Delta Air Lines beats their SkyLounge by opening an outdoor sky deck where travelers can watch planes lift off the ground and step outside JFK airport without missing a flight. The terrace is on the roof of Terminal 4’s Concourse B, where Delta hopes people will find the space’s red, silver and black color combination to be a warm and casual feel. Our friends at The Culture-ist talked to designer Thom Filicia about the project, which is Delta’s largest Sky Club to date.

Travelers will find long couches facing short coffee tables, several chairs from the Janus et cie MOOD Collection neatly aligned with a small bar area at the end of the terrace. The bar does not serve alcohol. There are outlets to charge electronic devices for the ride. This adds to Delta Air Lines’s hope to make their passengers’ wait more enjoyable. Will this be a return to the stylish airport lounges of the 1960s, like JFK’s now empty TWA Terminal?
