WorldClub has closed in HKG

Just found out that NW has closed their WorldClub location in Hong Kong, and has contracted with a common-use lounge called the Hong Kong Lounge. This is similar to other international cities, where a shared lounge is available to WorldClub members.

The fine print states the Hong Kong Lounge may be used by WC Members from 6am to 9am only, and ONLY if you are traveling on NW18 that day.

That is a terrible shame. I used to enjoy visiting the HKG lounge in the late morning after the flight had left and feeding on the leftover snacks!

I think a long time ago NWA contracted with Cathay to use the Pier and Wing lounges. I wish that still were the case.

I will miss the satay MH always provided.

What is going to happen to KL and MH, any news?

Soon we will all be sitting in the SkyTeam lounge.....

Prior to the closure of the HKG WC, did NW accept the CO PC club passes for admittance? I have used the CO passes at DTW & MSP, but never overseas. I was unsure if there were any limitations imposed based on it being an international city, but I wouldn't think so.

Also, if HKG is closed now, and they contract with someone else, any chance of showing a CO pass for admittance into that contracting airline's room based on it being a NW WC? Seems doubtful, but unsure.
