The Skyteam lounge at HKG was my destination on the layover after arriving from Dallas, TX on American flight 125 American Airlines Flagship First Class, 777-300, Dallas, TX (DFW) to Hong Kong, SAR China (HKG), Picture Review and before the departure to Bangkok, Thailand on Kenya Airways, a Skyteam member.
The lounge is located in Terminal 1 near Gate 15. It is below the concourse level.
First and business Class passengers traveling on, or connecting to/from, a same-day international flight operated by a SkyTeam member airline have access to the lounge. Regardless of their travel class, SkyTeam Elite Plus members traveling on, or connecting to/from, a same-day international flight operated by a SkyTeam member airline have access to a lounge. SkyTeam Elite Plus members can invite a guest traveling on a SkyTeam member airline operated flight.
The lounge is over 1,000 square meters in size. Hours of operation (which can change based on airlines schedules) are 05:30 – 01:00 daily. The lounge has showers, wifi, business center, a noodle bar (a popular Asian amenity) and even a yoga room.
The dining area has tables, a noodle bar and a long buffet with salads, fruit, hot entrees among other items.
The main seating area is behind the dining area.
Bathrooms are basic but clean.
The Skyteam Lounge at HKG is a nice business-class lounge. It is relatively new, the wifi is good, electrical outlets are plentiful, food and beverages are above average especially when considering the noodle bar, and it has a yoga room for those wanting to do a little stretching before a flight.
