Rules of play
The Rules are below, the main one being. Please, only one photo at a time until we have a confirmed correct answer. It makes it much easier to keep track of.
  1. Take an obscure photo of a BA location you are currently in (or have visited recently)
  2. Post on this thread and add a clue (if you feel itís required)
    The goal is then to be the first person to correctly guess the location.
  3. The OP confirms who has the first correct guess
  4. The OP updates the win to the Wiki
    If the winner has not won before, their name is entered and the post date/time they won is added below. If the winner has won before, the date and time of the post they won is added below their name.
    USER NAME
    Location guessed, Photo post #, time guessed in.
    Location guessed, Photo post #, time guessed in.
    Location guessed, Photo post #, time guessed in.
    etc. etc
  5. To try and keep it further within the remit of the forum, I think double points should be awarded in the event that the OP can get a BA logo into the photo without giving the game away.
  6. Multiple guesses are allowed, but must be turn about with other members and at least 10 mins apart
  7. Please try and keep it to one live photo at a time.

NUE perhaps?

(Though maybe the Audi cushion is a red herring…)

It is not NRT nor is it FRA.

The rings are indeed Audi.

The chairs are as uncomfortable as they are peculiar But the place was generally nice and calm, and food was not bad.

I should add that it is a codeshare destination.

I did go with a flight that had a BA number, though I was booked on the native flight number.

SVX?

(Full disclosure: Recognized a couple of Dutch design items in the photo so expected the answer to be a regional airport in the Netherlands. However, Google throws up SVX which looks like someone spent a *lot* of money commissioning!)

It is indeed SVX, Yekaterinburg in full name. The lounge was a full advertising space for Audi. Very recently refurbished, and despite being only a domestic lounge, probably the best lounge I have been to in Russia. But thinking of DME and SVO, that says very little.

I thought the Audi pillow was enough to add some level of red herring to the picture.

From the land approach to this OneWorld destination.
Hope the photo is correctly sized since I'm doing it from my phone.

A mode of public transport at this Oneworld destination.

It certainly is, well done!! Iíll update the wiki.

I used the Manly ferry for my daily commute to work in the city many years ago and itís still a lovely way to travel.
