Two days ago we wrote about the new British Airways lounge at Boston Logan Airport.
Reader Angel flew out of Boston yesterday and kindly sent us a few photographs and some text, and reader Ryan also sent a couple. Here is what Angel said about the new lounge – you can see the corridor decked in balloons for the opening here: (click on any photo to enlarge)
‘Generally, the new lounge is much better than the old dark lounge.
It has got a lot of open space and natural light, overlooking the airfield. There’s a main dining area and a little separate area for First Class passengers (they call it the Concorde Dining Area) where you get served by someone but I don’t think there is an a la carte menu.
There is a bar area where you get served cocktails, wine and spirits. There is no self service apart from beer and wine.
The biggest disappointment is that they no longer serve champagne – it is only prosecco now. However, being able to board directly from the lounge (via the doors in the photo below) is a big plus.’
Thank you to Angel and Ryan for the photos and words.
