If you want to escape the hustle and bustle of the public airport concourses, you're welcome to relax in our Concorde Room lounges at London Heathrow Terminal 5 and JFK New York. Savour fine dining before your flight. Relax with a glass of champagne. Or take afternoon tea - a fine example of British heritage.
If you've brought your work with you, our business suite has everything you need to carry on, including a boardroom. Then our private cabanas give you privacy, with a day bed and en-suite bathroom.

Once you take your seat in the First cabin, your upgrade reveals its true colours. Your space is like a private cabin within a cabin with personal windows and electronic blinds and your own wardrobe. Your personal entertainment system comes with a 15" screen and noise-cancelling headset. Choose from over 100 movies, TV programmes, 50 music CDs and audio books, as well as 20 interactive games. Or just relax with your own pictures, movies or music by plugging in your iPod.
Some of the world’s finest chefs contributed to our First menu. It changes from month to month according to the quality and availability of seasonal ingredients. But the focus is consistently on simplicity and flavours. Naturally, afternoon tea is served and you can take a snack at any time during your flight. At breakfast, you can opt for full English, a fresh continental or just a croissant with coffee if you wish. You can even skip breakfast and sleep longer if you prefer.
A good flight’s sleep is virtually guaranteed in First. We’ll make up your fully-flat bed with a quilted mattress, crisp white 400-thread Egyptian cotton duvet and pillow and a pair of luxurious pyjamas. You’ll wake refreshed and ready to go.
