GLA lounge closed 2 Sep. 2017, one day only



Anyone HBO should try check in first, I would suggest and unfortunately I don't know the value of the voucher. There is a Priority Pass lounge in GLA.

I'll ask on my way back in to the terminal. Thought for a second you may have been here and would have met FT Royalty 😬😬.

This may be an upset for some. 5.00 voucher for all eligible tiers/class except Prem Card holders. Didn't give me a value for them. Guests will also be eligible for a 5 voucher.

Any company that values its customers would surely do this work overnight, rather than close a key part of the premium customer experience for the day? But I guess this is BA we are talking about!

I guess Saturdays are probably one of the quieter days for the lounge, but still ...

Overnight work is expensive.

Plus they might actually be starting when the lounge closes on the 1st and work until early on the 3rd.

The local's can't even get a bottle of Buckfast for that!

But it's the same as Aberdeen passengers get during the months of lounge closure.

It's an insult, really.

If they need more time, just do it in two overnight phases. I appreciate that it is more expensive, but it just sums up BA's current attitude towards its highest value customers.

More or less what one of the check in agents who had overheard me asking when we were going up the escalator from check in said.

A group of us are on the last flight down on Friday night, so hopefully they won't close it early as we're counting on relaxing in the lounge.
