Reply To: BA LGW move

Back to Forum


I seem to recall that someone previewed this last year.

As parts of LGW(N) currently resemble a building site – on the basis of recent experiences of being bussed from air jetty stands is anything to go by – to move to a terminal that’s already been smartened up will be an improvement. I will be very interested to see who picks up the tab for EZY’s collocation in a single-terminal.

As BA’s F lounge is a total non-event, whatever replaces it has to be an improvement. Otherwise the LGW Terraces is one of the most agreeable lounges I’ve been in. Not quite the Wing but very comfortable all the same.

Beyond that, after the drastic ex-LGW route cuts post-200[8], it is the case that BA is once again (albeit cautiously) expanding its short-haul holiday route network across Europe and north Africa as well as maintaining its long-haul (holiday) routes to the Caribbean, SE United States and to the Indian Ocean. With the old 737’s finally being pensioned off, I would hazard a guess that BA has turned a corner down in Sussex.
