It was just self serve champagne when I was there in September, but I suspected those days were numbered.

But, if theres now self serve Prosecco, as well as champagne on request, then thats an improvement, I guess

Out in the bars, it was definitely Prosecco this morning.

Nowhere is there any signage or hint that (real) Champagne is available on request, so as previously it could just be on a 'need to know basis' but I also suspect that you could get fobbed off with some Prosecco (or whatever is in the open bars) in which case it needs to be drowned in orange juice.

Sorry, I'm not a Prosecco fan on the whole but I accept it is quite popular.

As you say, I think it has been always 'on request' for the past several years or more, apart from a few times, for one reason or the other.

If in doubt, I would always ask anyway. I don't like either, really, but plenty others do.

I was surprised to find that Galleries North didn't have Tanqueray 10, but the satellite lounge does. Don't know if that's intentional or not (I never normally go to the main lounges, they're too crowded).

It is BA, do not analyse to hard

My assumption is T5B is more CW/Long Haul and T5N is more domestic / CE

I've typically seen self pour Champagne in the T5B satelite as well when it has been 'on request' in galleries North / South.

My guess has always been that this serves the F passengers who move over to the satellites early and that the ratio of LH F and J passengers to silver card holders on HBO euro fares is skewed in favour of just letting them self pour.

Could very well be the case. It used to be that the staff at the entrance to the satellite lounge would tell me that I had access to the Flounge / say that my flight wouldn't be leaving from B / C... but I don't recall them doing that for some time now.

I had a very bad experience at the B gate lounge last March and was told that my QR flight had been cancelled and that I needed to get back to the A gates and get rebooked. It was showing a C gate number on my app and on various other websites. When I disagreed and said that it was still showing said that I would go to the C gates the staff got really quite unpleasant! In the end I went to the C gates panicking as it was getting quite late and caught my flight and the QR crew were horrifiednot a good start to a holiday in Sri Lanka

Prosecco and the ros version on self serve in both South and B GC yesterday, I think there is a Bottega promotion on, plenty of bottles. Champagne on request I have seen champagne on self pour recently in B.
