For my flight to London, I booked a ticket in Club Europe with 9k Avios points. This choice wound up being driven by award availability (or the lack thereof in coach), rather than any particular desire to fly intra-European business class.
Between possessing oneworld Emerald status and being ticketed in business class, I was able to fortunately avoid the lengthy check-in line.
As I was checking in, I asked where the British Airways lounge was located and found myself directed back from where I came. The lounge isn’t very prominently signed nor is it particularly close to the British Airways gate, which is a bit of a challenge by the standards of how small Tegel is.
I also got the feeling that I might have been here before.
As my exposure to oneworld has mostly come from American Airlines, I’m still learning the ropes of what exactly I should expect from British Airways’ “terraces” tier of lounge. Observations so far? Juice and wine of unknown quality seem to be on-hand.
After settling into the lounge for 30 minutes, they announced it was time for boarding.
I’m pretty sure I didn’t get my 4.5k extra Avios worth of legroom out of this flight.
