Perhaps youíre not serious .... but if so ..... youíll have to excuse my scepticism. Iím inclined to think that even those on (previously) generous expense accounts might have a problem with that ; not least those employed by corporates who could well find themselves tightening the travel budget in the wake of months of lost revenue / profits.
C-suite spending shareholder cash would balance being able to work vs. staying in terminal.

Our travel budget was set pre CV-19 and has gone unused for months.

Not saying this would apply to all sectors but if I was BA I would be marketing lounge access available to ticked First class ticket holders as a benefit rather than reconfiguring the Galleries lounges to let a small % of CW customers in and hiring extra staff to serve them individually.
