    Thank you very much for the feedback! Turns out he got a great deal for PE on AF’s A380 LAX-CDG. He’s read the reviews and is all good.

    Thanks LP! yes, they do have Toblerone bars! And Mars bars too which I thought was weird. BTW, I was funny in my review when I “complained” about lack of Ovomaltine. Overall, I found the lounge very nice, clean and well run. Highly impressed! Now my J class flight on the A330 to israel on the other hand wasn’t that impressive: great service, middling everything else (F&B, seat, etc.).

    If reading my review on a mobile phone, request for the desktop site. For some reason, the mobile version is only showing three photos when I have uploaded about 40 !

    Hi folks, sorry I forgot to update this thread. I did visit the lounge at E gates and liked it very very much. I’ve summed up my thoughts in this review (with photographs) here:

    So when flying out of LHR to Europe, I’m ok with any airline but when flying TO LHR, I’d pick BA as I get to use priority queue. Several short haul EU carriers don’t pay for fast track immigration

    I have to agree with this. I took my mum into the First Lounge back in September as a treat and she was left distinctly underwhelmed. When we came out she told me she might as well have been in the Club Lounge with my dad because at least they served bacon butties in there. Oh, and she thought the promotional stand there was tacky. I think I lost daughter points … ?

    LOL! You’re hilarious!

    I’ve never had the opportunity of visiting the First Lounge but the Club World Lounge leaves a LOT to be desired….!

    Relative ofcourse to the price they pay for them, appears to be a buyers market?

    Agree! Plus, I don’t BA would have any difficulty filling up an A380 all year round from high yield markets like Chicago, Boston, etc. (cities that get summer service). Well, even India (except that the yields won’t be that high).

    Just posted a comment on the article as well – that business class looks dreadful! They’d better sell that middle seat for a cheap price!

    Plus their Biz class looks so “bling”! I’d hate to be stuck in that for a long time. The Y product looks far more subtle!

    Folks, thank you very much for the response. I was surprised to read on online reviews that AF’s 380 doesn’t even have 180 flat bed! I’m inclined to go with KLM only because of the latest Biz class product. 2nd choice will be BA’s A380. Will keep you all updated. Thanks again.

    All the best ST and I’m sure it will all work out fine. In the meantime take it easy and get your health back on track. That’s much more important.

    agree – nothing like good health. You’re a wise man LP!

    Can I just say how jealous I am of you lot! Whilst I’ll be spending my November getting the kitchen sink replaced and wooden flooring installed here in rainy ol’ Seattle!

    Nice to hear MarkiJ. Also a big fan of Virgin Upper Class, in particular the 787 product although the refit on the 330 is good too! A350 due in a couple of years, lead to believe there will be enhancements too!

    Thank you sir! Yes, I do really think they’re committed to making this a success and the Delta partnership has given them the much needed air cover. DL is clearly the big brother, and yes, VS gets told (erm, bullied) what to do by them. But VS doesn’t seem to be complaining. At least it’s made/making them profitable and given them the courage to risk/try out new things (like the MAN-US flights).

    I do wonder if they’ll eventually buy more aircraft and start flying to more destinations (or least to AMS and CDG given their recent mergers). I suspect continental EU feed is low on US flights.
