Where Will the International Flagship Lounge @ New York JFK be Located?

Just wondering where exactly will the IFL be located in JFK. I am looking forward to using this rather than the old AC outside security (where most of the trans con departs before)

It will be located above the main concourse across the big hallway from gate 12. When you come through security, you would under a bridge of sorts. At each end of the bridge are elevators. Go into one of them and you will see the button to press that already says "Admirals Club" and "Flagship Lounge."

Another way to find it is to look to the right, toward the entrance to the temporary Admirals Club (not worth a visit, doesn't even have drink chits). On the right, you will see an elevator and stairs up to where the new club will be.

Thanks.

I visited the new AC back in APril and find it pretty ncie, but just lacking any amenities (eg. food and free drinks). The IFL is long overdue @JFK.

I hope they will open one up at DFW as well, since it is their HUB

Reports here indicated the temp AC has a comp bar - thus no need for the chits, right?

I want to confirm one thing, I thought the AC is permeant already? Where is this temp one? I thought after going through security you have to go through a tunnel type of corridor and then at the end u can take the elevator and the AC is located 1 level up? Is this temp AC located in the OLD terminal?

Question Current access rule for transcon in C?

Sorry to piggyback on this thread, although aa.com is not any different, has anyone experienced AC access flying paid or award C class on the JFK transcon's yet as has been discussed?

I've had to use drink chits at the JFK ACs (old and new) every time I've wanted something stronger than a Coke.

Thankfully, drink chits are free and unlimited, thanks to Qantas.

The AC after the tunnel is permanent.

There is now a temp AC just after security on the right. I guess this serves the gates to the left just after security.

As mentioned the temp AC is very poor. Its a big room with some chairs in it...

A temporary Admirals Club lounge is now open on the B Concourse of the new terminal. The temporary facility is located on your right, just steps beyond the T9 security checkpoint. This temporary lounge will remain open until the new Admirals Club lounge on Concourse B is completed.

The Admirals Club lounge on Concourse C in Terminal 9, and the Admirals Club lounge in Terminal 8 are also available.

I was referencing the new TEMP AC.

The drinks in the temp AC are free, but the selection is more limited.

There is not a proper bar, just a few bottles of booze and beer. No beer on tap. It is not serve yourself. They only have plastic cups.

While no where near as nice as the permanent club, it is a lot less crowded in the evening rush hour.

They have booze? Sounds like a proper bar to me!
