While Terminal 4’s check-in area is welcoming thanks to its open and airy design, it is also somewhat flawed by very long, wide corridors. The sheer magnitude of the structure also makes traversing the terminal a good workout.  “I did need a plane ride to get from the entrance to here today,” commented U.S. Rep. Joe Crowley at the opening day event.

Enhancing the technologically enabled traveler’s needs, 75% of the seats at the terminal are provided with electrical outlets. Wi-Fi, however, is only provided in airline lounges. For those with time on their hands or just a need to replace items left behind, shopping options have been dramatically expanded, and more upscale stores have been added.

Seven airlines lounges are located at Terminal 4 .  All are located after security and spread throughout the main concourse and the A and B concourses.  These include the Air India Maharaja Lounge, the Delta Sky Club, the El Al King David Lounge, the Emirates Lounge, the KLM Oasis Lounge, the Swiss Lounge, and the Virgin Clubhouse.

Concourse A hosts the Maharaja Lounge, for Air India passengers flying in first- or business-class (Executive class).  The King David Lounge is for El Al first-, platinum-, and business-class passengers as well as gold and platinum members of the airline’s Matmid frequent flyer program and those who are members of the King David Club.

The Emirates Lounge is open to the airline’s first- and business-class travelers as well as gold- and platinum-level members of the airline’s Skywards frequent flyer program.   The Oasis is open to KLM business-class passengers, SkyTeam Elite Plus members (e.g. Delta Gold Medallion or Flying Blue Gold or higher), and members of Priority Pass and Airport Angels.  A day pass is also available for $45.

The only Star Alliance lounge at Terminal 4 is operated by Swiss, which operates two lounges, the Swiss First Hon Circle lounge and the Swiss Business/Senator lounge. HON Circle, Frequent Traveller-, and Senator-level members of the airline’s Miles & More frequent flyer program are invited as are Star Alliance Gold members.

Access to the Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse is limited to those travelers flying in Upper Class on the airline and includes the Clubhouse Spa.  It is also located in Concourse A.

With some airlines having left Terminal 4 (Aer Lingus, for example, has moved to Terminal 5), Delta is increasing its footprint there, it would not come as a total surprise to me to some day see Terminal 4 exclusively occupied by Delta and partners. . Delta joint-venture partner KLM is already in the terminal, as is Virgin Atlantic, which announced a joint-venture agreement with Delta in 2012.  Meanwhile, Terminal 4 itself has benefitted tremendously from Delta’s largess, and has gone from a terminal I would go out of my way to avoid to one in which I now enjoy spending time.
