I do notice one thing that is worse than the wing though. In the wing, you are asked for a drink within minutes of your arrival. Upon arriving in the pier there were plenty of seats free in the library section, but not a single one that was cleared from the previous "resident". Perhaps I arrived right after a rush, but now 10 minutes later that one lady is still moving around in slow motion, clearing plates.

Also, there is more piss on the wash-room floor... Perhaps also a rush-thing, but I percieve the wing as being better staffed keeping stuff AOK in the never ending battle with the filthy passengers...



PS
To keep this thread somewhat on topic, I can also report that my CX check in agent interlined my bags from CX to SK on separate tickets, without moving a muscle.
Having just arrived back from my MR/holiday in SIN, I had the pleasure to visit some of the lounges in HKG. Went to The Wing and to The Bridge (no access for me to The Pier). I only had a very brief visit to the Wing, as it was about to close for the night, but from that I felt that I prefer the Bridge, which I've visited already on the way to SIN, so when 5:30 they've reopened, I went to the Bridge for shower & breakfast.
