BA lounges : COVID-19 closures and reopenings

List of Lounges Currently OPEN to BA Passengers (open wiki for details)

This wiki includes details of open lounges accessible to premium (F/J or Gold/Silver) passengers travelling on BA operated services, either within the terminal BA depart from or accessible via airside transfer.

Other lounges may be accessible for passengers willing to transfer landside to other terminals or concourses, although this is generally not recommended due to time constraints as a result of needing to re-clear security. Additionally, some airports may offer pay-in lounges which are not otherwise accessible by BA premium passengers (either temporarily or permanently).

Most open lounges are operating with a limited food and beverage service, and other services may be unavailable or modified.

For opening hours, please check the oneworld lounge listing at https://www.oneworld.com/airport-lounges?location= which is now being regularly updated.

If your airport isn't listed below, this probably means there is no lounge available for BA premium passengers (either temporarily or permanently) - please check the oneworld listing for the most up-to-date information.

In the EDI Lounge this morning on my way to LHR and onto Nuremberg.

First time without masks at EDI it was great !!

Strangely food is still attended service at EDI but everything else is help yourself - not very busy.

Writing this from T3 First/Galleries Lounge - Champagne and Wine help yourself but food is still to be ordered apart from a few muffins, biscuits and crisps knocking about.

Again quiet and it was good that Fast Track Security is open at T3.

At least they've got their priorities right. I'd just have to make do with the champagne then...

Does anyone know if the AA lounge is extending its hours? OW site shows it as closing daily at 15.00 and other OW lounges limit usage to specific (non-BA) airlines.

If you are on the BA274 then yes, The Club at LAS has recently reopened. It is located opposite gate E2.

Love to tell everyone what The Albert Durer Lounge is like at Nuremberg.

Unfortunately it closes at 1900 before the BA Check In for the 2115 to LHR opens - what's that all about ?

You can't check in online for BA flights and there are no machines - just the desks - "Vorsprung Durch Technic" ?????

No Benson & Hedges in the Duty Free either !!!

Only saving grace there is a smoking area post-security.

In there now and it's pretty busy. Not a huge number of seats available with power sockets nearby, so if you need that you may end up perched on the 'business' bar at the front. Drinks are served by staff - both white wines are horrible but two types of champagne available, served in wine glasses though. Food selection rather poor (in fact looking around I can't actually see anyone eating any of it). Interestingly the reception desk was willing for me to guest a travel companion on the VS flight, but turns out they had their own access anyway. You can buy a day pass for about $45.

I find it a very poor and overcrowded lounge, I usually arrive at LAS as late as possible and wait at the gate.

Thanks for the replies.

Are any of the alternatives better than the BA "First Wing" in T3 ?
