BE Boarding

I am flying on DL #72 from JFK - IST at the end of August. I would like to have enough time between my connection in JFK to visit the BE lounge. I am arriving in JFK from BWI around 2:48 PM. Flight 72 departs at 5:30. Any feedback is appreciated! Thanks!

Thanks! Is there still smoking sections in the BE lounge or another part of the airport? Also, what is the difference between the BE lounge and Crown Room?

To answer your question, there are no more smoking areas anywhere in JFK, AFAIK. And you should have plenty of time to check out the lounges. BE lounge is larger in size and has better snack selection, don't bother with the Crown Room, IMHO.

vinnmann, I too have been smoke free (2+ years, yay!), I know what you're talking about. Doesn't it feel great to not have to look for smoking opportunities in airports? Even go landside for a smoke and back through security when connecting...

In my DL days, I used to really like the BE smoking section in Terminal 2 - now it's just another corner of the BE lounge.
