Cathay Pacific Business Class Lounges

Cathay Pacific have a fearsome reputation in the airline world for being among the world's best. And indeed they are good, very good, but sometimes it's hard to see what all the hype is about.

Cathay Pacific are however very proud of their lounges, which are very much part of the whole experience, and as such the airline often likes to have its own lounge, even when there are other airline lounges available.

Cathay Pacific Hong Kong lounges

If you fancy going on a lounge crawl, Hong Kong is the place to do it. You could - if you really have nothing better to do close to one of the world's most active cities - spend all day going around the four main Cathay Pacific lounges at Hong Kong, plus the other two oneWorld lounges at HKIA.

However reviews of lounges at Hong Kong show that they are all pretty much the same. The Wing and The Pier both have separate First Class sections, showers, and the same food and seating. However the Wing has First Class cabanas (bathrooms with a chaise lounge and bath) and a a "Gamezone" with plenty of electronic toys. The Cabin compliments the Wing, with different food (hot sandwiches, antipasti, and freshly squeezed juice) and a better business centre. If you only have time for one lounge, make it The Cabin. Also lacking a First Class section is the G16 lounge, which is the former Dragonair lounge, offering a Chiu Chow Express noodle cart, but the lounge atmosphere is pretty poor.

Hong Kong Stuck overnight? The Travelers Lounge bar is 24h

However, when on your lounge crawl remember that the airport is big, and that the concourse shuttle train at HKIA will only move you outwards, and it's a long walk back from the Pier to the Wing.

Alas, there are no oneworld lounges open 24 hours a day at HongKong, so you can't overnight inside the terminal itself, unless you buy admittance to The Travelers Lounge (and while you're there, pop in the missing "l" and apostrophe): at HK$420 for a six hour overnight stay (including bed, shower, and breakfast) it is pricey, but well worth it if you're stuck overnight. The bar is open 24 hours a day too.

Hong Kong Airport Guide
Hong Kong Cathay Pacific Deck Lounge
Hong Kong's Cathay Pacific The Deck lounge is to be found down the escalators as you leave the north wing security (the opposite end to Cathay's checkin), then turn to the extreme right (effectively, back on yourself) and then almost all the way to the end of the pier. Then take the escalator opposite from Gate 16, and head to the top 'mezzanine' level. T more.

Hong Kong Cathay Pacific The Arrival Lounge
This tiny box of the Cathay Pacific The Arrival lounge is a great place to freshen up after the long flights from Europe or over the Pacific. It is located in the passageway between Terminals 1 and 2 (after you've gone through passport control and customs). It is quite hard to find: once you exit customs at either the top or bottom of Terminal 1, h more.
Location: Landside, by train station

Hong Kong Cathay Pacific The Pier Business Class Lounge

Open: 0530-0005

Hong Kong Cathay Pacific The Wing First Class Lounge
The Wing Cathay Pacific First Class lounge Hong Kong is one of the world's best airport lounges, bar none. It is really very good indeed. It is also often very busy too, and at these times - often late at night - quality is lost as the lounge descends into a heaving mass of passengers. However the Cathay Pacific First Class Wing lounge, is actually more.

Hong Kong Cathay Pacific The Bridge Lounge
The new kid on the block in terms of airline lounge at Hong Kong, The Hong Kong Cathay Pacific Bridge Lounge is very much the flagship feature lounge at Hong Kong's Chek Lap Kok airport, at least in daytime. The lounge is vast - spread over a giant 27,500 square feet - however during the evening it turns into just a long rather dull corridor. It's great i more.
Location: Airside near gate 35
Open: 0530-0030

Hong Kong Cathay Pacific G16 Lounge
The G16 lounge is located in the North concourse, right by Gate 16, and if it looks a bit old, that's because it is, having a past life at the former Dragonair lounge, which has now been taken over by Cathay Pacific. It is a "one lounge" complex, which is a simple way of saying it does not have a separate First Class section, and with food similar to t more.
Location: Airside near gate 16
Open: 0600-0000

Hong Kong Cathay Pacific The Cabin Lounge
Described by Cathay Pacific as "contemporary, refreshing and dynamic", it is a move onwards from the design of the original Pier lounge, which is now looking a bit careworn. Indeed The Cabin features a cutting edge design so much on the edge of ultra-modern it could also be called achingly trendy. For all its aspirations, the new lounge is separated int more.

Hong Kong Cathay Pacific The Wing Business Class
For many passengers the Cathay Pacific The Wing Hong Kong Lounge is the main Cathay Pacific lounge at its hub in Hong Kong.

Tokyo Narita Airport Guide
Tokyo Narita Cathay Pacific Lounge
The Cathay Pacific First and Business class Lounge Tokyo Narita is a small comfortable haven amid the chaos of Terminal 2.

Alas, the lounge isn't really site more.

Kuala Lumpur Airport Guide
Kuala Lumpur Cathay Pacific Lounge
Of all the oneworld lounges at Kuala Lumpur, the Cathay Pacific Kuala Lumpur Lounge is definitely the best for cleanliness, quiet, comfortable seats, and business facilities. It falls down a little in terms of the food, and certainly the bar, but other than that it is the lounge of choice - which is why it tends to be full of refugees from Malaysia Airlin more.

Taipei Cathay Pacific Lounge
The Cathay Pacific Taiwan Taipei lounge is a pretty standard Cathay lounge, although also pretty big, and so it should be with the vast amount of traffic it gets on the huge number of flights to Hong Kong.

The Cathay Pacific Frankfurt Lounge is a combined First and Business Class lounge, and is in effect one large room.
