Cx lounge in washington dulles airport

Anyone know what CX plans for a lounge in IAD? American doesn't have one.........BA has one but doesn't stay open late enough to serve a 0115 hour flight.
I hope one can have dinner somewhere before boarding this flight since I generally sleep rather than dine at 1 in the morning.

Very unlikely CX will open a lounge at IAD in the foreseeable future.

I guess the BA lounge will extend the operation.

CX uses the BA lounge in ORD, EWR, and BOS. CX also used to use the BA lounge in JFK before moving to T8 and SFO before opening its own. BA lounge at IAD seems to be the most possible choice. Just like EWR and ORD (and probably BOS, too?), CX staff can take over during CX hours and use the space.

My guess is also BA. CX uses BA lounge a lot. For SFO, they used JL then switched to BA for a few years before they had their own. They used BA again when they started to have two night flights before they expanded their own lounge. They operated BA lounge during BA's off hours.

The problem is BA lounge @ IAD is practically no difference from UC. (Note - that BA lounge is also a PP lounge.)

So I am not so sure about that...

It's only accessible for PP card holders until 14:00h. I imagine what's on offer expands a little bit after that time.

In all likelihood it'll be the BA lounge - actually it's a pretty good lounge for a relatively small outport

There aren't many choices at IAD and they are all just ok. BA lounge does double as a PP lounge, but I think PP users have a time limitation for entry. I remember being turned away once using my PP status, and was told PP users can't access it after a certain hours. I have forgotten when.

I don't see any other lounge that Cathay can use except the BA lounge. Cathay personnel (probably just hiring BA personal with Cathay uniforms) will take over at Cathay flight times.

During the hours BA Lounge is open for PP passengers, it has different food and beverage. The TK lounge is now a PP lounge and tends to get more PP customers these days.

Departure gate will be important. TK & BA lounges are in B concourse whereas the remainder are in A, to include VS & EY. *O flights depart from both A & B.

Interested to see what their solution will be. I'm on this flight mid-October in W - so I think I'll be out of luck!

The A and B concourses are one long hallway, and the lounges are concentrated towards the middle.
