In this review, I compare British Airways First Class airport lounges including the iconic Concorde Rooms. I have flown BA many times and I have also reviewed my British Airways long-haul First Class flights.
The Concorde Room is only available at London’s Heathrow Airport in Terminal 5 and New York’s JFK Airport (with smaller, less extensive Concorde bars at Dubai Airport and Singapore Airport). These lounges can only be accessed if you’re flying First Class on an airline in the Oneworld alliance (one guest is welcome as well), or if you hold a Concorde Room card, given out for earning 5,000 tier points in a year.
British Airways also offers an exclusive First lounge at Heathrow and only a First Lounge at Gatwick (there is no Concorde Room at Gatwick).
The British Airways First lounge and Concorde Room at Terminal 5 share an Elemis Travel Spa, which is pretty good. While the free treatments are quick, at 15 minutes in length, they are top shelf, plus it is something else to do to break up the trip. If you are travelling in First you can get priority booking online for these Spa facilities.
