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?

    50 minutes is doable, but you wouldn't want to make a mistake. The arrivals usually have a train leg, but they come often. I would check the standard departure gates and look at the airport map, because it's huge.

    They don't hand out lounge passes like QF unfortunately. The closest way is finding someone who's MPC gold and willing to comp you in or find a MPC silver and pay 9k AM points to get you in.

    Is there a way to utilise the Qantas Lounge in Sydmey if I'm flying out on Cathay? Cathay and Qantas are part of the oneworld alliance but I always thought I needed a Qantas or Jetstar ticket/flight code to access the lounge.
