Arriving from my flight from Seattle and the forgone visit of the British Airways Terraces Lounge in Seattle, I made my way to Terminal 5 at London Heathrow Airport to catch my connecting flight to Germany. Compare to last year it was a breeze go get through security and to Terminal 5. Last year, about the same time, they had a fire which downed a lot of planes including mine. Back then I was also not elite with Oneworld and chose United Global First Lounge in Terminal 2, which required some traveling within the airport.
Thanks to my status with Oneworld I was able to use the Fast Track lanes through security. Once in Terminal 5 you have to follow the signs for the British Airways lounges. I went to the lounge at the south end. There is another one at the north side of the terminal. It is up to you which one you choose.
However before you check in to the lounge I recommend you to locate your departure gate and time the way to the lounge. Terminal 5 is quite big and it takes a little bit to get to the Satellite Buildings housing the B and C gates. Inside the lounge you will find multiple monitors displaying departure information. Make sure you check frequently for changes. There are no announcements made within the lounge.
