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.20171021_105104_resized

Overall Impression

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.

Next is the post on the Kenya Airways 787-8 business-class flight to Bangkok, Thailand.
