CONCLUSION

Prior to my trip, I checked and found out that British Airways does not have its own lounge at Atlanta. This means that even if I would be flying in first class back to Europe, I will be using this lounge which caters to both business and first class passengers, and that this lounge is more like a business class lounge. On the other hand, I thought that this was pretty okay and that the food and drinks being offered were very good. I actually arrived around 6pm and there was not much guests yet although it eventually got crowded later. There was also complimentary wifi which was pretty fast. I also got to use the shower room I badly needed after spending the whole day in the city visiting the CNN studio, Coca Cola and Centennial Olympic Park among others. Overall, a very nice lounge 😉
