Which Red Carpet lounge did you use on the ORD stop before boarding for HKG? What about during HKG stop (I'm continuing to SGN, so will pass through HKG on way out and on way back)?

Anything you can suggest to make this very long flight go easier?
Hi, so exciting that you're traveling tomorrow! Didn't have time to check out the Red Carpet Clubs in Hong Kong, but I believe we were at the one by gate C16 in Chicago. It was close to our departure gate, C18.

In terms of a better flight, make sure you're sittng a few rows back from the front of any economy section. The LCD is quite bright and makes it harder to sleep. Exit rows also become crowded with people waiting in line for the restroom. Eyeshades, earplugs, and neck pillows are helpful too. I really enjoyed my mid-flight walk, and my entertainment was a mix of shows on my iTunes, in flight movies, the Hemispheres crossword, and an absorbing book. Variety was key!

Enjoy your travels!
