First class has never been better. In fact, it’s getting a bit ridiculous. Since no one seems to mind, and everyone actually seems to love it, airlines are constantly one upping each other to create the most seamless, luxurious experience possible for their most discerning clients. In an attempt to take things to the next level, British Airways are unveiling a brand new First Class Wing at London Heathrow Terminal 5, and you’re invited to the unveiling… kind of.

A Bit Of Background On The New First Class Wing…

At the far right corner of Terminal 5 sits the First Class check in area, available to OneWorld Emerald members, First Class flyers and no one else. British Airways have undergone an extensive renovation, construction project to create an entirely private wing for check in, featuring a bespoke, custom designed security channel just for passengers with access, which leads directly into the Galleries First and Concorde Rooms respectively.

I’ll Be Doing A Facebook Live From The Grand Opening!

British Airways have kindly invited me to join along for a neat day of activities in anticipation of unveiling their First Class Wing. I’ll be boarding a flight from Gatwick to Heathrow (#avgeek dream), where I’ll learn a bit about the history of the project and direction forward. After landing we’ll get a grand tour of the new facility and be amongst the very first to see it in action.Β What a privilege. Rather than keeping it exclusive, we want to share it with you and British Airways kindly obliged for us to use the event as our FIRST ever Facebook Live. Running a Facebook Live will allow us to share the event with you in real time, communicating back and forth and showing you whatever you’d like to see, while I hopelessly attempt to narrate…

When And Where to Be For The First Class Wing Facebook Live…

The unveiling will take place roughly 3:25PM (15:25) London time on April 5th. That’s 10:25AM in New York, 7:25AM in LA, the rest you’ll have to figure out. To be a part of the “live” audience, hop over to our Facebook page sometime just before. You’ll see that we’re “going live” soon and be the first to see and experience the Wing. Obviously timing can be thrown off by a bit, though I will endeavor to give advanced info if things get pushed back at all. So, to recap, be on Facebook Wednesday April 5th, go to our page and check out the live event. If you happen to miss it you’ll be able to see it afterwards.
