Virgin Atlantic is closing the spa in the Heathrow Revivals arrivals lounge

Virgin Atlantic‘s arrivals lounge at Heathrow Terminal 3 – which it calls the Revivals Lounge, and which is shared with Delta Air Lines passengers – is having a refurbishment, starting on 12th August.

Unfortunately, as part of the work, the spa treatment room is being removed.  Instead, Virgin Atlantic will be taking over the space to add an extra two shower rooms, taking the total from 18 to 20.

There is no change to the spa service at the Heathrow, Gatwick and New York JFK departure Clubhouses.

Virgin’s website for the Revivals Lounge at Heathrow T3 is here.  Our last review of the Virgin Revivals arrival lounge is here

In general, it is a surprisingly small space compared to the British Airways facility in Terminal 5 but it does the job.

    OT car rental question – I know Hertz and Europcar do one way rentals for £1 for repositioning vehicles to major airports, but has anyone heard of or used DriiveMe.co.uk – which seems to be a platform to facilitate this?

      seen it mentioned, site definitely offers Hertz £1 bookings but can’t see any Europcar

      worth a look as it opens up Hertz £1 bookings way into the future whereas the Hertzone site is more limited in dates

      btw using Hertzone £1 booking last month was painless & a good experience, so I recommend it – though I was careful to examine the car carefully and get the ‘no further damage’ confirmation and my invoice printed off at Heathrow to try to limit their opportunity for charging funnies later (plus had independent excess insurance)
