There are very few things that push us to travel to JFK airport—who are we kidding, we go for flights and flights alone—but the TWA Hotel's new pool deck might do the trick. That's right, we might just be willing to sit in a cab for 45 minutes to get to an infinity pool with 360-degree views over... a runway.

Hear us out. The 63-foot-long pool has been designed after one of the best hotel pools in the world: the infinity pool at Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Antibes on the French Riviera, with long steps into the water that double as seating. While it won't give you sweeping views over the Mediterranean, the TWA Hotel's version does give you the chance to sit back, dip your toes in the water, and plane-spot with a drink in your hand.

Our enthusiasm comes with a healthy dose of skepticism—but the hotel managed to answer just about all our questions. What happens during icy New York winters? The pool can be heated up to 100 degrees. What about the noise? The TWA Hotel says it's actually pretty quiet—but we may have to see for ourselves before we believe them. How does the water stay clean? The water is filtered every 30 minutes, compared to every 6 hours for normal pools. And what about the air? The pool is on the seventh floor, so we're hoping it's a little less fume-y.

Hotel guests who've already booked a room get free access to the pool during their stay, while visitors, from the city or on a layover in the airport, can make reservations to enjoy a cocktail or the sunset with a side of Boeing and Airbus jets at the Pool Bar. Reservations are now available for tables starting at noon on May 15—so get booking. And if they start slipping away as more aviation geeks catch on, know that more bars are coming. Among them? A cocktail lounge in a restored 1958 Lockheed Constellation named Connie. The grand opening later this year, when all the restaurants officially open, can't come soon enough.
