Virgin Atlantic Reopens Clubhouse at New York JFK
Virgin Atlantic has announced the reopening of its Clubhouse at New York JFK airport on July 19, 2021. Upper Class customers, Flying Club Gold members as well as Delta’s Gold, Platinum, and Diamond Medallion members, can once again enjoy access to the airline’s flagship North America lounge. They can enjoy a complimentary a la carte menu featuring five-star dining, tapas dishes and afternoon tea plus a wide selection of cocktails, wine and soft drinks.
Customers visiting in the morning can choose from a selection of breakfast favorites including eggs benedict, avocado on toast and a full English breakfast and for those visiting later in the day, the chicken tikka masala and the famous vegan Beyond Burger are on offer, washed down by a selection of beverages including the iconic Virgin Redhead cocktail.
The Clubhouse experience has been tailored to ensure the safety of customers. Customers will be encouraged to remain in their seated areas and enjoy table service from the Clubhouse team.
In addition, Virgin Atlantic is pleased to announce a new partnership with Plaza Premium Group which will now be responsible for the day to day running of the JFK Clubhouse under the guidance of the Virgin Atlantic team. Virgin Atlantic will also work with Plaza Premium for the Clubhouses in Boston, San Francisco, Washington and Johannesburg once they reopen as travel restrictions around the world start to relax.
Plaza Premium has been in the news recently as the Capital One partner for its new lounge network. Plaza Premium also has its own lounges which could be accessed by Priority Pass members until July 1, 2021.
