British Airways features six lounges at terminal 5. Costing about 60 million British pounds (or about $92 million), the lounges — collectively known as the galleries — can host up to 2,500 guests. Consider the lounges a gallery of amenities.
There are shower rooms and two large Elemis Travel Spas that offer hydrating facials and massages. Clothes wrinkled? Staff will press your suits. Cocktail? That’s where the fun really begins. There are bars devoted solely to champagne and wine. There are wine tastings, and British Airways has a dedicated wine buyer on staff. Plus, there’s the “Gold Bar,” covered in gold leaf, where customers can help themselves.
