Cathay Pacific transit in Hong Kong

By DBOC | May 17, 2017, 01:00 PM
Flying BNE>HKG>VIE in a couple of weeks with CX to Hong Kong, but then Austrian to Vienna.

I'm guessing Cathay won't allow entry into the Wing lounge on transit with another carrier, which leaves one of the Austrian associated options: Singapore Airlines SilverKris Lounge, Thai Royal Orchid Lounge; or United Club Lounge

I've only used the Wing lounge at HKG - does anyone have suggestions as to which one of the above is the better choice?

I'd head for the Singapore Airlines lounge, which has been upgraded to the same style as the Sydney and London lounges. No harm in checking out the Thai and United options though, if they're close together and time permits.

Don't bother with the Thai lounge. It's an open air lounge like the Wing, without the restaurant, noodle bar or cabana. So it feels pedestrian.

OK thanks for the tips. I was concerned the SIA lounge was a bit closed in with nothing to look at other than a TV, but I've got a few hours to burn so will probably do a tour through all of them.

Nice, then you can post a follow up review for all ;-)

Ha, now there's a good idea on how to waste some transit time .. a live in situ report, lounge hopping in Hong Kong. Might just do that : )
