Opened in April 2012, the lounge offers 166 seats in both dining and lounge style arrangements on 8,100 square feet with a view over the tarmac. Towards the back there are long comfortable sofas and deep leather armchairs around large wooden coffee tables. The lounge is decorated with elegant furnishings in purple, black and beige colors, as well as vintage prints of BOAC adverts.
In the main section, guests will find a buffet with hot and cold dishes, snacks, and sweets, as well as a self-serve bar. British Airways First Class guests may enjoy restaurant-style a-la-carte dining in the dedicated First Dining area.
