British Airways amenities

Flying today is not only trying but it can really be tiring. How often do you just feel like taking a nap between connecting flights but can’t find a comfortable spot to do so.  Well if you’re flying British Airways in top cabins you can curl up in a pod in its. Forty Winks lounge.

The special room, specifically  for customers using the airline’s Concorde Room, features ‘EnergyPods, that promote pre-flight shut-eye.  There are hosts who book your pod and also wake you up at a specific time with hot towels and beverages of your choice.

British Airways loungesThe Rip Van Winkle-like lounge is part of British Airways opening of its upscale waiting rooms. Another aspect is the addition of seven cocktails by famous mixologist Mr. Lyan. Two special cocktails, the Barton and Lawford  are named after Lynne Barton, the first female British Airways pilot, and Bill Lawford, the first ever British Airways pilot in 1919.  Each drink focuses on the best of British seasonal ingredients that specifically embrace ‘in-flight’ and wind pollinated flavors. The Barton and Lawford will also be available in the Galleries Club lounges and First lounge.

Holiday eats

Besides being able to nap and sip super cocktails, passengers  can also enjoy lavish meals as the airline introduces ‘Best of British inflight menus’.  This kicks off with traditional roast with all the trimmings.

These BA enhancements, of which there are more, are especially meaningful during this time of airline angst. Nothing like a nap, a stiff drink and a fine meal to soothe the soul.
