London Heathrow Airport  FIRST CLASS CHECK-IN AREA

The First Class Check-in in Terminal 5 at London Heathrow Airport, also accessible to Executive Club Gold Card (and higher) Holders and Oneworld Emerald Members.   Separated from the rest of the terminal, with a separate First Class Security Check area and a shortcut to the First Class Lounge bypassing the Duty Free areas.  One of the best First Class check-in areas anywhere.

The seats are comfortable and spacious

The divisors ensure some privacy if wanted.

There is some good storage facility incorporated into the seat.

The leg area of the proper flatbed is spacious and very comfortable.

All passengers has their individual storage facility, but it cannot be locked.

The food menu is excellent, with the main drawback being the lack of Caviar. 

The wine list is excellent overall, but only non-vintage Champagnes are available, although of good quality. The bar is good and includes Tanqueray No Ten and a single malt whisky as well as an XO Cognac.


A major lack is the absence of any First Class Escort helping the passenger through security and at the arrival airport.
