For my return flight from London to New York, I was again flying British Airways Business Class. I was given a Fast Track ticket, which meant I could proceed through a special line, but when I entered I was sent back to the BA lines so my passport could be validated. This took a few extra minutes, but additional security is a good thing.
I walked through the airport. Hello Harrods Bear!
I visited the British Airways Lounge at JFK on my way (see Review, HERE), and now it was time to visit a British Airways Lounge at Heathrow.
There are two British Airways Lounges inside Terminal 5. I went to the South lounge because it was closest to my gate, larger, and because it was the lounge that had an Elemis spa. I had a 15 minute complimentary massage and proceeded upstairs to the lounge.
The lounge was spacious, with plenty to eat and drink.
yes! a self-pour bar!
The food was actually quite good. My favorite was the Chicken with Thai curry sauce. The wine was good too.
The airline representatives inside the lounge were very helpful. They were able to change my seat from a middle row to an aisle.
The return flight, non-stop from Heathrow to Kennedy was also on a 747. I was once again seated in Business Class. I have no complaints about the flight. It was fine.
The first course of the meal was a shrimp dish and a salad. Both were great.
For the main course, I had a meat dish (steak or filet mignon, I don’t remember exactly). The flight attendant told me I was the only Business class passenger to pre-order my meal!
There was also an assortment of Greek salads, but I was too full to try them.
Dessert – with clotted cream, of course!
