Cathay Lounge in Hong Kong
Hey travel professionals. I will be travelling to HKG and TPE on Cathay in November for a mates wedding. Cathay have just released some cheaper seats than China Airlines so I get to try them out. Do they have a similar system to Qantas where you can get a complimentary invitation to their lounge in some way? Hong Kong is Cathay's hub and I am guessing also their best lounge/s. If not how do I go about getting some form of lounge access the cheapest to get me in? I can't earn silver status in time.
I flew singapore airlines last year and they lounge in SIN was FANTASTIC, how does it compare to Cathay in HKG?
Random side question, flying from TPE-HKG-BNE back. They have a set of flights with only 50m layover in HKG before my Bris flight. Would that be enough time for check in? Or because I checked in at TPE and it is a short layover it is much quicker?
