Cathay Pacific Business Class Review Hong Kong (HKG) to Bahrain (BAH) via Dubai (DXB) A330 CX 745

After my 10-day ‘layover’ in Hong Kong (and after exploring Phnom Penh and Hanoi), I was curious to see how much I’d like the A330 configuration for Cathay Pacific Business Class. I decided to use the Terminal 1 lounge across from Gate 4 – ‘The Wing’ – and to my surprise it was rather empty that […]

Review: Asiana Business Class Lounge Seoul

Review: Asiana Business Class Lounge Seoul

I have been to the Asiana Business Class lounge at Seoul, Incheon several times now and always come out with mixed feelings. It's a huge room that mostly resembles a United Club.
