@Swissdiver – I cant see why any airline should host pax flying on another airline and outside of any alliance partnership.
I think the switch to allowing oneworld ticket holders to use the BA lounges is superb as long as this is FULLY reciprocated by all members of the alliance, including domestic USA flights.
Its a bit like all are equal, but one puts more into the pot.
I have enough of an issue when seeing BA staff in uniform using the lounge.
Where the lounge facilities need to be enhanced is the BA T5 arrival lounge which is now heaving most mornings, with q’s to get a shower. Its a shame that European travellers do not have access to the T5 arrival lounge.
My vote is with BA to remove the Anytime Access, despite the fact I am a user of the facility.
