Curious... Arriving LX and continuing on the CX codeshare to SYD in C with no OW status: does LX F arrival or HON give access to any lounge beyond CX C lounge?

LX HON PA, will meet you at the end of the jet bridge, escort you through transit security & then I recommend you ask to go to CX Wing J itís very nice & way better than any *A lounge at HKG. Wing has nice showers, lots of space, reasonable to good food for J lounge, itís on multiple floors I like the Long bar at the top great views & you can eat & enjoy a glass of Mumm Champagne

I'd say that the Pier J is considerably nicer than the Wing J.

Nothing wrong with Pier J , almost anything in HKG is better than *A offerings, I think the showers are better/ bigger in Wing J & I love the Long Bar

Yes, the CX F lounges are very nice but for me they donít rival FCT, FCL Satellite MUC or FCL E ZRH

Good news from HKG.

LH listened to customer feedback on the lounge situation & now offer Plaza Premium First Class lounge access for HON & F pax departing on LH & LX

SEN & J pax are now invited to Hong Kong airlines lounge near the 200 gates where the flights normally depart.

I do like both the HX lounge and the SQ Lounge too! Maybe can do a quick lounge hop between the two!

Exactly, it does broaden the offer at HKG, we can go standard *A offerings or the new purchased by LH/ LX options.

It is the reason for the change, they had quite a few complaints & a few instances where the SQ lounge was overwhelmed, no seats....

Aparently the Plaza Premium First lounge is not a cheap resolution
