Skyteam at T4

SKYTEAM’S new business class lounge at Heathrow T4 is now fully operational although the splendidly re-vamped terminal does suffer from a reduced train accessibility, limited to a free Heathrow Connect service (four per hour) and reduced Piccadilly Line access.  As well as Skyteam qualified Gulf Air, Kingfisher and Olympic Air passengers can use the excellent facilities which are laid out on two floors.  A feature is some splendid foliage along the main internal wall on both levels.  There is room for 300 but AERBT recommends using the very peaceful upstairs (which has a lift) duplicating the ground floor facilities with the exception of the spa and shower area (including a sauna), but offering children’s amenities.  Buffet meals are provided and there is a well stocked bar plus internet and games consoles.  Smoking is totally banned and flights are not called, which can be embarrassing if you are using one of the tempting private rest rooms and decide to have a sleep. www.skyteam.com
