Lounge in PKX

Hello,
Flying PKX-LHR in a few weeks...I know it's not opened yet but did anyone know/heard about the lounges which will be available to BA/Oneworld FF?
Thanks!

To save others the google, PKX is Beijing Daxing.
IAN-UK and Misco60 like this.

Have same route coming up in F and I can’t find any info on the specifics of the lounge other then the BA press release saying there was an ‘improved’ lounge offering.

It would be a challenge to under perform PEK in the lounge category. I'm actually quite optimistic about PKX on the whole though; being on the wrong side of the city is its only negative in my book thus far.

I'd bet it will be the China Southern lounge given the new commercial relationship

My understanding is PKX is one of the named destinations where oneworld are hoping to open a oneworld lounge - hopefully this plan hasn't been dropped as it would make perfect sense as at LAX.

At least PEK had the Cathay lounge?

The CX lounge at PEK isn't going anywhere. It has never been nice (IMO), and I doubt it will ever become nice.

I am flying back from there 3 Jan. In MMB there is no lounge section in at the airport all it says is this

At the airport

After you have checked in, go immediately through Security to the departure area. Allow enough time to complete security search and passport checks, and to get to your gate before it closes.

This is the page (in Chinese) that shows all lounges at PKX (use google translate).

https://www.bdia.com.cn/en#/servicel...&childrenid=99

So I would guess that the options are either China Southern if the BA cooperation extends to this, or the BCS contract lounge.

In PEK BA used BGS. I tried to enter CX lounge with a BA F boarding pass. Dragon said she is allowing me in only because of I am an OWE but F itself isn’t sufficient. Felt odd.

Thanks for the website link. I've been trying to find it for a while, but this is the first time I've seen it.

My money says BA flights will end up using the CZ lounge (due to the numerous codeshares), which is sure to be nicer than the BCS lounge because CZ is effectively making PKX its new home.
