Fast Track Security is generally offered by BA for passengers travelling in First, Club World, Club Europe and Business UK and Gold/oneworld Emerald (+1 guest) and Silver/oneworld Sapphire (+1 guest) members. This is a published benefit at LHR, LGW and JFK, but in practice is experienced as below.

Priority Boarding (previously called Fast Track Boarding) should be offered by BA for passengers travelling in First, Club World, Club Europe and Business UK and Gold/oneworld Emerald, Silver/oneworld Sapphire and Bronze/oneworld Ruby members.

Regarding Madrid, BA is apparently too cheap to pay for Silver elites who fly on IB metal using BA codeshare to get fast track security. It's only when you are on BA metal or a BA Gold (thus OW Emerald) that you get it.

It's an absolutely fantastic touch. Although arriving was a bit scary, when the purser approached me and told me that I would be met from the aircraft. Given that F was 12/14 and nobody else got this message, it did panic me.

The arrivals lady was ruthlessly efficient and on the ball all the way to the taxi rank. The outbound lady was possibly the warmest and friendliest member of airport staff I've ever encountered worldwide. Apart from that lovely lady behind the desk at the LAX FL maybe.

I'm reassured that this is for GGL in both J and F at DXB, it's a brilliant feature and the first genuine GGL recognition I've had on the ground. Even at LUX, I struggle to be plane seat to cab seat in under 5 mins.

You have IAD as a 'no' for security. In my experience, that's a 'yes', but only for those flying Club World/First. There's no access based on status. In practice it only works for the first of a two-stage check but when the lines are long it's that first stage that involves the most waiting.

Security: Yes
Boarding: Called, but you know how CH is, it was like a ski lift line!

Strangely enough, it was from the same gate my last flight with Swiss left from.

I'm only going on L-o-M's assertion, and it's reassuring, as any business trips would ordinarily be in J rather than F.

Funny you should say you were worried because when I was told that SS would meet me I assumed it meant that BA had lost my luggage so when I got off the plane and realised it was an airside escort service I was mightily relieved

I know others have had this in F and in H not sure if it extends to GGLs in W and Y.

I am surprised nobody brought up the worst of them all (considering that BA manages/outsources 100% of it): LHR T5 connections!



Then there’s not actually a premium security lane, but rather being in the Fast Track lane just theoretically gets you into the actual security lane faster than the others. Once in the security lane I had to queue for another 20 minutes.
Anyway, Heathrow is an airport best avoided, and I think British Airways’ ground services at Heathrow leave a lot to be desired.

It's difficult to argue with that photo, but I'm going to try: I use T5 Flight Connections multiple times each week, I've never seen a queue anywhere near that length. Two people is more realistic. T5 is not a bad place to transfer.

I should think you would be! I wish more airports would offer this 'enhanced' service.

It can be condensed, eg. assume boarding is everywhere and just note the exceptions such as LCY. But maybe we think about it, or someone edits just the first big post (like EU261).
Some Excel magic worked:
