I thought it would be timely for me pop up my review of the Priority Pass lounge in Hong Kong (HKG) airport now that amazing 17,000+ MQM Elite Mileage run deals are back once again. I would encourage you to consider this one, well not the one on top as you get off the escalator,
nor this one at the end of the corridor as that is not the right one either,
but THAT one, that is the correct one if you happen to hold a Priority Pass card from credit cards like the:
The reason I suggest this lounge vs. the one Delta Skyteam elite+ GM or higher have access to in any class of service is location, is the view and similar if not slightly superior food choices. Either way they are about 10-15 minutes apart from each other should you wish to check them both out on a long layover or turn.
Just left of the entrance first you find bench table seating if you have a larger group with you
As well as some interesting cubical individual seating that seemed rather comfortable if not all that private.
You also have access to a computer should you want to look up something that does not require you putting in any of your own personal data!
Lastly there was a large open bar area that was blocked off. Maybe due to the fact that we were there early in the morning was the reason why and maybe readers can comment if they have been here late in the day and found this space open?
Right behind check-in are magazine racks for you to take with you as well as cereal, coffee and juices as well as a Carlsberg beer tap (a nice Scandinavian choice IMO).
Right of check-in you first run into a sweets table. Perfect if you wish to sugar load your kids before a 14+ hour flight? 😉
The rest of the lounge is really open concept with great views. This is one of the main reasons I like this club so much more than the “grotto” feel of the Skyteam club – I want a view of the jets and I bet you do too.
Really the food choices in the two clubs were very similar. I felt like the catering folks who provided for the Skyteam lounge also took care of this one but there were subtle differences.
There was also Tea, noodle and soup station at the far end of the lounge that I did not test due to the early AM flight. Overall this really is a nice lounge and worth a visit. I like the “feel” of the lounge and what is provided. It would be interesting to return later in the day to see what is provided at that time of day.
You tell me, have you visited this Priority Pass lounge? Did you enjoy your time here? Is it better than the Skyteam option? – René
