British Airways has changed its designated lounge for eligible passengers flying from Tampa International Airport to London Gatwick.
BA has previously used a third party lounge on Concourse F of the terminal. However, from 31 October 2018 the designated lounge for BA Club World and Silver and Gold members of the Executive Club is the American Airlines Admirals Club.
Under Oneworld alliance lounge access rules, eligible BA passengers have always had access to this lounge in any event. The lounge is located near to Gate 85 on Concourse F. The lounge is open until 19:15, 10 minutes before BA’s daily flight to Gatwick is currently scheduled to depart.
The lounge offers standard American Airlines Admirals Club fare with complimentary soft drinks and light snack foods. BA passengers should be offered a chit on reception for a “premium beverage” from the bar. There is also a food menu which, in the absence of any information to the contrary, has to be paid for.
On a tangential note, Norwegian has now started flying from London Gatwick to Tampa twice weekly on Wednesday and Saturdays.

I use the old lounge every year on holiday what happens in the new lounge when As is often the case the plane is delayed by a couple of hours are we all thrown out of the lounge at 19.15 and one premium drink.This sounds like the Spanish CEO once again downgrading especially holiday routes he does not seem to realise that it affects the opinions of Gold Card holders on holiday who normally travel club and first on business.Also great timing when Norwegian are now flying the route BA needs a new CEO
Last year we waited over 2 hours for the club lounge to open. It’s the same this year. Surely, once BA opens it’s desks for checking-in access to the lounge should also be available.
