Heathrow Terminal 4 Lounge

I was told some time ago that the Holideck Lounge at Terminal 4 was closing at the end of June. When I rang my airline to confirm my booking for October I was informed that the lounge had re-opened however I cannot find any information confirming this on the internet. Does anyone know the present situation?

Hello

I emailed BAA direct about the lounge situation and they confirmed that it is closed

Reply from BAA on July 12th:

Dear Matthew,

Thank you for your email.

Unfortunately BAA no longer has lounge facilities at Terminal 4 and there is no replacement planned in the near future.

It also appears that they havent teamed up with any other lounges to offer a replacement service

reply from BAA on 15th July:

Dear Matthew,

Thank you for your email.

Unfortunately I do not have any information on other lounges available. I can only recommend that you contact your Airline to see if they offer their own lounge to passengers.

Please contact me if I can be of any further help.

I used to use it as part of the Priority Pass programme but I notice they don't now list it. Also you can't book it on the Holiday Extras site and you used to be able to.

There is a web link which says it's open:

but this may be out of date

It seems to be a disgraceful waste of facilities. It was a superb lounge offering excellent food etc and newly re-furbished at, I should imagine, considerable cost

I, on the other hand, felt that the Holideck lounge was one of the worst, tackiest, cramped lounges anywhere. There is another lounge in T4... the SkyTeam lounge. That is a pretty good one.

Although the rent from BAA was probably astronomical. Never went there myself (never needed it as a BA flyer) but heard it had good views of 27L/09R.

I have read about the Skyteam Lounge and it looks just like the Holideck! Apparently it is for Air France, KlM and other airlines such as Kenya Airways (who I am flying with) but I wont know until I get there on 1st October. Some say the Holideck was cramped well I went up to the second floor and there were very few people there at the time I was in and the food was excellent.

Skyteam have a very good lounge at Terminal 4, however it is only for those flying 1st class on certain airlines, e.g. KLM, Kenya Airways I dont think you can book unless you are 1st class but you can always ask!
