LaGuardia Airport’s New Lounge for One

LaGuardia Airport’s New Lounge for One
Jennifer Billock

Business travelers making their way through New York’s LaGuardia airport have a new in-terminal working solution called Jabbrrbox, a single person workspace inside a pod-style booth, complete with touchscreens, tech functionality, and power outlets – something that’s scare at the airport to begin with.

Recently, writer for The Points Guy Max Prosperi was stuck waiting for a flight in LaGuardia – the airport travelers routinely say has some of the worst passenger amenities and some of the loudest noise levels – when he came across a new feature of the airport called a Jabbrrbox.

A Jabbrrbox is a single-person pod-style workspace, complete with a desk, power outlets, WiFi, and a touchscreen. The pods are small but efficient. To make a reservation to use the pod, you have to register on the touchscreen outside. It costs $10 for 15 minutes, $15 for 30 minutes, and $30 for 60 minutes, and you can only reserve a max of three hours.

Once you register, you’re sent a code that works as both the entrance key and the WiFi password. Inside, there’s another large touchscreen that controls the inner workings of the pod – including lighting, flight information, a photo booth, and the WiFi.

Prosperi reported the downfalls of the Jabbrrbox pod as the see-through door that offers little privacy, the lack of space within, and the heat – the air was stagnant and it quickly got hot inside the pod. The positives, though, are a quiet space to work that blocks out almost all noise from in the terminal and, well, it’s just a pretty neat perk for travelers.

    How is a perk if you need to pay for it?

    If you are in terminal C or D at LGA and have a Delta Amex card, admission to the Sky Club is $29 and features WiFi, unlimited food and drinks and clean washrooms. Just sayin….

    a see-through door? It’s going to be hard to shoot up in there.
