Recommendations on HKG F lounges.

Hi all,

I have my folks flying F from HKG - LHR with BA. What lounges would people recommend from their experiences based on the below factors.

* Most Western type of food

* Most relaxed atmosphere

* Views of the tarmac.

Any help would be appreciated.

Best regards,

LTF

Hi LoveToFly,

Check out our handy guide to the Oneworld lounges in Hong Kong – all of which your parents will be able to access with a BA first class boarding pass.

Easy, The Wing First Class lounge is the best of the best here (although tarmac views isn't it's strength admittedly). Cabanas are hard to beat. The restaurant is Qantas First Lounge MEL/SYD lite, but more than anything else anyone is offering at this location.

I'd put the Qantas Lounge after that. It's much better than the old basement lounge, but isn't quite able to knock The Wing First Class lounge off it's premium perch.

If you have five hours you are almost certain to score a cabana. It's basically a enclosed toilet, vanity sink, open rainfall shower and seperate open bath. There is also a padded bench to lie on/sit on. You can also get your clothes pressed while you soak.

There's only one first class lounge at Hong Kong right now, and that's Cathay Pacific's The Wing - but the business class lounges offer some excellent alternatives including CX's The Wing Business Class (great noodle bar and cafe), the Qantas Hong Kong Lounge (BBQ pork, plate of the day for dinner, nice cocktails), and down the other end of the airport Cathay's The Bridge (its newest lounge, has its own bakery and a more relaxed vibe than The Wing).

A decent selection of western food at all of these, too; best for tarmac views is The Bridge (although being downstairs it's more of the operational area for ground vehicles plus the noses of some jets), otherwise the CX and QF lounges being elevated have better view right over the field. CX probably wins though because it's at the top end of the terminal (around gates 1-4) so you have more of a sweeping view.

Thanks David for the advice. I think il have them head to the Wing for a few hours. They have 5 hours to wait so hopefully they can get a cabana.

I would recommend the wing CX F lounge, and ask for a cabana to freshen up in - they are superb.

Given the time of day the BA flights depart (between 11pm and midnight), views of tarmac will be negligible, unless they are arriving at HKIA very early.

BA flights usually depart from near QF lounge, but be warned that as the BA flights depart after the QF flights, the service in the QF lounge is dramatically reduced once the last QF flight is called. No more plates of the day, BBQ, etc, just average buffet food. QF lounge also lacks champagne as it a one in all in type lounge, not F, but does have good red and white wines.

LTF, may I suggest advising your parents to request a cabana as soon as they enter the lounge? This way they have a very high chance of securing one.
