Philippine Airlines Lounge in Hong Kong

In Hong Kong Philippine Airlines shares the CNAC VIP Lounge with several airlines. I took an economy flight to Hong Kong last August and I was surprised to get an invitation to use the lounge in Hong Kong thanks to my new Mabuhay Miles Elite card which I got for free from Allied Bank’s World MasterCard.

I thought that I could use the lounge in Manila only. I love my new Mabuhay Miles Elite card. I even got an extra 10 kg. baggage allowance which I put to good use.

The CNAC VIP lounge is very modern and quite big.

You can actually see if the Philippine Airlines’ plane has arrived because the gate they usually use (gate 16-18) is just across this lounge.

You can use their PCs or plug in your own laptop and access the airport’s free wifi.

Relax or snooze in style with these lounge chairs.

Don’t bother with this machine. The coffee and hot chocolate it dispensed was crap.

What’s new in this lounge is the kakaaliw automatic pancake maker.

Just push a button and a fresh mini pancake will come out in 60 seconds.

It’s a joy to wait in this lounge just reading newspapers and magazines and when your flight is ready to board you just walk leisurely to the gate. Plus the bathrooms are clean and they also have shower facilities.

  1. Talaga just show your card and they let you in? Did you show your mabuhay miles elite upon check in or you can flash your card and  walk into the lounge anytime and they’ll let you in? All the while i didnt know you can use the credit card even if you are flying economy ;-(
