RTW: Day 1: LGW Lounge

Finally it starts!

The trip from Plymouth to Gatwick was uneventful but not the most comfortable from Reading. My knees hurt! Nevertheless, I am in the Gatwick BA lounge and all is excellent!

Fast track security was empty… about 5 minutes to the lounge from entering the airport! Is that a record?

The lounge is pretty quiet. Staff seem superb, Castelnau bubbly is on free-flow and like the champagne, I am finally chilled.

This is one of the best BA business lounges I have been in. Of the ones I have tried so far all are pretty good but none are truly outstanding but the food here is very passable and the view of the airport engaging.

I had a very fresh mixed salad with Moroccan chickpea salad. The hot food looked pretty good too but I plan to eat later so gave it a miss.
