This new lounge, esp the suites, looks gorgeous. Can't wait for my next connection in HKG.

If PH ICN, OZ F A380, and DMZ, aren't enough for you for a night in Seoul, that'd be your loss.

More for us!

You always have one trip in general  planned, or one to or through HKG? I have plans to visit HKG in Jan. Will you be there before then?

Don't have one before then, but to access this lounge you'd have to be ex-HKG. Are you?

Just booked:

JFK-DXB-SYD in EK F



Now to figure out a way back...

Perhaps SYD-AUH-DOH in EY F and J and then QR F DOH-LHR? Problem is I have no good way to get home from LHR... maybe VS Y?  :o

How about flying through HKG with CX. Can't really go wrong with that and you can see the new lounge.


May also help to burn some more AA before the impending deval.

As much as I'd love to fly through HKG to see the new lounge, I don't think it justifies going out of the way for (also, I'd be able to burn AA by booking EY F Apartment and QR F).

I guess the route does look a little funny, but not like you will have an unbearable plane to fly in.

It's not the routing; it's the products. To me, EY F + QR J + VS Y/AA F > CX/QF J + CX F
