    Are there high-speed moving sidewalks or similar to get you to the far reaches of the T-4 concourse?

    SkyDecks are being built in other SkyClubs, esp. ATL. Looks like iPads are becoming big for orders, they are all over MSP, in bars, restaurants, etc.

    You forgot the other awesome thing is the gate that’s dedicated to you 🙂

    I like that “doesn’t completely suck” has become the new standard for U.S. carriers 😛

    I wish they could follow the example of SIN and have an open-air smoking area in the SkyDecks but that would make too much sense.

    Great to see that there are many paid-for food options, which is one thing that United Club really needed. Does the club uses the same food vendor as the ones in the terminal where you can also order via iPads?

    Comparing the new Sky Club to the new United Club in ORD F concourse, it seems that there’s a trend of using a combination of wood and glass, along with mid-century chic furniture.

    Seth, thanks for sharing the review, I look forward to visiting the T4 terminal on my next Delta flight to JFK.

    Also, I know you are done with your penny transfers for Google Wallet(that was so cool of you) but is there anyway someone else on your list who received that upgrade to ‘send money’ can help me get upgraded too. I’ll be more than happy to pay that penny back or pay it forward in multiples 🙂 Thanks.

    Anyone wanna help a fellow out? Anyone 🙂

    Yep, it still is JFK, I flew in on opening day NRT-JFK, delayed 2 hours for mechanical and traffic, then a huge backup at immigration that I bypassed with Global Entry, then baggage claims monitors said 5 while luggage was at 4 after a half hour wait (I had some gifts that had to be checked), good thing I originally had 5 hours between arrival and my JFK-RUH on Saudia.

    […] Aramean has the best take on Delta’s refurbished T4 at JFK, with The Sky Club is the only impressive part of Delta’s new JFK T4. I was unable to partake as I was flying in NRT-JFK that day and as I commented, “Yep, it […]

  12. Free Tours of the New LAX Tom Bradley International Terminal on June 22 - Hack My Trip

    […] About three years ago, work began on refreshing the almost 3-decade-old TBIT, as well as adding additional gates known as Bradley West.  That means the terminal is “new” in the sense that Delta’s “new” Terminal 4 at JFK is “new” (so not “new” to certain people). […]
