'Game of Thrones’ Star Denied at BA Business Lounge


Maisie Williams, who is known for her role as Ayra Stark on Game of Thrones, was denied access into the British Airways business lounge for being under 18.

Even celebrities have to adhere to the rules and regulations of airport lounges.

The 17-year-old Game of Thrones actress Maisie Williams was denied access to the British Airways business lounge, and not because she was traveling with her trusty sidekick Needle; it was because Williams is under 18.

Williams, who is known for her role as Ayra Stark on Game of Thrones, took to Twitter to voice her grievances against British Airways.

“Denied from the business lounge once again for being under 18 and without an adult… British Airways sort your s*** out,” Williams tweeted.

Williams was quick to point out that she did not believe her fame should grant her special treatment but instead tweeting that “… if 16-18 yr olds are grown up enough to travel 5,400 miles around the world I'm sure we can handle sitting quietly in the damn lounge.”

Fair point, young Stark.

Yet British Airways did its best to offer Williams their apologies.

“Hi Maisie. We're sorry if you were disappointed, lounge guests must be 18 or older. We look forward to welcoming you soon.”

Williams, still not fully satisfied with the response, took to Twitter once more. “Yes.. @British_Airways fully understand that, my question is why? Why can we travel alone but not use the lounge? It makes no sense.”

British Airways explained that its business lounge is stocked with a self-serve complimentary bar that is left unmonitored.


Williams put her sword away, and just like that, the battle of business lounge access came to an end.
