It's still a bit odd though, I think - there are busier lounges on the network that never close and still manage to give their staff break time (i.e. good rostering).

As to the crew using the Plaza Premium lounge - HKG-BKK is technically a turnaround, but with long ground time. Can't let crew go landside, or wander off on their own as they are still on duty, technically, so the lounge refreshments are a good option. There still needs to be a semi-private space for briefings or work-related meetings, which a public restaurant wouldn't be suitable for.
