  • Delta Sky Club

    Delta Sky Club makes for a comfortable place to relax no matter which airport you’re waiting at, but the flagship lounge at JFK is a standout. Guests enjoy free wifi, plenty of power outlets for recharging devices, fresh food, premium drinks from THE BAR and a huge open seating area with floor-to-ceiling windows offering natural light. A highlight is the outdoor SkyDeck overlooking the Terminal 4 ramp.

    Narita International Airport - Tokyo

    JAL’s First Class Lounge at Tokyo Narita offers many of the perks you’d expect from a premium lounge – shower rooms, message chairs, free wifi – but the real standout is the hand-rolled sushi made right in front of guests at the lounge restaurant. Another perk is a shoe polishing desk run by British shoemaker John Lobb.

  • First Class Lounge - Emirates

    First Class Lounge - Emirates
    Dubai International Airport

    The Emirates First Class Lounge in Dubai ranks among the most innovative in the world, as it feels more like an entire concourse – you can board your plane directly through the lounge. Guests also find duty free shops, a light buffet at nearly every gate, two sleeping rooms with day beds, a cigar bar, spa and a wine cellar with an on-staff sommelier.

  • First Class Terminal - Lufthansa

    First Class Terminal - Lufthansa
    Frankfurt Airport

    Lufthansa set the standard for first class terminals with its dedicated premium terminal at the Frankfurt Airport. The experience includes a personal assistant to whisk each passenger through security and manage check-in proceeders, a restaurant and bar with some 130 different whiskeys, a cigar lounge and plenty of spaces to relax, from easy chairs to office spaces.

  • The Private Room - Singapore Airlines

    The Private Room - Singapore Airlines
    Singapore Changi Airport

    While you can’t go wrong with any of Singapore Airlines’ SilverKris lounges, The Private Room really stands out. This space for first class and suite passengers includes a sit-down dining area, private rooms for work or relaxation, shower rooms and a generally quieter atmosphere than the often busy SilverKris lounges.
