Alaska Airlines opens new lounge at New York's JFK Airport

Alaska Airlines has opened the first of its 'new concept' lounges at New York's JFK, and it provides a hint at what's to come at the flagship Seattle lounge next year.

The New York lounge (which is also open to Priority Pass card-holders) at JFK Terminal 7 "brings to life the company’s West Coast vibe with a cool, comfortable space to work or relax while traveling through JFK," the airline says.

The design is based on a "living room-esque" space with multiple seating areas for business and leisure travellers.

A Starbucks-trained barista "will create custom handcrafted espresso beverages and full-leaf tea beverages" while the self-serve snack bar includes oatmeal and yogurt bars in the morning and salad and soup in the afternoon and evening, accompanied by a wide selection of microbrews, West Coast wines and a signature Alaska Airlines cocktail.

"Starbucks - trained barista" . That made me laugh - at least they do Flat Whites these days. Will keep an on this as Alaska is one of the Qantas codeshares I use internally in USA ,understanding that that alone does not gain me access to lounge

Not sure a "Starbucks trained barista" can be touted as positive. In fact, i'd much rather get a coffee from someone who has never ever worked at a Starbucks
