Cathay Pacific "The Pier" First Class Lounge Hong Kong

In June this year, after a period of renovations, Cathay reopened "The Pier" first class lounge at Hong Kong airport. I made a point of checking it out on my recent trip prior to a Cathay Pacific flight to Singapore. I was flying in business class but courtesy of oneworld Emerald status I was invited into the first class lounge. It just so happened my flight was leaving from a gate almost right opposite the lounge too, which made it very convenient.

The lounge is split into various zones. I first visited the restaurant area:

Singapore Airlines New First Class on the Boeing 777-300ER : SQ2 Singapore to Hong Kong

After a pleasant stay in The Private Room at Changi, I headed to the gate for SQ2 to San Francisco via Hong Kong. I was taking only the first leg today, but since this is a long haul flight the latest generation 2013 product is offered on board. Today's flight was operated by Boeing 777-300 ER 9V-SWW, delivered to Singapore Airlines in March 2014 which made her 20 months old at the time of this flight.

Singapore Airlines : The Private Room at Changi

After arriving from Melbourne on Singapore Airlines in First Class, I had a 2 and a half hour transit at Changi Airport before flying onwards to Hong Kong. Singapore Airlines First Class and Suites passengers have access to the exclusive 'The Private Room'. Upon arrival at the SilverKris lounge and when presenting a First boarding pass you will be personally escorted through the business and first class lounge (available for those flying Star Alliance first class) and into the sanctuary of the Private Room.
