As my flight leaves at the end of the day,I arrive about 3 hours ahead of schedule and head to the check-in area as indicated on the boarding pass and not Gold, which forces me to ask the attendant to accompany me to the checkpoint in order to enter. It will be done with courtesy, but I am getting seriously annoyed with this situation.
As a reminder, here is the itinerary followed:
The lounge is located in the southern part of Heathrow, and is accessible directly through dedicated security.
The design of the lounge is nothing special: it is almost equivalent to its Business cousin located one floor up: in fairly neutral tones, with fairly comfortable furniture. It is also quite bright. I set myself up to work for just under two hours.
The lounge’s catering offer is very comprehensive. Ordering by QR code/smartphone and service at the seat is still possible, but the buffets have also returned.
In short, a very solid experience. I will drinka few glasses of champagne and the excellent Bordeauxbefore reaching my boarding gate.
A very good lounge. It’s far from the experience of an AF La Première lounge, for example, but for an accessible lounge with a status, it’s not bad at all.
