Some good news from British Airways for a change. Yesterday, the company officially announced the new First Class, Gold Executive Club and oneworld Emerald access route at Heathrow Terminal 5.

‘The First Wing’ is being built in the area behind the current First Class check in area. It will create a dedicated walkway from check-in to the lounges.
This will include a larger private check-in area and two dedicated security lanes.
Once you have passed through security, you will have immediate access to the Galleries First lounge or The Concorde Room without having to weave your way past Harrods, down the escalators, past all the shops and back up the escalators …..
It isn’t entirely clear what will change to make way for this. There was talk of the Galleries First business centre and champagne bar disappearing but that is definitely not certain.
The First Wing is due to open in April 2017.
