AY Silver, BA flight from LHR and priority security

Newbie question.
I need to fly BA flight from LHR tomorrow morning. I知 AY silver at the moment. Regarding my understanding I知 eligible to use priority security?
How to actually do that? My BA boarding pass is not showing priority. My silver card is at home in Espoo. Is it enough if I show AY mobile app with silver status?
Thanks!

On BA metal you will get priority security at LHR with One World Sapphire or One World Emerald. You can take a +1 as well, and it should automatically be on your boarding pass but if not just show your mobile phone. The staff are very used to one world statuses.

AY Silver priority security only applies to AY flights in general. As AY silver is Oneworld Ruby, it is not eligible for the general one world priority security perk. I think that strictly according to rules only Oneworld Emerald(Plat with AY) is entitled to priority security on any member airline where available, but this is often extended to Oneworld Sapphire(Gold with AY) aswell.

So I do not believe you can access priority security. However, you can use business class check-in.

BA812 is to CPH, thus T5.

There was no reason to be worried about not making it. Non-priority security worked extremely well.
Now I知 hanging at Terminal 5 around C-gates. It will take still 20 minutes to show gate info.

It seems that instead of waking up 4:00 I could have slept easily 30 minutes more. Well.. better to be early than late.

Trains break down / are late etc. South / North security loads can drastically change. I think you did the only right move by taking the earliest train.
When you reach Gold you'll probably stay at an LHR hotel like the rest of us
