    Hi all,

    Hope this hasn't been asked before. I did a search, didn't find much.

    I am flying JFK-LHR in CW, then LHR-DEL in First.

    I know I can access the Concorde Room at LHR, but can I also access the CR at JFK as I am on an itinerary with a First flight on it? Or do you have to be immediately getting off or departing on a F flight?

    Thanks!

    You don't have access. You need to be departing on a BA flight from JFK in F.

    So how about flying JFK-LHR in BA F, I know there's Concorde Room access in JFK, but what are the lounge options on arrival in LHR? I ask because I have a few hours to wait after I arrive for a friend to get there. Is it just Arrivals lounge access or can you grab Breakfast in the Concorde Room?

    Unless you are connecting to another flight leaving from T5, you will not have access to the airside Concorde Room at LHR.

    You can use the Arrivals facility. As an arriving F pax, you can use the Concorde breakfast room in the Arrivals Lounge. Ask for invitation when you enter. You cannot take guests in who are not otherwise entitled to entry.

    Can I add to this one, I am flying SFO-LHR in F, and then have a four hour layover, and then flying on to Istanbul in Y. Do I get CCR lounge access or do I have to go to the arrivals lounge? Thanks!

    On the assumption that LHR-IST is BA ex-T5 (and SFO-LHR is BA F) then yes, you can spend your time at LHR in the Concorde Room. Show your SFO-LHR BP to the agent on entry. Stay airside, following Flight Connections on arrival at LHR.

    Does anyone know the hours for the Concorde Room at JFK? We are flying SFO-JFK-LHR in a couple of weeks, arriving on AA, departing on BA (in F). We have a ~12 hour layover and plan to stay in the airport.

    A bit unrelated but I'll ask in case anyone knows: from LHR we continue on to SIN in F on QF. What lounge(s) do we get to use in London?

    When I used the club there in November, I remember seeing an area that was for F pax...not sure if it was a proper Concorde Room or not. :)

    I've used the AC (Flagship Lounge), BA Lounge, and CX lounge at LHR T3. I know there was a separate F lounge for CX pax...

    Thank you!

    There is a Concorde room at JFK, but the BA site sneakily (that I can find, anyway) doesn't talk about its opening hours.

    There is a Concorde Room at JFK, I can't recall opening times but recall reading somewhere that it was only open for evening flight departures, until that point only the First and Terraces lounges are open. They are open 8am to 10pm daily.
