We're obviously from different schools of thought.

could they please rotate the menu around every few weeks? i'm sure the Peninsula chefs there are capable of that ... i guess cooking the same food every day gets a bit routine for them too?

or am i the only one who is getting bored with the same food each time i visit? i'll be there again this Saturday afternoon ....
It was the same food again today!!

Chatted to a chef - he said the menu will change next week or the week after.

Just remember that 8am is 8pm in another part of the world. You'll be just fine.

Let's see if they have the new menu the next time I pass through in a few week's time.

What alchoholic improvements does the JAL lounge have over the CX lounge? I might have to give it a try, as I thought the wing was subpar on that.

Cabanas review

Finally got a chance to tried the world-famous Cabanas at the Wing F lounge. First impression walking in the door: AWESOME. It does look like a mini-hotel room. An open shower place. A full bathtub. A long stretch sofa. A huge mirror that sticks out into the room with sink and bathroom amenities. A long "working-desk" with another wall of mirror. A generously big closet, and an enclosed toilet room. However, after the wonderful first impression is over, time to compare with the old cabanas.

Bathtub a bit small for *bigger* people. I'm not fat but I am muscular with broad shoulders. When I lay down I found myself having to fold my shoulders inside a bit. Consider that the room has the bathtub attached to a big intrusive that stretched 2/3 into the room, and only 1/3 of that intrusive part is used for the bathtub, they could of definitely installed a bigger bathtub in there, maybe even a Jacuzzi style tub that most American homes have installed nowadays. Also, the placement of the water faucet, when you lay in there it hits you right where it would hurt the most...

All others are great. Although with an open shower without a screen door you might want to put your stuff far away from the shower area to avoid spillage on your briefcase, etc.

The Wing FCL lounge is excellent. Overall, CX is a great experience. I have a flight coming this week and I'm looking forward to it.

Thanks for your reply.

The reason for my question is that hopefully my wife and I will be able to use these soon. Is it designed ok for one person to have a bath and the other stay in the livign area?

Alos can you order food into the cabana like in the BAs Concorde Room?

I tried to order drinks, but the shower staff simply ask you to go out and order them yourself. (In the past it's right next to the dining so you can order and they take it to your cabana room.)

There is no "living" area per say, it's one big room with a huge mirror extended in mid-air. If you take a bath, your wife will be sitting on the sofa staring right at you...

Because it's more than a bathroom.

Buffet was fine, service was "cold" at best. Boderline, grudging/rude.

Disappointed.
