Best Airport Lounge: Emirates Lounge, John F. Kennedy International
BY Lou Dubois
There's nothing understated about the luxury at this gorgeous lounge. Appointed with cream leather chairs, Italian marble counter tops and floors, not to mention a business center, great food, beautiful showers and 42-inch plasma screens, Emirates' New York lounge for business and first-class passengers has it all. The only down-side? It's not easy to access. But hey, that's part of the exclusivity, right? Bonus: purchase a first- or business-class ticket and Emirates picks you up in New York City in a town car—a hidden luxury for all who have traversed city airports in rush-hour traffic.
