Cathay Pacific the Pier First Class Lounge

After flying from London to Hong Kong in Premium Economy, I had a few hours transit time in Hong Kong and visited the Cathay Pacific The Pier First Class Lounge before my onward flight to Manila. I had access to the lounge thru my British Airways gold status which is one of my favorite One World emerald benefits 😍

This Warm Chocolate Fondant with Vanilla bean sauce was phenomenal 😋😋

I also had time to take shower in one of their shower suites.

  1. Are premier economy passenger allowed to use the Cathay Pacific Lounge in Hong Kong?

    1. Hi. As far as I know, only business class, first class and passengers with status can access their lounges. The reason I could access the First Class Lounge in Hong Kong is because I have OneWorld Emerald status. You can check out this link:
