My review of the new Club Aspire lounge in Heathrow Terminal 3

This is my review of the new Club Aspire lounge in Heathrow Terminal 3. Most of the excitement in the airport lounge world this month has been over the excellent new Cathay Pacific First and Business Class lounges in Heathrow Terminal 3.  Here is our […]

The new Cathay Pacific lounges at Heathrow Terminal 3 reviewed

It took one year, but Heathrow Terminal 3 has finally got its new alternative to the British Airways lounges.  And it was worth the wait. Last November the old Cathay Pacific lounge closed for expansion and refurbishment, growing into the space which used to be occupied by […]

My review of City Airport’s new First Class Lounge – get driven to your plane!

Last week I flew to Amsterdam with CityJet and got to check out the First Class Lounge at London City Airport. Yes, London City Airport DOES have a lounge but not many people are aware of it as it only opened this year and isn’t in […]

Review of No 1 Lounge Gatwick South

It is now just over four months until the big terminal switch at Gatwick.  On 25th January 2017, British Airways will move overnight from the North Terminal to the South Terminal.  easyJet will move across to the North Terminal, consolidating their entire operation under one […]

My review of Terminal 5’s new Priority Pass arrivals lounge, Club Millesime

This is my review of Club Millesime, the new Priority Pass at Heathrow Terminal 5 inside the Sofitel hotel. I had a rather surprising arrival from Geneva on Friday.  The plane landed 10 minutes early, parked at an A gate and there was no queue […]

My review of the Virgin Clubhouse at London Heathrow Terminal 3 (part 1)

This is my review of the Virgin Clubhouse lounge in London Heathrow Terminal 3. Confession time.  The last time I flew Virgin Atlantic Upper Class was 1997 when I was in Johannesburg working on the financing of a toll road.  That is a bit of […]

My review of the British Airways arrivals lounge in Heathrow Terminal 5

This is my review of the British Airways arrivals lounge in Heathrow Terminal 5. It had been a long time since I visited the BA arrivals lounge – certainly longer than the four years I have been running this site.  When we travel as a […]

My day out at London Southend Airport!

Back in the 1960s, apparently, Southend was London’s official ‘third airport’.  The growth of Stansted sidelined it until 2008 when it was purchased by the Stobart Group.  They have added a new terminal, a new control building, extended the runway and – most importantly – […]

First photos of Gatwick North Clubrooms for BA First and Gold passengers

If you are heading out of Gatwick on a British Airways flight in the near future, and have a Gold card or are travelling in First Class, there is some good news. The No 1 Traveller Clubrooms are now open. This means that – as […]

How I ended up in the hipster lounge – My Lounge at Gatwick North (and a look at BA’s Bordeaux lounge)

Did I say I wanted to have a bite in the lounge?  Well that is literally all I could have had anyway ….. The lounge situation at Gatwick’s North Terminal has been an issue ever since BA and easyJet started moving their flights around.  The […]

Why I still love the Qatar Airways lounge at Heathrow (and why I was there)

Last Tuesday I was back in the Qatar Airways Premium Lounge at Heathrow Terminal 4.  Last time I wrote about this I declared that it was “the classiest lounge at Heathrow” and I wanted to see if that was still the case.  I wasn’t disappointed. […]

Review of the newly refurbished Aspire lounge at Luton Airport

This is my review of the Aspire lounge at Luton Airport. Whilst Rob got to hang out in the Qatar Airways lounge at Heathrow this week (see the HFP Instagram feed), I found myself in Luton …. To be honest, Luton is one of my least […]
