Any China Domestic Flight Lounge Options

Hi All,
Going on a china tour in a couple of weeks and have 6 domestic flights in China from the following airports.

Beijing PEK
Xi'an ZLXY
Guilin ZGKL
Kunming ZPPP
Lijiang ZPLJ
Wuhan ZHHH

Flights are expected to be on Air China or China Eastern.

Unlikely I know, But is there any Executive Club lounge options for domestic flights in China?

Even if there were, if you’re flying on Air China then your BAEC status will be useless to you as Air China is not a oneworld or BA partner airline.

You can't use BAEC status to open any doors here, your two options are if your Chinese airline offers lounges via the cabin, or by deploying Dragon Pass or Priority Pass. Luckily both have a full coverage here. I think there are ways of getting these cards cost effectively and personally I find PP very useful.

You will find China's lounges fairly similar, not much more than comfy seats, wifi and a fairly restricted range of food and drink.

Thanks for the reply. What I expected really, wishful thinking on my part

There is the obvious way - buy a premium cabin ticket.

Having said that - I have yet to.come across a Chinese airport lounge - especially domestic - that would be worth making any effort to get in.

All the flights are booked in economy by the tour company and when I enquired about a price for business seats I had to sit down for quite a while.
