British Airways Opens New Lounge at Newark Airport

Forbes is reporting that British Airways is looking to replicate its success at New York JFK's Terminal 7—the only airport terminal in the country controlled by a foreign carrier—at New Jersey's Newark Airport. After investing millions in upgrades, the airline’s new facilities at Newark include a brand new Galleries Lounge that is reportedly twice the size of the previous lounge.

This new space is located right by the airline’s new cluster of gates (B50-58). Inside, the lounge is split into First and Business class dining areas, with First offering serviced private dining booths and Business, which the airline calls Club World, customers able to serve themselves. (This means that all martinis and bloody marys are exactly the way the customer likes them.)

Newark customers will also see their inflight experience upgraded with newly refurbished Boeing 767s serving the airport, featuring the airline’s newest design. This includes more overhead space, upgraded interiors, and the option for World Traveller Plus (economy plus) customers to order off the Club World (business) menu.
