Transport : Airport Lounges

British Airways offers airport lounges around the world, but the best tend to be found at London Heathrow Terminals 3 & 5 and at Gatwick.

The iconic Concorde Room can be found at London Heathrow, and there are versions of the Concorde Room at other airports.

The Concorde Room is only available at London’s Heathrow Airport Terminal 5 and New York’s JFK Airport (with smaller, less extensive Concorde bars at Dubai Airport and Singapore Airport). These Airport 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).

Which Lounge is best? Well, it has to be the Concorde Room at Heathrow which offers iconic styling and a much more serene environment than the busy Galleries Lounges. The very best Airport Lounge in the world is probably the Qatar Airways amazing Al Safwa First Class Lounge in Doha’s new Hamad International Airport.

You will find all my British Airways lounge reviews below starting with those in Heathrow Terminal 5. The Concorde room & First Lounges for First passengers which are undoubtedly the best British Airways airport lounges in the world.
