I think it can be useful if say a couple flies a roue which involves a connection with 2 x long hauls

-8x lounge access (2 pax, 2 lounges each way).... even if we take the Priority Pass price of EUR 27 per entry (the walk up price for the PPL lounge in HKG is 75USD pp), that's already 260USD and the lounges available for OW elites are almost always way better than the PP ones;
-Extra baggage, never paid for it, so not sure what is the monetary value here;
-Extra Space seat... I remember that CX charges around 100USD for these if you don't have status;
-Priority check-in, security, potential OP UPs..... priceless

So yes, I fully agree that it's not for everyone, but its an interesting offer nonetheless.
