Lounge access 'math' question

I can't do the sums or get my brain around this. I'm flying LHR/WAW later today in a group of six. I'm GGL and in business class and one colleague is Gold and also in business class. The other four are in coach, one of whom is BA silver (and Alaska gold). Can all six of us get into a lounge?

Are you all on the same flight?

Hi,

Yes. The GGL , Gold and Silver members can bring in 1 guest each.

The silver member and guest will only be able to use Galleries club ( business) whilst Golds can use the Galleries First or Club.

Regards

Where KARFA is going with his question is that if all on the same flight, OP can actually guest everyone into Galleries First by virtue of being GGL.

GGL now allowed 5 guests in GF + TFW (same flight only)

Although I recall a recent post where BA lounge agents played ignorance to this rule and rejected access to more than 1 guest. So I would recommend being prepared to call the GGL line on the day with a view to them providing ‘on the job training’ to a lounge agent that may try and turn you all away from the F Lounge.

We are on the same flight - and I'd forgotten about the new GGL perk. Which worked fine this time - we all marched through the First Wing and enjoyed the First lounge. Thank you all.
