From my experiences:
The best lounge is usually located at the airline based or their big hub.
For example, CX
lounge in SFO
are just so-so.
Here are some good ones, mostly at their base:
First "The Wing" in HKG
is very fancy with great food. You can get your
little personal room to take a little nap, very nice touch.
First in SIN
is also pretty nice all around. Although it can use some windows and view. SQ
overall facility for First at Changi is just really nice and in the class by itself. It starts from the curb side counter, separate
checkin lounge, easy access to immigration. It's very nicely done and I haven't seen anything that even compares to it yet.
First in KLIA probably has the best, grandest view that I have been too.
Facility there is not up to par with CX
/SQ standard though.
International First in SFO
is the fanciest US airline lounge I have been too. It felt like sitting in a country club rather than an airline lounge.
International First in BOS
is not too bad either. Staff was very attentive
when I was there.
Not that impressive lounges at their base airport:
- ANA First lounge in AA
), Japan">NRT is just so so facility with nice attentive staff.
International Business Class Lounge in BKK
Not much to write home about.
I haven't been to their first class lounge if they have one. I haven't flown
in F or P for ages now.
domestic Business class lounge is barely acceptable IMO. It's just a bit
better than sitting in general waiting area. They sorely need to improve this
facility. This is what happen with a lack of competition.
