The LoungeAs I got off my flight from JFK, I was dead set to get to this lounge. I had missed it before while it was under refurbishment and another time during covid lockdowns so it was my mission this day to get into here.
It has a shared entrance with the Business Class lounge, which I had to wait in an hour for the Platinum Wing to open. Needless to say, I didn't waste a moment of its opening time.
The BarNormally I put the bar and dining together, but the bar here is central focus of the lounge, and what a bar. Top shelf liquors from Finland and around the world. Excellent selections.
General AreaThe general seating area which is the basic functional design of much of the northern countries.
Shower FacilitiesA very excellent dedicated shower and well, sauna area. Yes, a sauna, you heard me correctly.
SummaryThis lounge was high on my list since 2018 in my quest to capture all the first class lounges in the OneWorld system, and I'm so very glad I got to enjoy it.
The food is a little light in depth but very local in selection. The lounge is airy and quiet. The quieter section is more enclosed with a comforting feeling. The drinks at the bar are something I wish I could have enjoyed much more of - and would have if I was not working that day. A definite winner for Finnair.
