As we mentioned in our recent article, “What’s Happening At British Airways”, British Airways has revamped its flagship Concorde Room at Heathrow Terminal 5.
Inspired by the very best of British design, the refurbishment of the First Class lounge included re-upholstering the furniture, and the addition of some new feature pieces.
The room is illuminated by hand-blown glass lighting with bone linen shades and ochre silk linings.
The terrace, which is very popular with travellers thanks to its position overlooking the runway, has been updated with luxurious sofas and new elegant loungers.
The number of mobile phone chargers has been increased to ensure travellers’ devices are fully charged before they fly.
You will still be able to dine before your flight in private booths with a full waiter service. If you wish to unwind ahead of your flight, there are private cabanas with a day bed and en-suite available to book.
Next in the schedule for a revamp is British Airways’ lounge at New York’s JFK Terminal 7, along with improvements being made to the customer experience at check-in. Next year Aberdeen and Rome’s lounges will also be revamped, and Geneva will be expanded. Further investment is then planned in San Francisco, Johannesburg and Chicago and Heathrow’s other lounges will be refreshed over the next few years.
