CONCLUSION

This lounge reminded me of Cathay Pacific's own lounge at London Heathrow Airport althought this one is much smaller and that there is no separate first class lounge here. Comparing this lounge to the neighboring American Airlines Admirals Club, I thought this lounge has more spacious seating and that the buffet offering is slightly better. There is also the famous Noodle Bar which is very popular to Cathay Pacific's passengers. There is also complimentary wifi throughout the lounge. Overall, this is a very nice lounge worth visiting if you have access.
