BA First Galleries at LHR

Our Blacklane driver was waiting for us when we came down to the lobby at 9:30am.  

Looks like a perfect week for Santorini.  

With little Sunday morning traffic, we were at Terminal 5 in about 30 minutes.

One of the benefits of One World Emerald status is the use of First Class check-in anywhere in the One World system.   For all its warts and faults, First Class check in at Terminal 5 is quite nice.

A cool recent feature is First Class security directly from the check-in.  It was painless and quick this morning with only a handful of other passengers.   After security...

... down a corridor....

... directly into the First Galleries Lounge.

Nice views and plane-spotting.

First Galleries is large and mostly pleasant although a little dated and frayed at the edges.
