Notes: The Wingtips Lounge is a reasonably large club with amenities beyond that of a US domestic lounge, largely because most flights from Terminal 4 are international departures. Different types of seating are available from deep leather seats, to the family kitchen style area shown in the accompanying video(s).  In 2 of 3 daytime visits this lounge hasn’t been too crowded, but as you’d expect, it can get busy with flight delays or evenings when there are more trans-Atlantic flights departing. The common areas in this terminal aren’t a bad alternative with decent shopping and food choices, but if it’s a particularly busy day The Wingtips Lounge is a good place to be.

Wi-Fi: Wi-Fi is free. A number of stationary computers are also available but work space is lacking.

Service/Food & Drink: Service was friendly and fast. Food and Drinks are self-serve and employees regularly stock food/drink. The bar is self service and above average in our opinion (if only because they had fresh limes out for gin & tonics). Different food items are offered through the day. We enjoyed sandwiches, fruits & vegetables on our late morning visit. Later and earlier day visits have hot meals.

Convenience to gate: All lounges at Terminal 4 are landside (before security). To be safe,  give  yourself an extra 15-20 minutes to get to the gate…or more if the airport is crowded.

Rating: 4 hops (of 5)

How we got in/Strategy: We used our Priority Pass membership (recommended) to enter the Wingtips Lounge. As of 7/15/2010 single visit passes are available for $45 up to 5 hours and $10 each additional hour. Also, if  you’re already a paid member of Delta Sky Clubs, Continental Presidents Clubs or are flying internationally in  business/first class on a number of  carriers such as Singapore, Thai or KLM airlines you’ll have complimentary access to the lounge.   [/access]

    I was traveling on Aer Lingus on 7/12/12 and believe I left a (color: gold) glass case with 2 pair of glasses in it, one pair of sunglasses and one pair of glasses. I wonder who I can contact about getting them sent back to me. Thanks for your help! Sincerely Kathy Trainor
