I just wanted to drop this in quickly for anyone who is flying on Tuesday.

According to a post on Flyertalk on Monday evening from someone who is known to be a British Airways employee, the Terminal 5 Galleries North lounge and the Terminal 5B Galleries lounge will be closed from Tuesday.

The other lounges will reportedly remain open:

Terminal 5 Galleries South

Terminal 5 Galleries First (which is at the South end)

The Concorde Room (which is at the South end)

The lounges in Terminal 3 and Gatwick South will also remain open.

If it turns out that there are any changes to this tomorrow, we will write an update.

  1. O/T The Guardian is reporting “Marriott, the world’s largest hotel company, has just announced it is starting to furlough employees (give them temporary leave) as it ramps up hotel closings across the globe.Marriott, which has nearly 1.4 million rooms worldwide, started closing some hotels last week and tens of thousands of employees are expected to be affected.Top executives from Marriott, Hilton and other chains are due to meet Trump later today.”

    • Yes, my dad’s hotel (Sheraton) closed from tomorrow for two months at least, maybe more. He might have to retire early, but lots of other employees are going to have to take unpaid leave and some will lose their jobs.

  2. Correct. Can confirm this is the case tonight.

  3. SkyTeam Lounge is open in T4
