Após minha escala de 17 horas em Londres, era hora de seguir para Frankfurt. Cheguei no aeroporto de Heathrow por volta das 05:30 GMT. Como eu não optei por retirar minha mala em Londres e, já havia impresso o meu bilhete quando despachei minha mala no Rio de Janeiro. Apenas fiz o check-in on-line e fui em direção ao Galleries Lounge North no Terminal 5.

Passageiros da First Class, Club World, Club Europe ou Business UK, membros Gold ou Silver do Executive Club, membros com status Emerald ou Sapphire na oneworld ou que estejam viajando na Business da Iberia são elegíveis para este lounge.

O lounge é grande e proporcional a demanda. Devido à grande quantidade de pessoas que viajam cedo para trabalhar, estava difícil arranjar um lugar para sentar e comer algo.

Logo que entrei, os funcionários foram muito educados e me informaram o portão que eu iria embarcar. Na entrada existe um balcão com jornais do Reino Unido e alguns panfletos da oneworld, além de um lugar para guardar a mala.

After my layover in London, it was time to go to Frankfurt. I arrived at Heathrow around 05:30 AM GMT. As I preferred to pick up my luggage in Frankfurt. I just made the on-line check-in and I headed towards to the Galleries Lounge North in the Terminal 5.

Passengers of the First Class, Club World, Club Europe or Business UK, Gold or Silver members of the Executive Club, members with Emerald or Sapphire status in oneworld are eligible for this lounge.

The lounge is big and proportional to the demand, due to the large amount of people traveling early to work it was hard to find a place to sit and eat something.

Soon as I entered in the lounge the staff were friendly, also they informed me that I would board at the A5 gate. At the entrance there is a shelf with UK newspapers and some flyers of the oneworld, also there is a place to store the luggage.
