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?

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

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!

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!
