Go Ice Skating On The Runway at the TWA Hotel

TWA HotelIn a couple of weeks, the TWA Hotel at JFK Airport will be adding a new winter activity which should appeal to aviation buffs and those just looking to have some fun.

The hotel will debut their Runway Rink where “visitors and guests can take a spin on the tarmac around the hotel’s 1958 Lockheed Constellation Connie airplane (now a cocktail lounge) and then watch an ice skating spectacular!” Continue reading Go Ice Skating On The Runway at the TWA Hotel

Much Better 2nd Visit At Priority Pass Lounge, Bobby Van’s Grill- JFK Airport

Priority Pass LoungeA couple of months back, I wrote about a disappointing Priority Pass Lounge, Bobby Van’s Grill at JFK Airport.

BVG isn’t a typical Priority Pass Lounge, it’s a restaurant where members get a $28 credit. If you bring a guest, multiply it times 2 and you have $56 to spend during your visit.

While we weren’t happy with our selections, Kim and I figured another visit would be in order in the near future. Continue reading Much Better 2nd Visit At Priority Pass Lounge, Bobby Van’s Grill- JFK Airport

Disappointing Priority Pass Lounge: Bobby Van’s Grill- JFK Airport

priority passIn 2017 I wrote a review of what I considered to be the most interesting Priority Pass lounge we ever visited.

The lounge I am referring to was actually a restaurant at London Gatwick Airport. The way a visit worked was that with your membership, you received a £15 credit. Guests of the  card holder also receive this credit off the bill.

When I heard that Bobby Van’s Grill at JFK Airport had become a Priority Pass lounge, I wanted to visit but it just never worked out until our recent flight to Barcelona. Continue reading Disappointing Priority Pass Lounge: Bobby Van’s Grill- JFK Airport

Back in 2013 Delta opened a nice outdoor space at the Sky Club at JFK Airport called the Sky Deck. Check out my post about it here.

While I enjoyed visiting the Sky Deck, I haven’t been back since I haven’t flown much out of T4 and also no longer have access to the lounge…

Today was a big day at JFK Airport as a new outdoor space opened by JetBlue at T5. Best of all is that the T5 Rooftop is open to all- no lounge membership or status needed! Continue reading JetBlue T5 Rooftop Opens For All At JFK

Step Back in Time: TWA Flight Center, JFK Airport

TWA Flight Center

Last year I finally had the opportunity to visit the TWA Flight Center during Open House NY. I had hoped to visit during previous years but it just never seemed to work out.

With Open House NY starting tomorrow (Oct 11-12),  I thought a photo-tour from last year’s visit would be appropriate. (If you’d like to visit the TWA Flight Center, it will be open to the public on October 11 from 11AM-3:30PM. Continue reading Step Back in Time: TWA Flight Center, JFK Airport
