At first we need to know which program you are holding your status with. This limits the options.

You can access the QF lounge and the Cathay lounges, the bridge, the wing and the pier. And the cabin.

if you have time hop around, I personally think QF is the best, and normally closest to the gates QF flights depart.

i went to the pier the other day and it was good, maybe better than QF, but it's at gate 60 something so it's a long journey from immigration and the gates QF flights normally depart from.

I'm a big Pier lounge fan personally. But know many on here will prefer the QF Lounge. It's worth noting the QF is a hybrid business / first so expect more than your conventional international lounges in Aus.

This might help: http://www.ausbt.com.au/hong-kong-airport-cathay-pacific-qantas-oneworld-lounge-transit-guide - also http://www.ausbt.com.au/hong-kong-lounge-guide-for-qantas-cathay-pacific-and-oneworld

Bottom line: as a Qantas Gold member you've got access to all of Cathay Pacific's Hong Long lounges bar the first class ones (and the arrivals lounge, in the public area of the airport terminal). The Pier Business Class is brilliant, but down the other end of the terminal from the excellent Qantas lounge. Closer to the Qantas lounge is The Wing, which has a great noodle bar and coffee loft, but if you want to sample Cathay's best business class lounge then you'll need to head to The Pier.

OP is eligible to access the EK lounge too if flying QF, right?  (Assuming it is open at the time.)

EK/QF agreement does not cover Asia?

For me,

Option #1: CX Business Pier (newest)

Option #2: CX The Bridge

Avoid CX The Cabin - it's a bit of a zoo.

Asia is indeed covered - a Qantas Gold flyer on a Qantas coded and operated flight from Hong Kong to Australia can certainly visit the Emirates lounge in HK, but provided it's open.

If you were flying Cathay Pacific, or were a Oneworld Sapphire member from another airline (such as AA or BA) and flying with Qantas, you'd not have access, however.

That's what I thought. Thanks for confirming.

Yeah, I forgot to mention The Bridge - a really nice little lounge, buy now that The Pier is open and just a few minutes' walk away, that's the one to head for if you're in this neck of the HKG woods.

And yes, The Cabin gets super-busy, really is best used if your flight is departing from a very nearby gate and you don't have much time to lounge around - it's best as a short-stay option.

Just to be clear, I have no financial affiliation whatsoever....  But I can thoroughly recommend an app called loungebuddy.  It's free to use (they make their money by selling lounge passes where you don't get free access) but if you load your FF status, lounge access programmes etc and itinerary (or import itineraries from Tripit or Concur) it will list all lounges you can access, indicating whether they are free or paid, any restrictions on access, and includes descriptions of the lounges (most with pictures) and user reviews.  It's one of my favourite apps!
