Hi All,
I noticed on BA site that they mentioned after ariving at Heathrow on First Class that you could go to their lounge to refresh and take a shower before leaving the airport. My question is, what happens to your luggage during this time? Having a shower would be great but leaving your bags on the carousel for an hour unattended does not sound like a great idea. Any clues?

There is an arrivals lounge after baggage collection and a place to store bags inside the lounge.

Thank you Simon,
That helps a lot. Another question:
I will be arriving at Frankfurt on Thai airways First Class and would like to do the same thing. Is there a lounge you can use after collecting the bags?
Thanks Again
Glenn

United Airlines have "Arrivals by United" for F pax at SFO I used last year, and even after a pleasant flight in F it is always nice to have a shower. You are issued your Arrivals by United voucher when you check in at SYD, and after your shower they also offer a very nice breakfast. This is only for arriving pax, and not a F lounge for departures so very nice to refresh while waiting for a connecting flight.

Glen,
Arrivals lounges are not common.
So think you're out of luck in Frankfurt
