People tend to check in during these times:
Very sad selection of sandwiches, pick up food in terminal before heading to the lounge.
Probably the worst lounge we've visited. Always busy, hot and with very limited selection of food and no special meals.
Not so bad, there are hot foods and sofas are clean. Compare to other lounges in the US, it's actually a better one.
Slooooow service but better than the alternative; can still bring in a guest
Not so much a First Class lounge as an underground bombing shelter. And with ambiance and catering to match.
Excellent service - friendly and with witt! Well-stock bar and fingerfoods.
Dear British Airways, your wifi is unacceptably slow. It's 2013, this is a premiere city, and you are one of the best airlines on the world. Easy fix...look forward to seeing improvement. Thank you. A
As decent as a basement lounge can get, but that is still pretty depressing. Also small-ish so when the flight before yours is delayed it is going to get VERY cozy.
To remain fair: all Terminal E lounges are in the basement, none has an outside facing window, and the BA lounge is one of the better ones in this terminal.
Spend as little time as possible here. It's cramped, dark and depressing. No natural light in fact no windows at all.
Cannot believe people compare lounges to T5. If you travel enough you know that none ever compare. This lounge in not the worst in the world by a long shot!
This lounge is decidedly average; the food resembles buffets from the 70's, the decor certainly isn't Osborne and Little and the WiFi reminded me of early modem days.
Stay upstairs unless you need the extra space. Food is better and there's more natural light.
innovation arrives here: houmous on the bar
Shockingly poor for a BA lounge. Grab some snacks and then go and sit upstairs again. No meal for Gold unless flying Club or First. Boo!
Terrible lounge. BA need to sort!!!
Bland basement bar. No workstations. So-so food. No Elemis Spa, like T5. Unimaginative, but there is a bar!!!! :-D
Not the swankiest lounge. A step down for BA First Class
Depressing lounge: this is in the basement of the airport without any daylight...
Pretty poor for international club lounge. LHR lounge so much better. But that's Boston, not into details.
