What can I expect from Club Europe in July 2020?

I'm hopefully flying to Greece next week, in Club Europe, both ways.
Is the lounge open in Heathrow, and is it still the 1st class one?
What about fast track security etc?

How does one drink lots of champagne whilst wearing a mask?

Will every row in the plane be utilised? Excited to fly for the first time since March

I'm sure others who are more learned will fill you in with more detail but yes, there is a lounge area open for J pax. Don't think fast track security is open, I've seen reports commenting on both how eerily empty the terminals have been but also heard that sometimes there are huge security lines.

There will be a full bar yes and from what I've heard, CE seating continues the same as before. And how about a curly straw that passes under your facemask to drink your champagne with?

Safe travels, enjoy Greece!

In T5, Galleries Club (generally mornings only) and Galleries First lounges are open, so unless you have access to GF via status, which one you use will depend on the time of day and whether GC is open. Lots of info in this thread

Normal fast track security is not yet open, but perhaps would be by the time you fly. The First Wing is open for those eligible.

You can remove your mask onboard, when seated, for the purpose of consuming food and drink, champagne will be available.

If the flight is heavily sold, all the seats/rows needed will be used.
