Good news ^ I'm glad BA is taking action on lack of lounge access.

The flip side, however: we'll now get complaints as to the piss-poor nature of many of the third party euro lounges we were so desperate to get into!

Interesting that extremely premium heavy Mykonos and Santorini arenít getting anything. At Mykonos they could have arranged something with QR.
AC seems to love saving a few quid.
These destinations get plenty of Golds n Silvers behind the curtain.

Unless itís recently changed, rest assured that you wonít be missing out on anything other than the ability to liberate a small plastic bottle of water

Anybody have any info as to when the lounge at Dalaman may be opening? The previous notification states the lounges will be open for customers travelling throughout summer 2019 and summer officially starts next week.

or at JMK, no voucher either. I must say in a way I'm more puzzled by what determines why BA chooses to give vouchers in some places it offers no lounges but not in others.

JMK is getting 3 flights on Saturday and Sunday this summer peak, thatís a good saving on vouchers for AC.

Is there anywhere to spend a voucher at JMK? Although I suppose a coffee from the takeaway counter might be better than nothing.

yep, a cafť. do fresh squeezed juice, a frappe or an elleniko. Paid for mine, no issue, but as ggl flying c I don't think it would have been abnormal for ba to offer.

Same here!

And I can guarantee that the April to September LGW-BRI service can get quite premium heavy - I have been in 13 rows CE cabins.
A few BA Prems are regulars on the route too (won't mention names)
