What lounge at JFK is Copa using while Swiss is under construction?

I reached out to Copa via twitter for an answer and of course they had no idea. Does anyone here have an answer? Thanks.

When I fly Copa out of Toronto I use the AC lounge as it's Star Alliance, so are there other Star Alliance lounges in JFK? There must be.

Not in T4. The other lounges are the Delta SkyClub, Wingtips, and Etihad. I would suspect the Wingtips would be the one.

I tried using Wingtips last week on an Avianca ticket. No good using either the ticket or Priority Pass as Wingtips doesn't honor PP in the morning due to capacity controls.

The tool that should answer the question: https://www.staralliance.com/en/lounge-finder

The Air India lounge. No idea how good or bad it is.

Just as a note, the tool can be out of date. Air Canada has 6 different lounges at YYZ however only 3 are listed by the star alliance tool.

6? There's domestic. TB. INTL. The new extra fancy INTL one. One satellite lounge? What am I missing?

As far as JFK goes, yikes. Totally capable of being a great airport but my experiences there have been like 3 REALLY long stays sitting near the mcdonald's in the food court. I arrived like 10 hours early for LOT, just because I was on 2 tickets, where I live, etc etc. Also had the intention of checking out like all 4-5 Star lounges. Security wouldn't take my online BP. No LO kiosk to print out one...ended up just sitting around like 6.5 hours until checkin opened.

In the case of Toronto:
- T1 Domestic: Traditional Maple Leaf + Express Cafe Lounge
- T1 Trans boarder: Traditional Maple Leaf + Satellite Lounge
- T1 International: Traditional Maple Leaf + Signature Lounge

All New York airports are messed up just in different ways.
