Lounge Access? SYX & HKG with Business Class Award Tix

Lounge Access? SYX & HKG with Business Class Award Tix

  1. Joan

    We managed to burn some AA miles before the devaluation by booking a Business Class itinerary with DragonAir and Cathay Pacific.

    I’d like to know our best options for Business Class Lounges.

    We’re flying SYX-HKG on DragonAir. At this time the Business Class seats are not available, so we’re confirmed in Economy (tho the Business Class tix are for the entire itinerary…not just the second segment).

    The Lounge Access Policy states that Business Class Passengers gain access to the Departure Lounges. Do our seats in Economy jam us? To further confuse things the lounge in SYX is described as a First Class Lounge. Is it only for First Class passengers?

    At HKG it seems clear that we will be able to access a Business Class Lounge before our departure in Cathay Pacific Business Class HKG-SFO.

    There are several choices on the website. Which is the best for our two hour layover from 2300-0100?

    The Wing, The Bridge, The Cabin or The Pier (website says “opening soon”)?

    Thank you in advance for taking the time to respond.

    Not sure if CX/KA Since youre connecting same day on CX J, I believe they will give you lounge access at SYX. That being said, I dont think it’ll be anything special so if you’re denied access, you’re not missing out on much.

    How long is your layover in HKG? You could lounge hop and visit all three CX lounges Wing, Bridge and Cabin. Also available is the Qantas lounge. I was in the Wing recently and thought it was fine. I wouldnt count on The Pier – Business opening soon since there hasent been an update.

    We only have a two hour layover from 2300-0100.

    Technically we depart HKG on the next date (at 1:00am) after the DragonAir flight.

    In your case the Qantas lounge will be closed. Your best going to the lounge that’s closest to the gate for your flight to SFO. You won’t have that much time after transit security and flights to the US have another security check at the gate.

    I agree, 2 hours is not a long enough layover to schlepping around the airport. I’d just go to the closest lounge to my gate as well.

    If your connecting flight depart before 6am/0600 the next day you should have lounge access. I think domestic flights in China is similar to US with 2 classes sold as Y and F, hence the F lounge in the Chinese airport. But doubt a small airport lounge in China is much of a loss.

    2 hours in HKG is much to short a time to visit anything but the closest lounge.
