Apart from the CX F Area, I'd say that the Qantas Lounge is superior to the CX F Lounge. When the CX lounges get crowded, it gets really crowded and even rather stuffy. The Qantas Lounge, being much brighter doesn't exude the same feeling. And the brilliant bar and sit down menu is definitely a plus on QF's side.

Love QF!

I disagree, the QF lounge can also get super busy. People were very sprawled out in the QF lounge, so on my initial visit there wasn't anywhere to sit(it was much quieter 90 minutes later) For me the only minus point of the CX lounge was how warm it was( perhaps due to the amount of windows).

Both lounges are really nice , with super nice staff and are way way better than the BA lounge offerings.

No - not in my experience.

Was first there around the end of March biding my time for an AY flight around 17:30. There were only salads and cold-cuts available with staff assuring that the hot food resumed at 18:00.

Hi, thanks for the response. I visited myself in may and you are spot on. Though they did have some small jacket pots and maybe some chilli con carne as well. The offerings in the nearby Cathay lounge were more than sufficient.

Incidentally, The Qantas lounge ( as with other lounges in Hong Kong and Singapore ) does get extremely busy. Especially if there are a bank of one world flights and a few Quantas flights departing within the next 2 hours. Great lounge though.

Why would anyone with OWE status bother with the QF lounge? It's typically Qantas. I much prefer the BA F lounge, or even the CX lounge.

Cocktails, better food options (although arguably only if you're there at the right time of day), better showers, nicer bathrooms, nicer decor generally, better service - should I continue?

I don't recall seeing this posted before, so the rather short First / Chairman's Lounge / Platinum One wine list below (from a trip a few months ago):
