The United Airlines club lounge at London Heathrow celebrated the Platinum Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II yesterday with a special selection of tasty treats and decorations. It represents just one of the thousands of similar parties that are taking place across the United Kingdom this weekend.
How United Airlines Celebrated The Platinum Jubilee Of Queen Elizabeth II
Yesterday was a day of celebration in the UK, the first of three days that commemorate Queen Elizabeth II for her 70 years on the throne.
To celebrate, the United Club in London Heathrow Terminal 2 laid out a special spread of treats, including:
- Jubilee cupcakes
- Double chocolate cookies
- Wow butter granola bites
- Kiwi lime mini loaf
- Assorted macarons
- Chocolate brownie bites
- Raspberry & white chocolate chip cookie
The pictures above are from the 1K/Global Services side of the lounge, but a similar selection was available in the main part of the lounge, with scones and poundcake as well.
There was also special gin from Slingsby in honor of the Jubilee.
The entire lounge was dedicated with red, white, and blue balloons and Union Jacks, along with white and purple balloons which represent the monarchy.
I visited the lounge ahead of my flight back to the USA and found the staff in a celebratory mood. I appreciated that United Airlines, at least in the UK, also recognized the Queen for what has been a lifetime of public service.
I’ll have a lot more details about my trip later today.
