I will be flying LHR-SYD 1st class. I can arrive at LHR T5 at either 16:40 or at 19:45. My flight to SYD departs at 21:30. The question is do I take the later arrival at T5 and rush through to my flight, or is it worth arriving early to sample the 1st class lounges at T3?

I did LHR to SYD in August last year.. The BA Gallaries First lounge in T3 is nothing to write home about. However i did have a nice meal in the restaurant within the lounge and wine/champagne selection is pretty good. If you are travelling after the 31st of March the Emirates lounge is great.. I prefer it to the BA one

I'd say go for the earlier arrival so you can sample the lounge(s).

Hi Malcom,

On the assumption that you're flying a oneworld airline, here's my pick of the oneworld first class lounges in T3.

For me, I don't mind at all having a shower, a massage, a few glasses of rather good champers and a wee snack in the BA lounge before trundling upstairs for the better views in the Cathay first class section, and making sure that I've sucked down a movie or a few TV shows onto iTunes for the long flight, so I'd head for the earlier option. (Especially if you're connecting from another terminal.)
