    I will be making my final arrival into and departure from Gatwick North in mid-January. Having spent the last 2 years with silver status I have just managed to scrape gold for next year so a chance for a final visit to the No1 Clubrooms before the big switchover.

    By my next visit in February, we should be flying in and out of the South terminal where I believe (hope) the new BA lounges are close to being ready.

    Does anyone have any news on progress? Will they be open on schedule, and what will they have to offer?

    A poster [pennieuk] on Flyertalk has pasted in some information from BA’s trade website which includes the following

    A brand new lounge will feature in the South Terminal for our premium customers which will include the following features:
    477 seats, 40% larger than the North terminal lounge
    A separate First lounge with upgraded seating, finishes and lighting
    Floor to ceiling windows offering fantastic views of the runway
    A beautifully curved staircase overlooking the main lounge
    Full kitchen facilities in both lounges giving an upgraded offering
    Children can enjoy the ‘kidszone’ room
    Shower facilities

    It is on page 57(!) of that thread about the lounges, at least when I view it on my computer.


    Wow, I don’t feel I’m missing out on anything.

    Will the one staircase be anything like the two interlinked beautifully curving staircases in the TK lounge at IST?

    Presumably as the first lounge has upgraded seating there are park benches in the business lounge.


    …but BA staff rumour at LGW is that the move will happen as planned. Just the opening of the new lounge is delayed until Mar 1st!!!!
