T5 [operations and facilities on strike days]

So, what to expect tomorrow in T5 flying to Cairo on Air Belgium?

Gold Wing?
Fast Track?
Retail open?
Sedan Chairs from car park?

With only 2 BA flights operating (plus a few IB) I think every security lane will be fast track! We’re relying on you to report back to us

You might even be able to get a spa appointment

Please report back. I'm interested in what will be open tomorrow. You could be the only person in Wetherspoons.

Must have changed. It was confirmed last week that F Wing would be open as normal.

Do they check for size when you enter the lounge these days?

Just Cairo and Tokyo look to be the BA-operated flights from T5 today.

Those franchise shops in T5 must be really angry about the lost revenue. It is unlikely that BAA reduces the high rent for those strike days.

I thought it was rent free and BAA just took a share of the earnings?
