England London Heathrow Lounge

19 March 2010

Heathrow and flying in a bed

Leaving the hotel and getting to Heathrow was very smooth, the hotel didnt argue on check out that I hadnt prepaid (which I had) like most hotels do, there was no line, I crossed the road and stepped straight onto the right train which went direct to my terminal.
Once there I was given a fast track pass for security etc. and I was past everything in under 5 minutes, and headed straight to the Galleries first lounge, run by British Airways but the assigned lounge for Qantas passengers.
It was huge, and largely deserted, they have an a la carte restaurant (see below), 2 champagne bars, a day spa which is free and too much food to eat, I did my best to not engage in ravenous gluttony.

This is where non frequent flyer wankers like me have to wait for their plane, it was very crowded, when I came out later to get my plane it was doubly crowded and people sitting on the floor everywhere.

A champagne bar, not the chandeliers, also, the coffee they serve is absolutely terrible, I nearly had to leave and go to starbucks instead, then I realised that coffee is a bad idea as I cant sleep on planes.
