Cathay Pacific's San Francisco lounge is getting an upgrade to cater for an increase in flights between Hong Kong and Fog City, which now numbers 17 weekly direct Boeing 777-300ER services.
The lounge, which first opened in late 2011, will expand into an adjacent space to boost the number of seats and the amount of elbow-room.
Given the relatively young age of the lounge, Cathay Pacific will retain the original blueprint from Foster & Partners rather than apply a make-over to the new StudioIlse design seen at Haneda, Manila, Bangkok and of course the new flagship, The Pier First Class Lounge at Hong Kong (below).

More showers and a wider variety of food and drink options are also on the to-do list, with the works slated for completion by the end of 2015,
An enlarged CX lounge at Taipei will also open in the fourth quarter of 2015, followed in early 2016 by lounges at Vancouver and London Heathrow Airport.
The Vancouver lounge is being relocated closet to the airline's departure gates, while the London Heathrow facility will boast around 30% more space.
