BA restricts lounge access

Recommended Posts

From next month Gold tier members of BA’s Executive Club will no longer be able to use British Airways lounges when travelling with non-codeshare or Oneworld partner airlines.

BA introduced the Anytime Access privilege in the late 1990s, allowing premium members of its loyalty scheme to use its lounges even when flying with another airline (so long as that airline operates from the same terminal).

But this benefit is being withdrawn on June 17, meaning members will only be able to use BA lounges when travelling on BA operated flights, or those operated under codeshare or Oneworld partnerships.

In an email sent to all Gold cardholders BA said:

“We know how important our lounges are to our Gold Executive Club members, and we want to ensure that they continue to be a place to work or relax away from the busy airport environment for customers who are flying with us and our Oneworld partners.”

While the move won’t affect members departing from Heathrow T5 (as BA is the only carrier using the terminal), it will limit lounge access for those travelling with other carriers from Heathrow T3 (from where BA operates certain routes), Gatwick airport, and from departure points worldwide.

Huh? AC doesn't allow its status holders to use the lounge when flying a non-*A or non-codeshare flight... and that's the essence of the BA change. :roll:
