Washington became British Airways' fourth A380 destination, after Los Angeles, Hong Kong and Johannesburg, with the inaugural flight on 2 October. It marks the start of daily A380 services between London Heathrow and Washington.
In conjunction with the start of the A380 services, a brand new, larger British Airways lounge has opened at Washington Dulles Airport. The new lounge is over 10,000 square feet and accommodates over 200 guests with fine dining, intimate bar areas, business facilities, shower suites and a private VIP area.
The new lounge reflects the style of the Terminal 5 lounges at London Heathrow, with areas to relax and unwind, or refresh and work. The Club World pre-flight dining area offers great views over the runway, and there is a waiter service private dining experience and private bar, exclusively for guests travelling First.
Customers will also be able to enjoy a Deli style dining area for those who prefer a lighter meal, a Deli bar stocked with tasty treats, rain showers, a business suite, power points at almost every seat, and a stunningly designed bar area.
