With Terminal 4 being operational since 31 October 2017, Cathay Pacific finally have a lounge they can call their own. It is located on the second level, just opposite Plaza Premium Lounge. The design and colour scheme is very similar to other Cathay Lounges (especially compared to The Deck in HKIA). The lounge itself isn’t big, it has a dedicated dining area near the entrance and a separate lounge area further in.

One of the best use of British Airways Avios is for short haul/regional flights. For my March trip, I spent 7500 Avios for one way Club Europe between London and Munich. Intra-Asia flights are also a good way to use your Avios, where a one way Business Class from Singapore to Hong Kong cost only 20,000 Avios (vs 30,000 for Asia Miles prior to devaluation). The tax cost about SGD $50-60 per person.
I intended to redeem the SIN-HKG direct flight but due to mistake on my part, I did not manage to get the ticket on time and the availability was gone by the time I tried to redeem it. Hence, I ended up with CX 711 that flies thru Bangkok.
