Background:

Before my Cathay Pacific flight to Auckland in business on the A350, I wanted to visit at least two of the lounges they offer at Hong Kong Airport. There’s a total of 4 business class lounges, that being The Wing, The Pier, The Bridge and The Deck. I was able to squeeze in a visit to the Wing, and also the Pier.

Once I cleared security, I stumbled on The Wing and decided to go in here first. The Wing Business Class Lounge is one of Cathay Pacific’s lounges located in Terminal 1. The Wing Business Class Lounge is 2 floors, with the main entrance on Level 6, near gates 1-4 on the main departures level.


The Wing is open daily from 5:30 a.m. until the last departure.

How to Gain Access:

  • 1) Travel in business class on a Cathay Pacific, Cathay Dragon, or an Oneworld carrier
  • 2) Marco Polo Diamond, Gold, and Silver members
  • 3) Cargo Clan Elite members departing on Cathay Pacific, Cathay Dragon, or Oneworld carrier flights
  • 4) Oneworld Emerald and Sapphire members departing on Cathay Pacific, Cathay Dragon, or Oneworld carrier flights.

The Lounge:

The part of the lounge where I spent most of my time was on the second floor. The lounge was pretty busy but also offered many different seating types from single couches, bar seating, cubicles and more. There was buffet style spreads of food in the main lobby area and where the long bar is. But, it was pretty crowded in these areas so I didn’t spend much time in these areas.

 

Where I did spend most of my type was at Noodle Bar. There was some buffet style dim sum options here, as well as made to order noodles and buns.


The Wonton Noodle Soup was my favorite. Additionally, I tried the Dan Dan Noodles but I found the broth/soup to be a bit too peanuty. They give you a nice little pager to let you know when your food is ready.


I also liked the Coffee Loft which is located right next to the Noodle Bar. It was a cute little spot with some mini finger food, pastries and ice cream. Of course I got a cappuccino to try!

 

If you need a shower, there are 23 shower rooms. I unfortunately didn’t have time to check one of the rooms out.

The Verdict:

I’m glad I got to the airport early to check out the Wing before my flight. The highlight is definitely the numerous food options in the lounge making the Wing a great place to relax and nibble on some food.
