Question Recent T5 CCR entry success while transit from F>CE?

I know I asked this question before but I was wondering what the current success and consistancy on gaining T5 CCR access when arriving at LHR in International FC and transiting to CE? A few months ago it was hit and miss... has a consistant policy been put into place?

We are flying BA in a couple weeks and my only hope to experience the T5 CCR would be our arrival since our transatlantic segments arrive and depart T4 and I think the T4 CCR is closed (or will be when we depart).

Thanks.

Every lounge entry desk file contains a note re the access policy for inbound prem cabins. There should be no issue and the policy as stated on OW stands.

I had absolutely no problem gaining access to the CCR last week transiting F > UK Dom; staff were delightful and the Dining Room seems to be operating so much more slickly too.

In fact, the overall levels of service were superb.

I can confirm the same for my wife and me last Friday - no problems getting access to the CCR room or the First lounge.

I had no problems in late May going F -> CE, and it was an overnight connection.

No issues on Friday.

I was asked if I wanted a drink or food by four separate members of staff inside the first five minutes.

Any issues if you're connecting from a flight at LGW?

I'm with a group of 4 travelling in F from ATL-LGW, then we're schlepping our way to LHR for LHR-BRU in CE.

I was assuming that we'd have Concorde Room access based upon the F boarding pass for ATL-LGW.

I guess we'll find out next week, but I'm just curious ... just because we arrived in LGW that morning shouldn't make a difference, should it?

The rule is that you're allowed if you're flying any BA F sectors that day, regardless of start/end point.

So if you're flying LHR-BAH in Y and BAH-DOH in F, you can use the CR

Not LGW I know but I landed at T4 this morning at 07:00 from BOM in F. I worked all day in the office and I gained access to the T5 CCR just now (some 8 hours later) for my domestic connecting flight and was able to use the "secret" door

It is lovely and peaceful in here although it seems they are still having air conditioning problems in some areas, the boardroom for example is like a sauna
