Arrow BA Lounge Database | United Kingdom




i Preface
Welcome to the UK edition of the BA Lounge Database. This thread contains details of all the lounges currently available to BA passengers with the UK, and surrounding islands. Each lounge card contains basic reference information plus a background image, carefully selected to provide you with a flavour of what's in store at each location. Links to comprehensive member reviews, pictorial, and discussion threads pertaining to individual lounges will be added in due course.

If you typically use a mobile app to browse the site, you will instantly notice a sub-optimal presentation. This thread does happen to be image intensive and I make no apologies for this. So using a standard web browser is definitely recommended.

Please note while best efforts are taken to keep abreast of the opening hours listed in this thread (and on the oneworld lounge site), lounge opening times are subject to routine changes. At outstations, the hours of opening at BA operated lounges are reliably adjusted to align with BA’s flight schedules.

For full information on lounge access eligibility, we have a separate thread covering that: http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/briti...uidelines.html. All the information you need is contained there.

ii Index
The database is organised in alphabetical order by country, then city. Please follow the section links below:

Thank-you to all who have assisted with this project over the past months and years even. While the re-construction of the lounge database continues, I am pleased to be able to launch this section, which as you can see synchronises nicely with the new routes BA is launching in December.

While this is largely intended as a reference thread, I'd like to encourage the discussion, joy, and criticism of particular lounges, so please do feel free to join the existing thread discussions or start a new thread if none currently exist. The images are brighter than before and the text is larger. Also the lounge cards are a fraction of their previous size and now much less demanding on bandwidth, which I know many of us will appreciate especially when accessing the information on the move.

If you have any comments relating to the information displayed in the lounge cards within this section, please add your comments here.

T5 Galleries First has a 'First Terrace' rather than 'Club Terrace'.

T5 Galleries Club South doesn't have a terrace.

Glad to see the noodles in the CX lounges at T3 mentioned

It's pretty much the only positive aspect of T3

BHD is not the Harbour Airport

The Airport is called:
George Best Belfast City Airport

it is located in the Harbour estate.

There are no toilets in the lounge. They are in an adjacent corridor.

I will do a champagne enquiry for you shortly, purely for research you understand

Good thread, thanks

would it be worth mentioning the Starbucks voucher for T5C? (not so much different from what is listed for SZG)

and being pedantic: GF in T5 should read "coffeehouses" the offer on route to the dining section is the same as on the other side, isn't it?

BA Lounge Database | United Kingdom

What amazing info! Thank you to those that put so much time into this. It's very helpful and I don't underestimate the effort involved in pulling this together.

Just one point - the old bmi lounge at EDI, this has been closed for some time now hasn't it? I'm currently in EDI and struggling to find a seat in the BA lounge. I swung by the old bmi lounge and it's in darkness, as it has been for my previous 3 or 4 visits?

I'm in GIB next week, so I'll try to take photos and let you know any updates! Will also be in AA F, CX F and BA F lounges in T3 - anything you need me to check up on while I'm there and report back? Happy to contribute!

The coffee machines on the way to the main food buffet are part of the First Refectory.

The coffee machines on the way to the Champagne Bar is the Coffee House.
