My Lounge, the ‘hipster’ offshoot of No 1 Lounges, opened at London Gatwick’s South Terminal this week as we wrote here. Reader reports so far are that it is refusing Priority Pass and Lounge Club guests, even though the lounge website here clearly states that they are accepted (EDIT: the website has now been upgraded to confirm that only DragonPass is accepted).
If you are heading to Gatwick South over Christmas, this new Virgin Atlantic deal is a good value way of getting in. For bookings made by 31st January, you will earn double Virgin Flying Club miles and get a discount on the list price.
The Virgin Flying Club member prices are:
- £35 – The House (Heathrow T4)
- £35 – Clubrooms
- £25 – No1 Lounges
- £15 – My Lounge
…. and the miles you currently earn are:
- 800 miles at The House (usually 400)
- 800 miles at Clubrooms (usually 400)
- 700 miles at No1 Lounges (usually 350)
- 400 miles at My Lounge (usually 200)
This is very good value for the new My Lounge. As the website shows, My Lounge Gatwick South costs £30 on the door and £24 if you book in advance, which includes Fast Track Security. Via this link, you would only pay £15 per person and you would get 400 Virgin Flying Club miles.
You can book the Virgin offer via this link. As the miles are earned per booking, you should make separate bookings for each adult in your group.
