The latest step in British Airways’ GB£5bn investment in new and upgraded product and services is a re-launched lounge at Washington Dulles airport. The upgraded lounge can now host 200 customers, thanks to 10,000 square feet of space. It features intimate bar areas, business facilities, fine dining, shower suites and a private VIP area.
A private dining room is available for customers traveling in first class, which offers comfort and privacy, and those travellng in Club World can enjoy their pre-flight dining with views over the runway. For people wanting a lighter snack, a new deli area offers a range of options along with Twinings tea, freshly ground Fairtrade coffee. A stylish new bar area offers a range of complimentary wines and spirits.
The extra space will be put to good use as the airline is now flying five A380 services a week between London and Washington DC (increasing to a daily service at the end at the end of October), which can accommodate up to 97 passengers in Club World and 14 in First.
