Reader Justin sent me a photo of the Fast Track lane at Nice Terminal 1 which is a relatively new development over the last year or so.
As you can see, despite the heavy Club Europe loads on flights to Nice, the signs imply that British Airways has chosen not to pay the airport to let BA passengers use Fast Track. A quick dig around online confirmed that this was the case.
Over the last year British Airways has been signing a few lounge access deals in airports where there was a lounge but they had previously refused to pay for it. It would be good if this could be extended to Fast Track security access too.
