Delta is closing its London Heathrow Terminal 3 Arrivals Lounge on September 20, reports Business Traveller. This is the lounge at the bus station.
This part of the consolidation of all Delta flights with Virgin Atlantic in Terminal 3, leaving most SkyTeam partners in Terminal 4.
Delta business class passengers, and Diamonds and Platinum passengers in economy will now formally have access to the Virgin Revivals Lounge. Yay! Previously access was not written in stone.
The two lounges have similar amenities and catering. Delta lacks the Virgin panache and spa treatments. Delta is so out of the way and not promoted to Delta passengers so its traffic seems limited to those in the know and those directed from Revivals.
Revivals is not large, though the article indicates it is expected to be sufficient for current volume of travelers so will not be expanded.
The only time I visited both lounges, Revivals had a comfortable amount of people and Delta was deserted. I wonder how many eligible passengers know of these lounges and if they do, how many use them instead of getting on with their day.
