Covid-19 : BA network lounge closures, effective 17 March
 
From 17 March to further notice South complex only
club lounges at T5A North and T5B closed

Thanks for that, it was inevitable at some point. My understanding is that CCR and Flounge continue to be open, and no changes at T3 or LGW.

Thanks.

Will north security be open, or just south security and TFW?

not sure on security but would be surprised to be honest

Wouldn't this be a good opportunity to do the lounge refurbishments and deep clean/renovation of the showers?

Should close them all
and just keep the CCR Open 😉 for everyone and drop the entry requirements to silver and above

That would cost money and I would imagine BA won't spend on what are in effect non essentials at the present.

Also hard just to turn on the tap for workers doing either of those activities.

T5 north today
 
Lovely and quiet. Or sense of impending doom depending on your outlook.

No changes at T3 or LGW to date, or any of the UK regions for that matter. With MAN switching terminals in the near future I wouldn't be surprised if something gives there at some point soon.

The BA lounge in Brussels was also closed on Saturday, until the 3rd of April. (for Now)
Instead we could use the Diamond lounge, which was nice!

Nice to see Galleries Club North has received some of the new-style furniture.

I was there yesterday... never seem both lounges so quite. sad

Iím just here in T5. I can confirm that both north and south security open. First Wing security is open I was the only one going through however an older couple was taking their time to put things back in their bags. First class lounge quite empty. CCR not busy at all. I havenít checked the business class upstairs.
interesting fact that as it should be the busy period both scanner lane were open in the First Wing. I would thought one would be closed.

Heathrow Express running short trains as well. Not many people using it though. The two trains Iíve seen both had configured business first in the Paddington end.

Yes I thought so too. How new is it? Normally far too busy to contemplate the terrace so no idea how long it has actually been there!

Not sure, I haven't been in a Club lounge in T5A for some time - although if BA don't grant status extensions I may well find myself there this year!
