Yes the CX F is a nice little spot, although I wasn't impressed with the breakfast yesterday (runny poached eggs, non-crispy sausage, tea poured for me before it had a change to brew). Totally admit these are first world problems and mainly personal preferences however, not going to get too annoyed by them!

I thought my lunch in the CX F lounge in April was very good.

Not perfect (over salted asparagus, main course arrived while I was still enjoying the asparagus, starter plate not removed while I was enjoying the main course, slow top up of drinks- although the dining area was only 25% full, etc) but still a very pleasant experience and high quality food.

A higher class of experience than the BA GF lounge, although I enjoy the GF food and the better wine/champagne.

Another vote for the CX lounge.

Although there is something strangely (pathologically?) rewarding about lounge hoping and comparing and contrasting lounge offerings in T3 like an amateur travel journalist. If feels a bit like work which helps assuage the niggling sense that you might be wasting your life.....

Indeed, I might write an article comparing and contrasting teh sausages in the T3 lounge breakfasts on my next T3 trip.

I personally like BA T3 GF for dinning (I prefer the food and the view as you eat) and then switch to CX for a relaxing drink with a view in a very comfortable chair.

OWS flying J so relegated to business class lounges during early morning hours 0530-0915. Checked out all three lounges. I don't drink so no opinion or review of alcohol.

Breakfast
CX scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, beans, mushrooms, etc.
AA scrambled eggs, sausage, beans, mushrooms, etc.
BA egg rolls, bacon rolls

All had pastry, bread, yogurt, fruit, cereal, juice, etc.

Best coffee CX and BA IMO.

CX J lounge was empty and very quiet.
BA lounge the busiest.

CX and AA lounges very new, whereas BA lounge looks tired.

BA lounge is always very warm, whereas CX and AA are comfortably cool.

All lounges had both sparkling and still water.

CX wins hands down on aesthetics and comfort IMO.

My personal opinion for J lounge in the morning from best to worst; CX, AA, and then BA

CX J lounge doesn't open until 0730. AA and BA open at 0500-0530

One extra useful bit of info. The CX J lounge serves full english breakfast until 12 noon, which is definitely appreciated!

I've mentioned this a number of times before, but people on the BA board have a weird love for those tiny little bacon roll things which I'd use for sport rather than eating...

Those hard rolls BA have are terrible. It's hard to find a worse bacon sandwich anywhere in the UK.

That's what baffles me. I quite like a bacon roll, nice bit of bread, nice bacon, can be lovely.

However, those bullets with a slice of bacon in them, I'm sure I nearly lost a tooth the first time I bit into one...

I​​​​​​I will admit, I grab 4/5 and then toast with butter, remove the bacon and make my own.

Any news on the Qantas lounge? That's well overdue. September? October?

November (not sure it's overdue, mind). It currently looks like Cathay at least 3 months before opening, but there were special factors there.
