I know that MNL is pretty poor all round, and I was there with KE.

The so-called First Class lounge is dire. Grim, ill-lit, unwelcoming, almost no choice of drinks or food and the most uncomfortable seating - even dentists have better waiting rooms!

Is that a SkyTeam lounge though? Or just a third party lounge? Most third party lounges, especially in Asia, are pretty bad.

No Skyteam lounge in MNL.

I have to agree that ST lounges are not at the same level as OW or *A lounges. Although others have mentioned that KE lounges in ICN and DL lounges in ATL are some of the best ST lounges, I wasn't very impressed. I think they are decent lounges, but not places I would go out of my way to visit unless I had a long layover.

I doubt anyone would make such a blanket statement covering all DL lounges in ATL... I haven't made it to the new one in terminal B but it's highly regarded, as are SFO and JFK T4. ATL E & F are also pretty nice.

I am certainly not among the ones who have said that.
KE J lounges at ICN are poor (the one near gate 11) to average (the one near gates 100+). And for ATL DL lounges, I would qualify them as very decent but certainly nothing to write home about. I was very disappointed by the concourse F one when it opened (and still now), because it was supposed to be a flagship one serving long-haul flights exclusively, but I found it quite small and not so nice with very limited food offering (as usual with DL). The only super top aspect of F lounge is the outside terrace.
