A Review of the Qantas Business Lounge, London Heathrow T3 (LHR)

Overall Rating: 4/10

An airline run lounge at Heathrow T3. One of four lounge options at T3 for OneWorld Sapphire card holders, and the most disappointing in my opinion (BA, Cathay Pacific and American Airlines are the other options).

Food:

A limited lunchtime buffet with a couple of hot options and some sandwiches.

Drinks:

Waiter served bar with a range of speciality gins. Ridiculous system where waiter takes order at the bar, and then has to go downstairs to make the drink. This leads to a significant wait for drinks.

WiFi and Power:

Moderately fast lounge WiFi, protected with a password.

Views and Comfort:

Comfortable, modern chairs with side tables. Fairly stylish, and only opened recently. Decent views of the apron, from oddly positioned chairs.
