Guesting into business lounges


Recommended Posts

I guess there's a few guys on here who's frequent flyer status allows them to invite fellow travellers into the business lounge. Doesn't cost anything but airports aren't cheap so why not see if you could help a fellow board member out?

Would you do this?

I'll give it a go first...

If anyone is flying on BA 009 to Bangkok next Thursday and would like to visit the Galleries Club lounge in Heathrow terminal 5 send me a message. If you are a quiet private person I'd not be offended if you wanted to sit by yourself but if you are up for a couple of drinks and a chat that's fine too.

I have done this a few times.

First time meet someone at the gate who was also flying to Bangkok on his first trip. He was asking about the airport in Tokyo and what was there to do during the 3 hour layover. I told him I was going to the Delta Sky Club and invited him to join me.

The other couple of times, did the same with someone I meet on the plane.

Only have done it once with someone who was the ticket counter in Bangkok at the same time I was who was on the same plane flying out.

I have never posted a invite, you can never be sure who might take you up on your offer.

Anyway, nice jester and hope someone takes you up on your offer.

Did this once  quite a while ago.  I went to the cattle class check in as the business class was a huge queue.  

Chatted to a neat but alternative lass ahead of me.  She seemed harmless so took her along to the lounge.  Best holiday start ever she said.  No follow through sadly but my good deed for the day.

The reason I made that comment was because I was just trying to book an awards ticket with oneworld. BA actually had the gall to ask for 2 rewards for a connecting flight AND $500 in taxes and fees (fuel surcharges I believe). Meanwhile other oneworld members ask for 1 reward and $75 in taxes and fees. Do you Brits really pay these insane taxes and fees when you book a flight with them?

Good idea. I will offer the same when I travel through T3 or T5 for the BA First Wing and Lounge. Going with a mate though next trip next month so you'll have to wait a bit longer sorry :D

BA Galleries Biz and First lounges in T5 are very nice. All refurbished last year. The best Galleries Biz is the one in the B Sat building, I think of it as like a mini Concorde Room in design and it's always empty.

As an American living abroad for 25+ years, I'm afraid I can only concur. The airlines based in the US are not at all more comfortable or accommodating than many European carriers, and many are far, far worse.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6
