This is good news for the LGW First Lounge, which I thought might not be long for this world.
Small, but perfectly formed, and now not stuffed with obese colonials, this is an oasis in the already calm experience that is London Gatwick – the hub without the hubbub.
They will have to sort out the Arrivals facilities though; they are over the road in an Airport hotel and the food offering and facilities are not really set up to support a flight of this volume.
Those who use this service should also note there are no Elemis Spa facilities at LGW. Though the showers pre-flights are refreshing.
