I expected (or hoped) to be able to put together a review of the new Aspire Airport Lounge in Heathrow Terminal 5 on this page after my news piece about this brand new Aspire Heathrow lounge.
I travelled through Heathrow Terminal 5 yesterday (8 July 2015) on my way to Monaco, but alas was told the lounge was not going to be opened for at least another month. So it looks like this lounge is still a little way off.
Previously, Heathrow’s Terminal 5 has been one to avoid for me as I can only get access to the Galleries Club Lounge in Terminal 5 which I reviewed here, if I book Club fares due to my lowly British Airways status. If you have a higher BA Status you can also get access to Galleries First in Heathrow. As I don’t have status, have debated on whether the cost of Club Europe on British Airways is worth it, just to snag me lounge access (I concluded no!).
UPDATE: The new lounge “Aspire, the Lounge and Spa at LHR T5” opened today (4th August 2015).
Read my latest review of the Aspire Priority Pass Lounge at LHR T5 and I have added press photos to this article which can be scrolled through below. Certainly, I will be planning many more trips out of Heathrow Terminal 5 as a result of this lounge.
