Troy Warfield, British Airways’ director of customer experience, said: “Our First customers and Gold Executive Club members are used to the very best service and surroundings, both in the air and on the ground. The refurbishment of our First lounge at Terminal 5 will ensure they can continue to enjoy fine cuisine, outstanding wines and champagnes and relax in comfort before flying in style to destinations around the world.”

The refit will include 220 new pieces of furniture, ranging from stylish high-backed chairs, occasional tables, dining furniture and relaxing sofas that have replaced the First lounge’s previous furniture which included flocked finishes and fabrics which appear to not fit into the evolving British Airways brand including the painstakingly designed BA 787-9 First interior.

Now completed by the British Airways internal design team, the lounge features additional power outlets have been discreetly fitted to provide even more places for customers to re-charge and power up their personal electronic devices.
