American Airlines will be moving all of its London Heathrow flights into BA’s Terminal 5 from tomorrow, Tuesday.
‘All’ isn’t much at the moment, of course. American is only operating four flights – one per day to Dallas / Fort Worth (DFW), New York JFK, Chicago O’Hare and Miami.
Check-in will be in Zone C, except for Flagship First customers who can use the First Wing. The dedicated security lane in the First Wing is currently closed, however, so if there are no queues it is a bit of a waste of time heading down there.
Lounge access is available as per standard oneworld rules.
Finnair is also due to move to Terminal 5 in the next couple of weeks.
