Hong Kong Plaza Premium First Lounge

New premium Plaza Premium lounge in HKG. Available for HKD 200 on top of a priority pass entry.

I wonder what airlines, if any, will contract with this lounge. $90 might be a tough sell for an economy passenger (heck, people won't pay $90 for extra legroom on a longhaul flight of more than 3 hours), and premium cabin passengers will already have lounge access.

Is it really confirmed that Priority Pass members can access this lounge for an additional HK$200?

No mention of this lounge is made on the Priority Pass web site or lounge directory.

Has any PP member actually done this?

If you look at the YouTube video in the review at the very end there is a flash of the sign that talks about a $200 “upgrade”. But it does say grand opening package so don’t know if it’s a permanent offer.

As someone with an Amex Plat, which has its own reciprocal access program with Plaza Premium, does the Plaza Premium F lounge in HK cost more?

my friend who was in transit flying y, for whatever reason thought this $90 was a steal, and proceeded to tell me all about how good it was.

Granted, I am sometimes confused by her perception of value, although I respect her (and anyone's) perspective on something, given reasonable grounds.

Plaza Premium has a separate website for two Plaza Premium First locations: Hong Kong and Malaysia. https://www.plazapremiumfirst.com/

Anyone know if the HK$200 deal is still going? I'm curious but I guess I will find out in a few days when I'm there.

It would be good if you could report back here whether it's still on when you find out.

Answer is yes, the promo is still going on. I asked the lounge receptionist when it will end and she said Dec 31. She did not say what the new price will be after that (if they even know yet).

Overall it was worth the US$25 to me to buy up with PP. It was not very crowded when I was there on a Tuesday afternoon--there were maybe 10-15 people in the lounge. I assume there are busier times. The receipt she handed me from the PP swipe did say that the visit is limited to 90 minutes. I don't know if that's policy or a carry-over from the normal lounge, but either way they didn't give me any trouble about being there for 2 hours.

Thanks for that.

90 minutes isn't very long at all, especially when they're getting an additional fee on top of whatever the lounge will already be receiving from Priority Pass. Many airport lounges say you're officially limited to 3 hours, although I've never seen that actually being enforced. Also, there doesn't seem to be any mechanism in place for keeping track of how long you've been there.

Anyway, I'll give the Plaza Premium First lounge a try when I'm there at the end of this month. I'll be arriving at HKIA from Macau via the new Macau/Zhuhai bridge at around 5pm and was hoping to use the lounge for a few hours while waiting for my 9pm flight.

Anyone passed by recently and saw if they still offer the option with HKD 200 supplement on top of priority pass?

It was available when I used the lounge at the end of November last year.

There were very few people in the lounge when I visited, so I'd be surprised if they had withdrawn the deal since then.
