British Airways has reopened its lounge at San Francisco International airport following a six month refurbishment.
The lounge remains in its current location near Gates A4 and A6 on Concourse A, which benefits from floor to ceiling windows and good views of the airport apron.
The new lounge has combined the old Club and First lounges into one. Whilst First Class passengers and Gold Executive Club cardholders no longer have a separate lounge, First Class passengers do benefit from a new dedicated pre-flight dining area.
The lounge follows a similar design brief to BA lounges in Aberdeen, New York and Rome. The centrepiece of the lounge is granite topped bar.
You can also take a 360 degree tour of the lounge on a dedicated microsite.
Although the lounge has not increased in size, first impressions are that the new lounge is a significantly better use of the space and it has a much more open feel than the old lounge. There is also a vastly better range of seating choices.
Access to the lounge is available to British Airways First and Club World (business class) customers, British Airways Executive Gold and Silver members, and oneworld frequent flyers with Emerald and Sapphire status.
In terms of other BA lounge refurbishments, the Geneva and Johannesburg lounges are currently closed for refurbishment. Hopefully in the next few months, we will have a timescale for a refurbishment of the BA lounges at London Heathrow.
