Yesterday we told you about the new Qatar Airways Frequent Flyer lounge in Heathrow Terminal 4, which opened this week as flights turned to the terminal.
This is a brand new lounge, which sits below the existing Premium lounge.
As explained yesterday, the new Qatar Airways Frequent Flyer lounge works like this:
Open to: Business Class, First Class, oneworld Emerald (eg BA Gold), oneworld Sapphire (eg BA Silver)
Guesting: You can only bring a guest if getting in via oneworld status
Which airlines?: The lounge can be accessed by Qatar Airways passengers as well as those flying on other oneworld airlines (eg Malaysia Airlines, Royal Air Maroc)
Reader Philip was in the new lounge last night and kindly sent us some pictures.
There was high praise for the food, which appears to be overseen by high end caterers Do&Co. Our reader said it is easily equal to the British Airways Galleries Club lounge and in places on a par with BA’s Galleries First.
Here are some shots:
You don’t get table service, of course. The full restaurant experience is only available to passengers using the Premium lounge.
All in all, it looks pretty impressive and a decent place for oneworld elite members flying in Economy – plus those Business and First Class passengers who are not on revenue tickets – to spend time before their flight. The Qatar Airways gates are directly opposite the lounge.
