To answer Londonian’s question re Cathay F LHR Lounge reopening. I was advised last week that the reopening is now scheduled for mid September. That the F lounge will be some 30% larger than the previously and be a scaled down version of the new Hong Kong Pier lounge. Also that the J lounge will also be larger than the previous lounge and be a similar design to the excellent refurbished lounges that have been opening around Asian destinations over the past 12 months.
At Gatwick it seems CX will use the BA lounge when it opens in November(?) but until then there seems to be no information currently (CX starts to fly 4 times a week using A350 aircraft from 2nd September) available other than that there will lounge availability… which is rather odd given that flights commence in 3 weeks and nothing posted re Gatwick on CX lounges website page.
