When arriving at LHR - is Revivals lounge after immigration/ luggage pick up?

Hello all,

My partner and I are burning a last bunch of CO miles (I don't travel as much anymore) on Upper Class tickets in September (BOS-LHR return).

Revivals lounge looks like a nice way to freshen up for the day before heading out - particularly since we won't be able to check in at hotel until later on in day.

My partner wanted to know if we'll have our luggage w/ us by the time we get to Revivals. I thought we would, but why not check in w/ our friendly experts on Flyertalk? (Yes, I searched first).

Looking forward to the experience - our only other US- Europe experiences in Business have been in CO BusinessFirst and USAir Envoy. I'm sure UC *must* be better than Envoy - looking forward to comparing w/ BusinessFirst (which I last flew about a year ago).

Particularly looking forward to upper deck on 747 - have had a thing about that plane and have only flown on upper deck once before (on AF and it was coach).

Only second time on Virgin Air - first time was in early 90s in coach.

I'll stop rambling.

Cheers,

Alec (and Stephen) in Providence

Hi Alec.

I can confirm that the LHR Revivals Lounge is situated after baggage reclaim/customs. Basically you hop in the lift, go up a floor and you're at the lounge. It's well signposted.

Enjoy,

yes, after you come out of customs go to the elevator and it is on the upper level as you head towards parking in T3

Thanks!

tom & elite,

thank you for the data - looking forward to our first UC experience

(and to visiting London again - I was there briefly in November - Stephen hasn't been in over 10 years)
