PaxEx: Inside British Airways New Lounge in San Francisco
British Airways unveils its new lounge in San Francisco which will further enhance the passenger experience of customers flying from or through the airport.
The new lounge is the third in US to benefit from the airline’s investment plan for its customers, following the recent opening of its First and Club lounge at New York JFK’s Terminal 7.
The contemporary lounge is spread across 665 sq metres with fantastic views of the runway, thanks to floor to ceiling glass windows that run along the side of the lounge letting natural light flow in.
There are zones throughout the lounge to cater to customers' needs. Those wanting to unwind ahead of their flight, can do so at the beautifully crafted granite feature bar, that forms the centre piece of the lounge.
Customers wishing to catch up on some work ahead of their flight can use a new study area with wireless printing facilities. In the main seating area there is a deli bar where customers can help themselves to a wide range of food and drink options.
For the airline’s customers traveling in First, there is a new exclusive Boutique Dining room, where customers can enjoy fine wines and menus inspired by some of world’s top chefs.
The new lounge in San Francisco is the fifth lounge to open under the new design concept after the airlines Club and First lounges in New York’s JFK, Rome in Italy and Aberdeen in Scotland.
The British Airways lounge in Johannesburg will be next, with further investment planned in Geneva, Chicago and at the airline’s hub, London Heathrow.
