Just finishing up business in HKG and heading for NRT on CX. Regional flights are only J and Y, but Emerald OW status provides invitation to F lounge at 'The Wing'. Mid afternoon flight, so just had a full lunch in the F dinning room:
- minimalist chinese architecture, cathedral ceiling terminal, views of the surrounding mountains and the sea; inside the dinning room, quiet, subdued ambiance, attentive CX premium service, fine wines, magnificent Asian and Western buffet and a silent stream flowing by my table over a bed of river pebbles.
- have another hour and a half before flight, so was offered to use one of the Cabanas in the "The Haven": a spa complex with cavenous individual spa rooms: wrap-around showers, huge, deep granite baths, futton and terrace with banana lounge over the countinuation of the stream flowing through the library and dinning room
- Library: has the abience of a boutique hotel in either Bejing or London or somewhere between the two: same stream, same silent refinement

In short: THIS is an airline lounge. May all others be judged by it!!!
Not the first time I've been here, but a continual reminder of how good customer service can be....

Other airlines PLEASE take note.


When all's said and done, there'll be more said than done.

Once upon a time, US airlines charged reasonable fares that could justify upkeep of dignified lounges. (In the late 70's, I was happy if I could find BOS-ORD r/t for less than $300. Now, almost 30 years later, the fare are usually much less than $300).

But with airfares so low today, people STILL complaining that they are high. So the airlines must let old perks die. Meals. Customer service. Lounges.....

I've been to many F/C lounges around the world and beleive me 'The Wing' at HKG is what I consider the best in the world and all others are judged by.

To start with, US airlines charge ridiculous membership fees for their pathetic lounges. So I don't see how they aren't able to keep some standards.

I agree with this report completely. It is the best 1st class lounge I have ever experienced. I have some photos of it in my report: SFO-HKG-MEL 1st Class On CX And QF (43 Pics) (by Crdaus Jun 5 2006 in Trip Reports)
