OT: Crew Shop at LHR?

I was wondering, is there any Airline Crew Shop at Heathrow airport, especially somewhere around T5?

I have seen very few BA Crew I would wish to purchase. Could you elaborate on your requirements?

Yes there is a BA staff shop. It's behind the staff canteen landside in T5 on level 3 (or 2 perhaps). You need a pass to access it though.

Okay, I haven't got a pass unfortunately - is there maybe another one landside?

If you wear a suit you sometimes get offered a staff discount in LHR shops (I must be spending too long in the building). 5%-10% in some places.

The staff shop is landside - but it's in a staff area, so you need to have a staff pass to gain access to the area.

As it's a staff shop, only staff can access it.

There's a shop in Waterside, you can access visiting the heritage center which is very good and it's worth a visit

Having had, in Jersey, a major decision swung by the inaccurate placement of a ring binder on a voting button, that resonates. But then I guess you knew that

Really? Passes need to be displayed clearly at all times by staff, and discount isn't available without a pass.

What is it that you think you might want to purchase in the BA staff shop?

It is mostly discounted, end of line, perfumes and gifts, like chocolates about to go out of date etc. it is nothing to write home about!!

I bought some luggage tags I use for checked baggage: they're in a blue plastic with a big BA logo onto
