|On approach after a 15 hr flight|
Let me just take a moment here to say that it did take all 4 of us frequent flyers to collectively sort out where all we needed to go to take care of the luggage, get a shower, and catch the train. Plus, we'd all been there before. This is to say that HKG airport is big, and if you're not as familiar with the domestic terminal, its easy to get turned around. First off, there’s no arrivals lounge available for Oneworld emeralds unless you’re on CX in Business or First. However, there is a Priority Pass lounge past immigration between terminals one and two, in ‘the tunnel.’ It's a basic Plaza Premium lounge, not nearly up to par with Cathay's real lounges on the departures side, but for this brand of lounge it was sufficient for a quick stop. It's also close…ish…to where the luggage storage is.
Just so you know, if you’re looking for the storage place, follow signs for “left luggage.” Yes, this will be slightly hilarious to the jetlagged. “Left luggage….not right luggage….get it??” Come on, that’s funny…right? The prices are pretty reasonable, about US $8 for our 5 hours for each bag, and the process was easy. They take cards and you pay when you pick up your things. Totally worth it not to have to drag a rollaboard each around the city.
