JFK Experience

Delta recently added a new perk for travelers who are flying on DeltaOne.  DeltaOne is Delta's new name for business class, formerly known as BusinessElite.  If your are on a DeltaOne reservation and happen to be going through JFK you will now be presented with a menu card upon checking into the SkyClub in Terminal 4.  The menu includes a snack/light meal and a glass of wine.
