7. British Airways later replied, explaining the company’s policy.

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

8. But Williams was still not impressed.

Yes.. @British_Airways fully understand that, my question is why? Why can we travel alone but not use the lounge? It makes no sense.

9. And appeared to switch allegiance after Virgin Atlantic stepped in and said she could visit its lounge.

“@VirginAtlantic: @PVBuk we can accept customers from 16-18, but obviously the 16 and 17 year olds can't drink” The logical answer..
