Review: EVA Air Lounge, Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK)

Summer Trip Flying EVA Air Business Class on 777 & Hello Kitty Jet, Singapore Airlines Suites & Cathay Pacific First Class

Last summer, I travelled to the Philippines for the 70th birthday celebration of my father. It was a very short visit since I needed to be back home for work. I've always wanted to try EVA Air's Hello Kitty Jet so I booked my flight from Stockholm to Fukuoka using Avianca Lifemiles flying with SAS and EVA Air. From Fukuoka, I flew on a budget carrier to Tokyo, and from Tokyo I flew on Singapore Airlines Suites to Singapore, and then first class to Manila using my Kris Flyer Miles. On my way back to Stockholm, I flew on Cathay Pacific First Class and Finnair Business Class using my AA Advantage Miles. This trip allowed me to test EVA Air Hello Kitty, Singapore Suites and Cathay Pacific First Class all for the first time and I couldn't be more satisfied.

CONCLUSION

This is a newly renovated lounge which opened last April 20 so everything looks very fresh and new. I was able to visit the old lounge in January last year and no doubt it was very different from how it looks now. If you have been to the EVA Air Infinity Lounge in Taipei, then this lounge would not be new for you as they are almost the same with all the neon lights. The food selection (Chinese, Western and Thai) was very good as you would expect from the lounges in Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport. It is a good thing that there is a section of the lounge where you can sit which is "less decorated" in case you don't like these extravagant stuff. Overall, a very nice lounge very unique in Suvarnabhumi Airport.
