King David - New York JFK Airport

Review by (United States)

Mediocre like everything else on El Al. The lounge is okay but kind of run down. The food is okay but not great. The staff is polite but not welcoming. The bottom line is that I would never pay to use the El Al lounge at either JFK or TLV. If the ticket is free then go ahead.

El Al King David Business Class Lounge - Tel Aviv Airport

Review by (Canada)

Clean and spacious lounge with a very large food selection. Furthermore shower facilities (not used by me) and even spa facilities (again - not used by me). Computer terminals good view onto the tarmac. Lounge has a large number of El Al staff members on duty which are all eager to help. Much better then the Dan lounge which is used by other airlines in Tel Aviv.

El Al King David Business Class Lounge - Tel Aviv Airport

Review by (Israel)

The new Terminal 3 has a large well-appointed King David Lounge in addition to the tired and overcrowded Dan Lounge. (Anybody with a gold credit card can get access to the Dan lounge - regardless of service class.) King David access is restricted to El Al passengers in business class (there is a separate First Class lounge I cannot vouch for) or to members of the King David Club (El Al's upper-tier frequent flyer program also available for an annual fee). I have a King David pass from work and use the lounge whenever I fly out. It is located at the beginning of the "D" concourse to your left - the four concourses are four compass points on the central atrium. There is good food available in the Mediterranean style (kosher dairy and parve) - as well as cakes espresso machines soft drinks. Many seats have power outlets next to them (make sure you have a Euro/Israeli 2-prong plug or adapter) as well as Ethernet ports. There's an upstairs deck if it's too crowded downstairs which also offers workstations with PCs (in case you didn't bring your own laptop) as well as a branch of Carmel Forest Spa (no experience cannot comment). There is also a business center downstairs as well as a service desk. Design is pretty nifty. I haven't seen a huge selection of alcoholic beverages but I'm not much of a drinker so it doesn't bother me. Coffee is as good as can be expected from automated espresso machines.

El Al Business Class Lounge - Tel Aviv Airport

Review by

Dan Lounge is the ONLY lounge at Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv regardless of carrier! The lounge is always packed and with Israeli backpackers and whole extended families that are clearly not traveling in First or Business Class! I think they have some kind of deal with a credit card company or something which allows easy access to the airports ONLY lounge. It only has two toilet cubicles that are unisex and one was out of order so men women and children all had to line up to use the one cubicle! The cold food and beverage table seemed more like a school lunch line with children and youth grabbing things and small children playing with the espresso machine. Last but not least airport staff and airline maintenance and ground crew come through to grab food and drinks laid out for the passengers. I witnessed an aircraft maintenance guy come through a back door and with his clearly dirty fingers and overalls finger several pieces of cake till he found one in the middle he liked stuffed it in his mouth leaving the others aside and walked out the same way he came in! Ben Gurion need to open several lounges to meet the need of its passengers and levels and status. Truly the worst airport lounge I've been in. Really disappointing since the new terminal 3 is so nice!
