If you can get in the CX lounge it's worth a look, better showers than BA and noodle bar.
Under OneWorld rules, a person travelling business class on a OW carrier can use any OW lounge

Should be no problem getting into the CX lounges

There was a temporary issue with BAEC members/BA PAX specifically NOT getting access to CX lounges at LHR T3 in certain circumstances. This should have ceased with the recent opening of the T3 galleries ...

The question was to do with CX lounges at HKG though

Exactly,
I found no help on the sticky here but did find this:

"First and Business Class passengers travelling on oneworld operated flights are entitled to use any of the three departure lounges, irrespective of oneworld status."

on the CX FT sticky?? So when BA97 tells me I do NOT have access to the CX lounges in HKG then either BA97 is wrong or the CX sticky is wrong!
Not a big deal but we will have time to kill before our 23:15 flt and my wife has mobility problems so can't trek from one side of the airport and back so I was hoping to experience both BA and CX lounges if they were close and if it is worthwhile?
Thanks again............H

Trying to stay on topic here...

I obviously didn't know the Oneworld rules, as I said I use status rather than ticket class.

http://www.cathaypacific.com/cpa/en_...e?cityCode=HKG says OK for business class passengers on other Oneworld airlines (see Note 1 at the bottom)

Personally I found the lounge list / access rules to be a mess and never used that feature.

Lounge access rules are easy enough to find almost anywhere - I would not be relying on BA97 to tell me whether I am entitled to use a particular lounge or not.

The BA97 calendar focuses on helping people to connect at airports. It is not meant to inform about complicated lounge access rules (That is what FT is for) although it does try its very best to fit the rules in.

The choice of lounge selections is far from perfect and uses a few basic rules (like airline FF status) to generate the list. It covers most of the common selection but not all combinations and permutations.

I think that some folks are forgetting that the BA97 site is set up and managed by BA97 and others from here on a voluntary basis with a desire to help fellow travellers log their flights.

The lounge info could (I'm not sure if it still can) be updated by anyone so may not be accurate as rules change from time to time. Indeed I assisted with the S7 lounges at DME, but I'm sure that this may now be out of date.

We should be grateful to BA97 and team rather than laying into them when something is not as accurate as it could be. I'm sure they will welcome constructive criticism but please folks, we are all meant to be friends here and slating a site run by volunteers for inaccuracies is hardly constructive.

To clarify, my post above was not meant as a criticism - it was just a comment about my own experience with the website and not relying on BA97 for access rules. I think it's a great database / logging tool and really appreciate the efforts of BA97 and others that go towards maintaining the website.

When I specify a departure from ICN or NRT, the Star Alliance lounge lists are wrong, and the access rules are also incorrecct. Now, I didn't know about this thread until about an hour ago so I had no idea that I could help update the lists - when I get a chance after exams, I will come back to this thread and help clean up the cities that I find errors.

Edit: Could someone kindly upload the Cimber Sterling logo please? Airline code QI, image: http://www.cimber.dk/gfx/cimbersterling.gif Thanks

Fair enough - my point was that what one finds on the oneworld web site does not always concur with reality/practice.

Hi,
today I tried to enter the loyalty cards I hold into BA97 but got this error message.........

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80040e14'

[MySQL][ODBC 3.51 Driver][mysqld-5.0.67-log]You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near ')' at line 1

/ba97/calendar/maintain_loyalty.asp, line 45

Am I doing something wrong?
