Have a flight or a layover at JFK Airport? Check out the Wingtips Lounge.
Where to find the Wingtips Lounge
The Wingtips Lounge is located post-TSA security checkpoint in Terminal 4. Once you past security, make a right and the lounge is located approximately 100 yards down the hall and on the left.
Who can access the lounge
Priority Pass cardmembers can access the lounge for free. Be aware that Priority Pass entry is at the lounge's discretion. They have the right to turn guests away if the lounge is at capacity.
Premium credit cards like the Chase Sapphire Reserve and the Amex Platinum card offer Priority Pass for free. Remember to activate Priority Pass to receive the card. Each credit card also has a different additional guest policy — check with your benefits administrator for details.
Important: Due to capacity concerns, the Wingtips Lounge at JFK may have a blackout period from 5:00 PM-1:00 AM daily.
Other network members who can access the lounge:
• Lounge Club
• Diner’s Club
If you're not a Priority Pass member or part of the above networks, day passes are available for purchase for $50. Day passes are valid for up to 4 hours from time of entry.
Food and beverage
Wingtips offers a limited selection of food and beverage items.
The fruit rack needed to be refilled. There was also a self-serve snack bar.
A limited selection of wine and liquor are available, along with soda and juice for mixers.
We visited around 4 pm in the afternoon and a limited breakfast spread was still available.
Three different varieties of food were available.
The salad bar needed to be refilled.
The lounge was packed and seating was limited. There's an area with a view of the runway that was occupied (only 5 chairs available).
The Wingtips Lounge is good if you want a comfortable seat and free alcohol. I personally wouldn't pay $50 to access the lounge because the food seemed unappetizing. If you're paying out of pocket for the day pass, save your money and buy food at the food court.
