Now it’s time to go home… And to rest, just before departure, in the American Airlines lounge used by British Airways in terminal 2AC.
As a reminder, here is the itinerary followed:
Check-In and ground experience
I checked-in for my flight to London a little less than 24 hours before my departure. It is with my Passbook card that I go to the immigration controls of the building connecting terminals 2A and 2C via the escalators.
But then… It’s the drama: all passport controls are congested, including the “Access n1” priority control.
It is thus towards the PARAFES controls, less busy, that I am heading. The security will be deserted and the whole thing will take me 10 minutes, far from the 90 minutes announced on the control screens.
Location and welcome
After these controls, I use the escalators to go up to the boarding floor, then follow the “Lounges” signs to get to the American Airlines lounge
The reception is very courteous, and I am told that the lounge closes at 3:30 pm, and that I should finish my wait at the gate. I already knew that but I see the reception staff sorry.
The lounge design is quite successful, in the vein of recent Admirals Club. The view on the tarmac is absolutely magnificent.
The toilets are of good quality and showers are available.
I arrive shortly after lunch time and the hot food offering is still in place and of high quality. I would choose the seafood pasta but there were many options available.
The wines are really awful but the spirits are very good.
A pleasant stay but unfortunately shortened due to the lounge closing one hour before my flight.
