When I hear the words Cathay Pacific and lounge together in one sentence, my eyes usually light up, my mouth starts to drool and my thirst goes into overdrive.

After a quick check-in at Bangkok Airport for my business class flight to Hong Kong, I was looking forward to spending some time in a dedicated Cathay Pacific lounge.

The check-in agent mentioned that I should just follow the signs to get there. After security, I was guided to the lounge at the far gates (about a 15-minute walk if you can find it by yourself), but the seemingly larger Cathay lounge was closed for renovation.

In the interim, they have opened a smaller lounge closer to the D gates. It’s tiny, with maybe 30 seats and a tiny bar with limited food items and some drinks.

I did not bother to stay since I was properly hungry, so I made my way to the huge Louis’ Tavern CIP First Class Lounge instead. The food there was surprisingly good and the WiFi was fast.

That was a first for me – I’ve never before left a premium carrier business class lounge for a Priority Pass lounge (it’s usually the other way around).
