To do this, after arriving into T5, follow the signs for Flight Connections All Terminals, then in the main hub area Flight Connections T3, which involves an escalator down to the buses. Do not go through T5 Flight Connections first, since it's troublesome to get out of airside. At T5B (not C) there is a direct bus link to T3 down one level from arrivals, one level up from the transits.

Thank you. Does this mean that I have to clear security at T3 and back at T5 to get back in for my flight?

Yes, security at T3, and then again at T5 for the onward flight (plus - presumably - your start airport too).

How does one leave T3 airside to go back to T5?

The CX lounge gets really busy within 2 hours of their flights, but outside those times it's like a library. The noodles are great, as is the general ambience IMO.

This has been my experience too.

After some noodles, I went to the BA GF for some higher quality champagne.

You simply walk back the way you came from Flight Connections, but it's not signposted, so a good memory is helpful. Otherwise ask for assistance from the customer service desks.

Currently sat in the CX Lounge with only 4 other passengers waiting for my flight to BIO having moved from Galleries Club which was overcrowded.
Sat with a Tsingtao and made to order Shrimp and Pork Wonton Noodles overlooking the runway. No contest in my opinion.

For anything except breakfast (because given connections I'm never there early enough), its a tie between AA F and CX F, AA a bit ahead given quality of ingredients. BA GF not even close-carb & stodgy.

What about the J lounges? Which one in T3 is the best?

I fully agree with this. With new BA flights being moved to T3, no CCR lounge at T3 and a lackluster T3 BA GF lounge, things are not looking good. I wonder how long CX and AA will accept the masses of BA pax coming into their lounges, after all it's BA's main hub.

Presumably there is some kind of renumeration on that.

Right now I'd take the one decent a la carte option in AA Flagship over anything at GF in T5 or T3. It's a pity it closes so soon.

I would be very happy if the quality of the food in GF reverted to the old state of play. Looking through a few photos I took over the years its basically LHR CCR food now :o.

I doubt it'll be masses. Most people just go to the lounge they are directed to use.

Personally I find the T3 GF perfectly adequate and usually use it in preference to the other lounges. But then again I rarely eat breakfast.

In the CX F lounge now; since the morning AY HEL flight left I've been literally the only person in here.

Best living room ever.

boutela Oct 30, 15 2:45 am

Of course no sooner do I say that than a second person walks in.

Might have to head over to GF now that this place is all crowded.

Totally agree. It's funny, in another thread someone complained that the AA masses were going to invade the BA T3 GF.

AA for showers and their new breakfasts (if they still have the eggs with avocado and sweet chillis)

BA for booze, including the best champagne. Probably the most food variety as well and the best coffee.

CX for noodles, view and quiet if it is a down time.

:D:D

There are times that CX lounge is completely deserted, and that is really nice. I got incredible amounts of work done in there earlier this year and the ladies working were so nice. The noodles are truly excellent as well.


All times are GMT -6. The time now is 12:45 pm.
