Cathay Pacific The Pier First Class Lounge

After missing my connecting flight to London Heathrow, I was rebooked by Cathay Pacific on their A350 flight to Amsterdam leaving after midnight. I had 9 hours with me so I decided to just spend it in the Cathay Pacific The Pier First Class Lounge which was not bad at all 😉

Then, I stayed in one of their day rooms, with the view of no less than Emirates A380 😍

I thought I´d skip the dinner service on the plane so I went back to the Dining Room to order the Wagyu Beef Cheese Burger before heading to the departure gate.
