British Airways replaces its dire Bordeaux airport lounge

British Airways now has access to a new lounge in Bordeaux.

Credit where credit is due.  British Airways has been making a serious effort over the last year to add extra lounges to its European network.

In Spring they added:

  • Innsbruck
  • Seville
  • Ibiza
  • Porto
  • Reykjavik

What I didn’t realise until this weekend – when a reader sent me the photograph below – is that British Airways is now allowing passengers to use the new airport-run lounge in Bordeaux.

The old lounge in Bordeaux was a joke. So bad, in fact, that at times BA would hand out airport refreshment vouchers rather than subject passengers to using it.  To call it a cupboard would be offensive to large, expensive cupboards.  Those days are over.

Our campaign continues though!  These airports have a lounge which BA won’t pay for but you can use a Priority Pass instead:

  • Lanzarote ACE
  • Catania/Fontanarossa CTA
  • Madeira FNC
  • Heraklion International Nikos Kazantzakis HER
  • Humberside HUY
  • Mykonos JMK
  • Olbia/Costa Smeralda OLB
  • Palermo/Punta Raisi PMO (landside)
  • Paphos International PFO
  • Thessaloniki Macedonia International SKG (as of 1st July 2017)
  • Split SPU
  • Rhodes – Diagoras International RHU
  • Tallinn TLL

These airports have a lounge which BA won’t pay for and which only accept cash, not Priority Pass / Lounge Club:

  • Brindisi/Casale BDS
  • Bari/Palese International BRI
  • Cagliari CAG
  • Dalaman International DLM
  • London City Airport LCY (in the Private Jet Terminal)

There are also a lot of European airports which simply do not have a Business Lounge, but you can’t blame BA for that ….
