British Airways is offering free lounge access for Armed Forces Day which is tomorrow, Saturday 29th June.
To celebrate, and as part of the BA100 celebrations, all military personnel travelling through Heathrow tomorrow will be entitled to Galleries Club lounge access. This is irrespective of their class of travel. You can also bring in anyone travelling with you.
You MUST show a MOD90 card at any of the four Galleries Club lounges to gain access. If your Heathrow T5 flight is off the B or C satellite you should choose the B lounge as it is always the quietest.

It is available to serving armed forces members, reservists, spouses of serving personnel, forces veterans, MoD civil servants, war widowers and cadet forces aged more than 16, and must be booked via the Defence Discount Service site.
