The British Airways Executive Club today announced a positive change to the benefits for Gold Guest List members.
Gold Guest List and Gold Guest List For Life members can guest up to FIVE passengers into BA’s own lounges, excluding the Concorde Room. Guests can also use the First Wing in Heathrow’s Terminal 5.
Here is the text of the email that BA sent out:
As one of our most valued Executive Club Members, we know it’s important for you and your loved ones to share the experience of our luxurious lounges whenever you travel.
That’s why we’re delighted to let you know that you can now invite up to five guests travelling with you to use our lounges, whenever you travel together. Not just on your next trip – but on all of your future trips. It’s now a permanent advantage of being a Gold Guest List Member.
We look forward to welcoming you and your guests on your next flight with us.
In essence this was already in place during the holidays, when British Airways sent out invitations for eligible members regarding expanded guest lounge access.
It is rather unfortunate that this benefit will not apply to the Concorde Room, which is BA’s real first class lounge.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
This benefit is only available to Gold Guest List and Gold Guest List for Life Members. It is linked to your individual Executive Club membership, is not transferable, and is subject to the standard conditions of your membership.
Whilst we will make every endeavour to accommodate your guests, additional lounge access is subject to capacity and limited to a maximum of five additional guests travelling with you on the same flight (in addition to any partner card access). Should your first choice of lounge not be available you may be asked to use the business (Club World) lounge.
This extended access does not apply to The Concorde Room.
Guests travelling with the Gold Guest List Member from London Heathrow Terminal 5 may use The First Wing.
Due to limited capacity at London Heathrow Terminal 3 and all other worldwide airports, additional guests will be asked to use standard security lanes.
This offer is limited to British Airways flights only at all British Airways owned and operated lounges worldwide.
For all other flights and lounges, including oneworld carriers, standard Guest Access Policy applies.
