Luxury, Peace, and Excellent food: Cathay Pacific’s The Wing Fist Class lounge @ HKG

I thought there was Lufthansa’s First Class Terminal… and then the rest. Qantas First Class Lounge in Melbourne gave me hope. Cathay Pacific’s The Wing First Class Lounge let me know that premium customers are well taken care of even outside of Frankfurt. I had high expectations for this lounge. All of them were met or exceeded.

After landing and promptly leaving the aircraft I made my way through transfers and headed to the Wing First Class Lounge, located near gate 4. When I came here in 2012 the lounge was under renovation, and I didn’t get the chance to try it. So I was very excited to see what Cathay Pacific could do for its First Class customers.

Upon accessing the lounge I took a look around and I was immediately impressed by it. The white marble, the chairs, the layout… everything is sexy about it! You can’t avoid but feeling pampered the minute you step in… and walk in front the champagne bar! Granted, Moet et Chandon is the only champagne on offer; but still, it makes very much VIP.

The two main areas of the lounge are spacious and feel somewhat private. Armchairs and sofas are of superior design and quality, adding to the style of the place. A full bar with bartender dots the first lounging area.

The Haven is the sit down restaurant of the lounge. The concept is similar to Lufthansa’s First Class Terminal/lounge, where a mix of buffet and a-la-carte options are offered. As it was breakfast time, the a-la-carte menu focused mostly on egg dishes. As I was still very full I passed on that. The buffet, instead, had a full breakfast spread, on par with some top hotels. Freshly-made juices, pastries, breads, cold cuts, cheese, fruit, dim sum, stir fried noodles, congee… there was a little bit of everything on top of traditional American items such as bacon and scrambled eggs. While I wasn’t hungry at all, I ended up filling my plate and finishing it all…! That’s how good the quality was.

Before going to the Haven I tried to get a cabana, but unfortunately they were both taken and I couldn’t secure one  not even during the coming hours. I then had to settle for a shower room which, to be fair, was absolutely first class.

My time at the Wing First Class lounge was very relaxing indeed, and gave me the time to recharge a bit before my last leg to Taipei.

    Wish first class lounges would be in our budget – with 5 +14 hours flight ahead to Dubai soon…

      I feel your pain! Often times, though, you can access lounges by paying a fee! Where will your layovers be?
