Default HKG SKL Reopen after Refurb

I thought this had already been posted on here but I couldn't see it.

Seems they have finally listened to one of the biggest complaints about the place.

I was there in Feb and was on a delay, missing connection in SIN - receptionist suggested I went to Thai lounge instead...its was much much nicer, although the shower wasnt so good but better than no shower at all!!

The old one had really good showers and I was surprised to notice that they had gone!!

*G pax got their status for next to nothing. They're not worth paying attention to and thus do not deserve such a luxury.

Good to know this. Next, they should just remove the F section of that lounge if they are not going to do anything with it.

I do not think u r able to access any *A lounge upon arrival, as all the lounges are in the departure level. HKG and SIN are different; arriving and departing passengers will never get to meet in the sterile area.

i think only CX has got a arrival lounge in HKG?

The TG lounge is far better than the SKL, unfortunately it's at the opposite end of the terminal.

Having said that, I am sure I read on here not long ago that it's the best designed airport in the world so I am sure you will be able to get there and back with ease, and without using a Skytrain.

Well here's a preview of a new rant. I've just flown thru 3 US airports and can say that HKG security was run at a far higher level of shambolic incompetence this morning. TSA has nothing on these people.

AT LEAST 500 pax from various arriving flights were expected to pass thru ONE x-ray scanner to get thru transit security back to the departure level. Plus some 20 year old trainee scrutinizing everything on the monitor...

45 minutes in line.
