That's good to know. I was starting to get a bit bored of the PP lounges there.

I'm flying to HK (Eva Air from SFO -> TPE -> HKG) in December. I want to check out the lounge when I arrive in HK.

1. Can I walk to the lounge?
2. If yes, how long is the walk?

Thanks

No. This is a departure lounge.

The lounge is in the departure area so you would only be able to stop by on your departure from HKG. It's a 12-18 minute walk after you clear immigration.

Clearly you're not a NY'er.

I'll have my second visit today and the plan is: Visit Pier F for shower/food and then AMEX for cocktails.

Has anyone used the Centurion Lounge showers yet? Are they open?

It should be noted you are recommended to take the in-terminal train (Automated People Mover) instead of actually walking from immigration to Gate 60. Should you not choose to take the APM, there are moving walkways/travelators as well.

Recommended by whom? I'd much rather walk before/between flights.

No Sir. I'm from Texas

Centurion showers are ok but not as spacious as the ones at DFW.

I find it impossible to take the train when I can through the HKG terminal and look at all of the planes.

+1.

Additionally, I made it from immi to the escalator for the CL in <8 min... it's doubtful the train will beat that.

I walked last time, too.

I've had some unpleasant experiences dealing with the rush to the escalators up from the train. I've noticed the CX FAs usually take the elevator rather than deal with the escalator chaos.

Does it compare to the Buenos Aires lounge with Johnny Walker Blue?
