AY at LHR / London Heathrow Moving to Terminal 5 on 14 Jul 2020 w/ BA, IB, AA

Apologies if this has been mentioned elsewhere, but as seen under "view details" on flight bookings made on Finnair's website, from 14 July 2020, AY flights will depart from Terminal 5 at London Heathrow until further notice. T5 is showing as the terminal for AY until the end of the current booking horizon i.e. through to June 2021. 14 July 2020 is one week after American Airlines make the move to T5 too to join BA and IB.

T5 is more natural for AY than T2

Similarly to AA, I believe this is a temporary move until T3 opens again (which can happen way before June 2021). Here's to hoping it will happen soon enough.

From the perspective that T2 is more pleasant than T5 I assume.

LHR run ok now, border open without quarantine. Well it would have been sketchy if idiots had been quarantines for 14 days at LHR areival lounge (nearby pub terrace)...

Maybe it would be the time to sample the BA T5 lounges, although I hear there is not much to sample.

Looks like AA's move to T5 isn't temporary. I sure hope AY will move back to T3...
