If in F from JFK you could try to get a spa treatment as well as visiting the new First lounge as well as the Club lounge and CCR at T7

Hopefully I'll get a late check out 2-3pm so given the traffic at that point it'll take over an hour to get to JFK. I will have to see what treatments are on offer as none of them are prebookable apparently.

Iv'e flown F a couple of times to JNB and LAS, but have never had time to visit the lounges so I think its time I did!

Reserve a cabana and get a shower and some sleep then follow it by a massage and then a meal with a good wine

Update: I managed to survive 10 hours in the Corcorde Room at T5. Shower, breakfast, massage and facial, a couple of espresso martinis, couple of cosmos, a lie down on the terrace with snacks here and there. I had a cabana booked for a couple of hours but didn't end up using it; it looked quite claustrophobic.

I had 1A (dining) and 1K (sleeping) on my flight, so all in all it was quite a civilised 26 hour door-to door journey (not sure id do it again though).
