bob342, since you're in business class on a oneworld airline, you'll have access to all oneworld business class lounges in Hong Kong. I personally recommend The Pier, which is a little bit out of the way near gate 65, though the schlep is well worth it. Amazing lounge with great design and tons of facilities.
Fantastic, thank you both for the tips. I've just read up on "The Pier" it sounds great, I think we have a 3 hour stop over in HK so we should get some value out of it.

Since you have QF Bronze status, which isn't anything for oneworld, you'll be using your cabin class to access lounges. Business will get you access to most oneworld member business class lounges. For example, in HKG, you'll be able to use the QF lounge or any of the CX J lounges.The QR lounges in DOH and LHR have different rules, and the arrivals lounges (really only AA and BA at LHR and CX at HKG) are not part of the oneworld agreement and have their own access rules.They can also refuse access for "capacity" reasons, BA and CX do this often at North American ports.There are 3rd party lounges which can only be accessed when flying on the airline that contracts with that lounge. ie, QF uses the AF/KL lounge at SFO. oneworld status holders can only use that lounge when flying with QF.
