internationally to navigate their way through the JFK AirTrain and then through security again, providing entertainment to the locals but a sub-optimal traveling experience for everybody else. Hopefully centralizing everything out of Terminal 4 will fix that.
