British Airways lounges provide a comfortable airport experience to travelers looking for a place to relax, enjoy some food, and freshen up before their flight. This rings even more true for travelers visiting the British Airways first class lounges, or the luxurious Concorde Room.

It may seem strange for the flagship carrier of the U.K. to have such a large lounge presence in the U.S., but luckily for British Airways and Oneworld flyers, the carrier operated 16 lounges across 9 U.S. airport locations.

This post provides a complete list of every British Airways lounge location in the U.S., along with an overview of the lounge’s location within the airport, operating hours, general amenities, and how you can access them.

Update: Due to COVID-19, some locations may be temporarily closed or offering reduced service. Visit Oneworld’s airport lounge locator for a detailed list of open lounges.

Visitors to British Airways’ lounges have access to complimentary food and drink options, but the offerings will vary based on the quality of the lounge.

Club Lounges, for the most part, will offer a buffet of hot and cold items, snacks, and a selection of alcoholic beverages, including Champagne.

Galleries First Lounges and Concorde Rooms step the offerings up a bit by including offering a pre-flight dining experience with menus to order from, waiter service, and à la carte dining options.

British Airways Lounge Amenities

The amenities found in British Airways lounges are not unlike what you might find in other lounge networks across the world. Guests have access to business centers, free Wi-Fi, shower facilities, televisions, and plenty of seating options to relax in before your flight.

British Airways Eligibility

Whether or not you’re able to access a British Airways lounge depends almost entirely on what fare class you’re flying with British Airways or one of its partners, or your level of elite status in the British Airways Executive Club or Oneworld program, as British Airways does not offer day passes for sale or annual membership options.

For the most part, business class passengers are able to access British Airways Club Lounges when traveling business class with British Airways or one of its partners, or if they have Oneworld Sapphire or Emerald status.

The upscale first class lounges are reserved for passengers traveling in first class with British Airways or one of its partners, or those that have Oneworld Emerald status.

As for the Concorde Room, British Airways’ best lounge experience is only accessible to British Airways’ first class passengers, or those that hold a Concorde Room Card status within the Executive Club program. So traveling first class with one of its Oneworld partners will not get you access.
