British Airways Galleries lounge, Boston Logan, Terminal E: Very good!

After a week’s stay in Boston, where we stayed at the Langham, a hotel we already know from previous stays, we had to get to the airport for – and this is a first for me – a transatlantic day flight!

As a reminder, here is the itinerary followed:

Today’s itinerary

Check-In and ground experience

After returning our car to Hertz (always super-easy in the US), we take the shuttle bus to Terminal E, from where British Airways departs for Boston Logan.

Check-in is deserted, and the station manager will handle the check-in formalities for us. Everything is dispatched within minutes, my wife’s Trusted Traveller number is added to the booking and we are checked-in very quickly, after being reminded of the directions to the lounge.

Security will also be very fast.

Location and welcome

The lounge is located on the mezzanine between gates E11 and E16. It is close to the Lufthansa and Emirates lounges.

The welcome is charming and we are invited into the lounge after checking our boarding passes.

Lounge design

The lounge is quite elegant. While the tones are similar to the British airline’s lounges at their Heathrow hub, the whole is much less “worn out”, in a better state of maintenance.

Numerous types of space are available: lounging, catering, resting or working.

The tones are very nice and the Christmas decoration is a nice touch.

Catering

The food and beverage offer is of excellent quality for a North American lounge. When we visited, it was obviously the breakfast offer that was on offer, with scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages and hot hash browns, and a varied cold selection with cold meats, cheeses, fresh-cut fruit and yoghurts.

All types of toast and bread are also available.

Bottom line

A high-quality lounge, very solid in Boston. And boarding from the lounge is much appreciated.
