Lounge access Gatwick

I understand BA are currently operating out of the North terminal. I understand they are using the aspire lounge. Has anyone been through it yet, is it bog standard aspire or have BA made any enhancements. Just wondering as I don't recall the lounge being that great and may cut my losses and book no1 clubrooms

You do realise on here that an "enhancement" of anything BA means a reduction to that previously. If you were disappointed with bog standard Aspire anyway and BA have enhanced it you could safely assume it will now be worse

Clubrooms still closed Iím afraid. Aspire and (from tomorrow) the main No.1 Lounge are the only lounges open at LGW.

Aspire very average. Hoping that the No1 lounge will be better...

From my experience they seemed to just be allowing ba travellers in the lounge ie. no PP etc. and they were turning away people on my way in there. Other than that fairly standard and as I think I read on the lounge thread, they are doing wrapped bacon / sausage rolls, few pastries etc but pretty basic. Cleaning routine was good but they didnít repleanish stuff quickly, I had to ask for cups and knives whilst I was there.
