Isn’t the answer “it depends”? Local regulations and/ or what’s realistic with lounge budgets can make it effective impossible.

KLM have testing setup at their Schiphol clinic which for me is quite convenient and apparently gets results within 48 hours, so will plan to use that when necessary (which for me is anytime I want...

You'll get better answers with a bit more context. There's an awful lot of different Dubai Marriott hotels. What are you looking for? I'd start with purpose of trip, how much you want to pay and what...

I keep trying fashionable Northern or Western Chinese cuisines, but I tend to come back to the elegance of Cantonese every time.

Back to the original question, my very favourite Chinese foods would probably be:

I've been aiming for 1F (or their long-haul equivalents) on flights in general recently. You're apparently mainly at risk by people up to 2 rows ahead and behind you, so if you don't have anyone...
