Time for something different as I look at the brand new Cathay Pacific Lounge at Heathrow Airport.
There is a lift to the lounge as it is on to upper floor. Except on the day I visited, the lifts weren’t working as intended, and it took the Cathay Pacific ground staff time to figure out what was going on. A bit of a service failure there.

A manned bar is offered too. A nice touch. And yes, they do have champagne behind the bar – you just have to ask.
There’s also plenty of seating options – some of which face put onto the tarmac

I’ll be interested in how this lounge is performing a month down the line… and I intend to pay another visit in January…
