If BA is suggesting that one of the reasons is the lack of space at LGW in the lounges…that is balderdash!
Gatwick Exec lounges allow Golds and Silvers to take a guest, ie a wife, AND unlimited children. It’s no wonder they are full.
There are very few Easyjet flights from the North terminal. I think the problem also arises in GLA and EDI where BA have stopped so many flights that passengers have no choice but to use Easyjet….I had to yesterday. BA does not have a flight from GLA to LGW on a sat after 13.25! So I was forced to fly EZY for the first time….quiet a pleasant experience for £27! But every seat taken….and BA is reducing its capacity on the route because they cannot fill their flights…something wrong somewhere.
