First Lounge LHR T5

Does anyone have any experience of a First passenger being able to take spouse and 1 child into the First lounge when spouse and child are in CW?

According to the rules I do not believe this is possible for CCR or F lounge.

I think there is a children's play area in Galleries Club lounge and the facilities are quite good as far as lounges go anyway, so I would recommend all of you go to the Galleries Clubrather than trying for anything that you are not entitled to according to the BA's lounge access rules.

Edited to add: my comment assumes that the non-F traveller is not an OWE/GCH. If he/she is, then everyone can enter GF but not CCR. Since the non-F travellers are in CW, they can access GC in their own right in any case, hence my recommendation for using GC.

You are only entitled to take 1 guest into the F lounge with you

Can a GCH/OWE take more than one guest into the Club lounge?

Just one guest per GCH/OWE.

No, one only, I believe. But since the OP is in F, and the spouse and child are in CW, they can all get into GC, but only the F traveller + one guest to F/CCR, assuming that the non-F traveller is not a GCH/OWE. If the non-F traveller is a GCH/OWE, then everyone can get into GF but not CCR.

Thanks. That's what I always thought it was, but the above comment seemed to imply that the Club lounges had a more liberal guest policy than F lounges.

I have taken me and 2 children into First class lounge and I'm Gold all of us flying Economy to Italy. But I think I was let in rather than risking me kicking up a fuss.

She did say that I shouldn't be allowed to have two guests.

There is a kids room just past the first coffee machine in the dining area.

I am very respectfully of the children in first and we usually sit out on the terrace if they don't want to be in the kids room so we are not disturbing everyone else.

I did this twice. On each occasion I asked if I could go in and then come out and my wife go in while I look after my daughter. The BA lady suggested why don't we all go in together.

I've been in a similar situation before and simply went to GF and was honest to the BA Staff who allowed my daughter (aged 7) access as a second guest. I would never dream of trying to bend the rules for a second adult guest, but in my experience, particularly where the lounge is not busy, the staff will exercise some discretion for a well behaved child on the basis that both parents are 'entitled'
