‘The First Wing’ officially opened at Terminal 5 an hour ago.
Here are a few pictures:
‘The First Wing’, at the far southern end of the terminal, leads directly directly into the Galleries First lounge via a private security lane. It can be used by ticketed First Class passengers or Gold card / oneworld equivalent cardholders – as long as they only have one guest. As it opens directly into the lounge, it has to follow lounge access rules. You can check in there with your family and then use the normal security lanes.
We will be at the official launch later this week so there will be another report on the way, although ironically we are banned from taking any pictures at that! Thanks to the reader who surreptitiously took these.
