The Lounge

Upon leaving Singapore on Cathay through the years, with its not so convenient location in terminal 4, and the only OneWorld lounge in the terminal, I end up going to the First/Business lounge pre-flight to have a comfortable seat and some food.

Given that it is a combined lounge, I wasn't expecting it to be too fancy. But it is in Singapore, so I should have known better. It had a very well-appointed dining area and large seating area above the entire terminal. It also had better alcohol for mixers than the First Class lounges in Hong Kong

Dining Area

The dining area has a lunch counter type facility with sushi, noodles and burgers. The chefs are in plain sight, taking your order and crafting your meal.


There is a buffet/snack area that carries sodas, food of many kinds, treats, and tea. It's for people who don't have time to sit down and order a meal. The food is good, just lacks the presentation value of the dining area.
Ample, open seating abounds Work/Eating bench seating And if you forgot your laptop/ipad/etc? Does anyone anymore? Still a nice thing to have Booth and communal table seating (like at a real noodle bar) Tons of seats, this almost got half full at the busiest time All kinds of food, I just wasn't in the mood at 11:30 at night as red eye flights are very popular to Hong Kong from here Drinking in 2019, that Hennessy is sketchy Years later, not much has changed, but at least my Goose is there for my drink Sodas and mix-ins, plus some beer which I generally ignore and Moet champagne for those that partake Snacks, light fare And where Rob usually picks something of high sugar content to go with his drink. Yes, my liver hates me.


This is a very nice lounge with plenty of space so you never feel crowded. The level of service for a satellite lounge is really good especially with the drinks available. Asia definitely has a class system, but it is based on income and not circumstances of birth, as evidenced by the offerings in this lounge.
