a subjective observation based on the number of times annoyed by flies vs occurance of hyperventilation due to heat in respective lounge, probably? perhaps you can do something to disprove otherwise

What do you want them to do, put up mosquito nets ? Spray insecticides over the delicious food ? To be honest, I think, it's just concept determined, not much to be done about those flies ......
I never noticed the flies hanging out around the desserts until the last change of operator. Even if it might be concept-caused, this wasn't an issue in the past.
And also, if really nothing can be done, they could, at minimum, cover up the food.

The airport also started a terminal renovation ? There are probably so many more aspects that changed, that it would be very difficult to blame this on the caterer.

Or maybe it's more attractive food now, or the previous caterer did put insecticides in the food (just joking, of course)

I don't know, the open air concept is just vulnerable to the fly attraction aspects.

Cover up food: Yeah, I think, food should be covered always, not so much for the flies, but for the human consumer, coughing on the food, etc.

Itís very simple - they should put covers on top of salads and desserts. I thought after months of flies they would do something so simple? It doesnít take too much money or effort.

For one thing the QF HKG shower I used was larger than some residential flats in HK. Must be at least ~200 sq ft More than twice as large CX shows or 4X SQ SIN showers. Not as well stocked/equipped as CX F shower though.

Anyway the whole feel at QF is spacious, No crowded tables. Buffet food presentation always tidy. Granted I only visited before 6pm and they were always deserted.

Qantas lounge is also run by Sofitel and has many Filipina staff which helps make the service standard friendlier and higher.
