Flying MAD-LHR in Biz, do I get fast-track at LHR?

Since I am travelling on seperate tickets MAD-LHR on IB then LHR-SFO on UA so they usually wont check my bag and I have to claim, clear customs and go over to UA (sucks)
Question is will IB give some sort of fastrack for LHR?

You get a fast track in Mad. I am not sure if Lhr has fast track for arriving passengers.

LHR Terminal 5 does have fast track immigration, but I think invitations are only given to BA long haul passengers.

Assuming IB won't check your bags through you'll have to reclaim, make your way to T3, and recheck.

Fast track is irrelevant at LHR as if you get your bags checked through you follow the Flight Connections route (purple signs) to T3 and you don't go anywhere near Immigration or baggage reclaim.

However T5 fast track is only available to long haul arriving non-EU PAX and only in the morning.

Quick related question:

Does Iberia use Terminal 5 at LHR? For some reason, I had thought it used Terminal 3. The LHR website says T5, but I thought I would check with those who actually fly IB to/from LHR!

I'm hoping it's T5 so I can use the Galleries First lounge!

Definitely T5. It used to be T3, but changed a while back.

T5 but never was offered fast track intra-EU. If you're arriving from Spain you most likely will miss the big early morning rash of flights from the US but don't know about India/Africa times...
