British Airways to refresh lounges at Edinburgh, Seattle and Heathrow – Business Traveller

British Airways is to refresh its lounges at Edinburgh, Seattle and Heathrow this year, alongside an ongoing refurb of its Heathrow T5B facility.

The carrier said that it would add a “brand-new bar and an enhanced menu offering” at its Seattle lounge, as well as “new touches” at its Edinburgh facility.

At Heathrow BA is also replacing furniture at its T5 Arrivals and T3 lounges, as well as adding new day beds and areas for working at its Concorde Room.

Last month the airline unveiled a new Whispering Angel rosé wine bar at its Heathrow T5B facility, as part of a wider refresh of the lounge.

Back in the Concorde Room, BA has partnered with mixologist Mr Lyan to create an exclusive ‘Turbine Martini’ recipe using gin partner Aviation American Gin.

A moving bar has been created with built-in scales, and a bespoke mixer has been designed by luxury watch firm Bremont and design and engineering company CALLUM.

According to BA the mixer has “a motorised mixing paddle engineered to carefully stir the cocktail at the perfect speed of between 120-160 revolutions per minute, elevating the citrus and floral notes to create a smoother martini blend balancing the ultimate combination of aeration, dilution and cooling”.

The mixer is also available to purchase for the princely sum of £2,995, at
