Etihad First Class Checkin & the Wingtips Lounge JFK
I grabbed an Uber from the Sheraton Laguardia East hotel to Terminal 4 at JFK to check in for my Etihad flight to Abu Dhabi. The terminal was really crowded and I was having trouble finding the Etihad First Class check in line.
Turns out that was because I hadn’t been dropped off at the end of the terminal and had come in through an earlier door.
Check in was fast and I was directed to a special security line that just wound up feeding into the main security line. (Not quite the British Airways premium line in Terminal 7).
I was several hours early so I made my way to the Wingtips Lounge.
It was decent, definitely more interesting than a United lounge and I rather liked the study/library area. Lots of windows and was brightly lit but had very few power outlets.
They did have hot food options such as eggs, ham, etc but it had a little bit of a cafeteria feel and I was still full from breakfast at the Sheraton so I just got a cup of tea.
The one thing I will say is that it was definitely well, if not over staffed. There was always at least one staff member in evidence, straightening the food displays and picking up dishes.
