American Airlines Admirals Club, New-York JFK T8: Back to the reality of the carrot club

Small stop at the Admirals Club at gate 30 a few minutes before boarding my flight to Boston.

Today’s itinerary

Location and welcome

The lounge is located at the intersection of gates 30 and 40. It is accessible by stairs or elevator.


The welcome is very warm, and the agent even tells me that it is better if I go to the Soho lounge… But as my boarding is in less than 15 minutes, she changes her mind!

Lounge design

Difficult to take some pictures in this almost full lounge…


Actually, it’s a true unrenovated carrot club… It is certainly comfortable but it clearly lacks style.

Lounging and dining areas are available.



The restaurant offer is very limited… But the customers seem to appreciate it.


Bottom line

A comfortable space for a short connection… But 5 minutes away from the Soho lounge, it’s not worth it.
