This gives the lounges options available for BA passengers departing from LHR T3. If you flight is departing from T3 you will not have access to the T5 lounges - including Concorde Room - since you must have a same-day T5 boarding pass to get airside in T5. If your flight is from T3, then you need to use the T3 lounges, your boarding pass will not work in T5. As it happens there is a good range of lounges available in T3, details below.

For breakfast options for BA Gold / Emerald / First travellers, there is a photo guide in post 291, click here. Note the Qantas lounge only opens at 08:00 hrs.

I'm only half joking when I say they probably reuse them and this is the reason why they are so hard

I have a flight out of T3 on November 3rd, which is probably going to be too early if it doesn't open right on November 1st!

Between the BA and Cathay lounges.

I tried to sneak a peak through the plywood lift-up hatch yesterday morning, but some spoilsport has put white plastic over the window.

I don't think this is correct - I'm there fairly regularly at 0630 and its open. perhaps that is weekends.

Yes, it is just Sunday when the CX lounge opens at 0730. I think every other day it opens around 0500-0530.

Back in February, over on the Qantas forum, Genius1 had posted a link which stated March 2017 as the proposed original opening date. That article, from the Australian Business Traveller, was subsequently updated in June and now includes this quote:

A source associated with the lounge's construction tells Australian Business Traveller that the project team is now targeting "late September, definitely October" as the opening date.
Not to worry. It is what it is.

Interesting, I was in the CX business lounge at the end of august, and thought it was great. The noodle and dim sum bar in particular, and moet on demand at the bar.

I'm back there at the end of November in F so hope the Qantas lounge is open to compare. I don't recall ever going to a Qantas lounge so don't really know what to expect. I'm a bit lazy so cant imagine myself going to 4 lounges to check them out, I think 2 is my max!

If you're flying in F, then you'd have 8 lounges to check out - all the business and all the first ones!

Just get to T3 in the morning for an evening flight, and move once an hour...
LPQ and LCSinTexas like this.

I'm flying to Vegas tomorrow for the big fight so will do a Lounge trawl. Haven't done that for years as normally flying either on business or with kids.

Heathrow Club World Lounge Access

It will be our first time flying Club World from Heathrow T3 to Miami in November. We have a U class ticket (we upgraded from WTP using POUG). I am a bit confused about what lounges we can access. Is it just the BA Club lounge or can I get access to other One World lounges at Terminal 3 & Miami?

Flying in Club World, you can access all OW business class lounges at T3.

Currently, most people here would recommend the Cathay Pacific Business Class lounge as the best of the lot.

Thanks for this information. From what I have been reading online the Cathay lounge puts the BA offering to shame?
