WiFi is dreadfully slow in the LHR CCR too. Damn good breakfast though!

I agree with some of the posters here. A CX F / DM+ room similar to the BA CCR would be nice to have in HKG.

True - The CX F amenity kits have gone downhill in the past few years. I rarely use the contents but I do use the bags. The lastest one is just too small to be useful. Fortunately I still have a...

I agree, PVG is great for KA op-ups and my observation is they tend to do this at the gate by writing on the BP. But there are tons of MPC members flying out of here - the lines of F/J and MPC pax...

As an aside, I find the CX/KA check-in agents at PVG to be very accommodating and will let me change to an...
