    Are you flying on a Oneworld flight?

    yes, BA but in economy

    As far as I know, your Gold card is equivalent to a Oneworld sapphire (like a BA silver card) and that should get you into the Galleries Club lounge in terminal 5.

    thank you – have never tried Galleries before, will give it a go!

    I’d recommend Galleries South (if you depart from 5a) or the 5b lounge (if travelling from there.)

    I’m not always the biggest fan of BA, but these lounges are as good as any other business class lounges I’ve encountered.

    Enjoy your time there.

    Well, you might want to prefer the North one (at T5a) that is smaller and, IMV, nicer. T5b’s is often crowded.

    South is better when you are Emerald as the 1st Class lounge is amazing!

    DoS: I think they are far better than many others I’ve seen…

    “As good as any other business class lounges I’ve encountered” means far better than many others I’ve seen.

    For the avoidance of doubt and because I am unsure if English is your native tongue.

    Thanks, DoS. Not it’s not… Only did my Master in English (well it was in Scotland which might explain…)

    I must remember not to use local expressions on an international board 🙁

    Brits tend to understate, as part of the culture, so ‘as good as any’ implies something similar to ‘not bad’, which we often use to mean ‘very good’ – no wonder we confuse people 🙂
