Which Lounge in Hong KongBack to Forum
Anonymous6 May 2013
We are transitting through Hong Kong soon and are going on a BA Flight in First. As I am unfamiliar with HKG, which lounge to use can you recommend? We are looking to relax with a couple of drinks and have a dining option due to the late departure of this flight and we are arriving from BKK on CX. Any advice is much appreciated.6 May 2013
flier74, have a look at this link from when i posted the same question in 2011.6 May 2013
The best experience will be Cathay Pacific’s The Wing First Class Lounge. A private cabana (for bath/shower – waaaay better than BAs lamentable cabanas in T5) Waiter service dining in the lounge restaurant (The Haven – & some restaurant quality dishes unlike some lounges) followed by drinks at the Champagne bar.
Very civilised. I will return in a few weeks for more of the same.6 May 2013
I would agree that the newly re-opened CX First lounge in the East Hall is the place to go.
Food and service provided by the Peninsula.
The BA F lounge is actually not that bad, but CX trumps it in both the food and wine quality.6 May 2013
I agree – CX is the best. The BA lounge seems overcrowded by comparison. But please check their respective closing time. CX and QF may not have late late flights, so they may close early. I usually fly back to Cape Town at 11:45 pm, so I know the CX lounge will stay open past midnight. Also, I remember BA doesn’t serve champagne. CX does.9 May 2013
I am flying Club World back to LHR later in the year. I have used the Qantas Business Lounge in the past but was wondering if I would have access to any other lounges? Sadly not Silver, Gold or OW member so I imagine the answer is no.9 May 2013
Based on many transits of HKG would recommend CX’s The Wing First Class section – can be very crowded at certain times, but has good food and beverages and huge cabanas with all necessities for a good spruce-up between flights.9 May 2013
