This is our review of the British Airways business class lounge at Glasgow Airport.
A couple of weeks ago I had to travel to Glasgow and took the opportunity to check out both lounges in the airport. My review of the Upperdeck Lounge will follow later. Today I want to review the British Airways lounge.
Let me start by saying that I was impressed by this facility. It is not huge – the Upperdeck lounge reviewed here is larger and brighter – but the designers have done a great job in creating a lounge with a number of distinct zones to suit whatever mood you are in.
The new lounge opened in 2013 and has a capacity of 150, double that of the previous lounge. It is situated down by the British Airways gates, whereas the Upperdeck lounge is situated above the shopping and dining area.

The two food islands are the focal point. I was there over lunch and it was the typical BA sandwich fare.
At the back is the work area where I spent most of my time. Behind that are a number of sofas and large comfy chairs.
If you want to sit with your partner, there are a number of tables for two along one wall:
Here is the drink selection which was impressively comprehensive. I was told that the lounge used to have a selection of rare whiskies in the evenings but that it has now been pared back.
And if you want a hot drink:
And some more of the seating:
Because of the time I was there, I can’t comment on what you might find over breakfast or dinner and whether it is better than the restaurants in the central area. I thought it was an attractive, well laid out space and the perfect place to while away an hour before a flight.
