Question Alcohol and lounges

Hello all
Returning seafarer and after long voyage with no port calls can safely say myself and rest of the small crew are virus free.
Have to travel through AMS and LHR in order to get home.
Does anyone know if BA are serving Alcohol in CE or any of their lounges at the moment?
Thanks

I believe its a biscuit in Band 1+2 oh and for the lucky pax in Band 3+4 you get a biscuit AND a bag of pretzels.

Small bottle of water as well for your trouble.

BA really excelling themselves on the catering front.

Yes, in regards to the original topic here, it seems BA is pretending alcohol isn't available in the UK, despite all evidence to the contrary.

I find it a little odd that the OP's only apparent concern regarding taking several flights and travelling through two major hubs in the age of social isolation from a potentially fatal virus is whether he can get a drink.

Well, the authorities do say to use alcohol to sanitise, so....

Therein lies the explanation, I should think!

Probably he has found a large number of sources to cover those issues

I don't know about AMS. But the only alcohol on the aircraft at the moment is isopropyl alcohol.

For LHR the only way I can see you getting alcohol, since there is zero provision airside, is to exit at LHR, go to M&S in arrivals which has its usual stock there. The usual restrictions on liquids apply so you need to consume on the spot, check any items into checked luggage or decant into 100ml containers.

More information in this forum's Covid-19 Dashboard.
