First and Club World (business class) customers heading to Heathrow on British Airways’ newly launched A380 service from Washington have the added bonus of enjoying the airline’s re-launched lounge at the US Capital’s airport.
The upgraded lounge can now host 200 customers, thanks to 10,000ft² of space. It features intimate bar areas, business facilities, fine dining, shower suites and a private VIP area.
For customers travelling in First Class, a private dining room offering comfort and privacy is available, while those travelling in Club World can enjoy their pre-flight dining with views over the runway.
For people wanting a lighter snack, a new deli area offers a range of options along with Twinings tea and freshly ground Fairtrade coffee. A stylish new bar area offers a range of complimentary wines and spirits.
The Washington lounge is the latest in a line to be re-launched, following Newark, Cape Town, Edinburgh and Belfast City.
The flight is the first and only non-stop A380 service between the two nations’ capitals and BA will initially operate five A380 services a week from Washington Dulles. This will increase to a daily service from the end of October, in conjunction with the daily BA292, operated by a Boeing 747 and the thrice weekly BA264, operated by a Boeing 777. www.ba.com
