Review: Cathay Pacific First Class Lounge, London Heathrow Terminal 3, London, United Kingdom


Accessing the Lounge:

Getting in the full experience, after MrsWT73’s spa treatment at the BA Elemis Spa, and her own G+T at the Qantas Lounge, we headed over to the Cathay Pacific Lounge. Accessing the lounge was permitted via the Class of Service on our One World Ticket. The Cathay Lounge was right next door. It had somewhat of a hidden entrance, this time up an elevator and to an immediate reception desk. We were pleasantly welcomed and invited over to the first class side.

“The Cathay Pacific First Class Lounge London Heathrow is a pleasant space and it’s visitors’ know it. It has a compact foot print and is a little overshadowed by the more spacious Qantas Business Lounge next door that offers more room and a full bar”

Inside the Cathay Pacific First Class Lounge:

There must be lots of One World Emeralds in here since there was virtually no where to sit. It was about the same size as the old Cathay Pacific Lounge in Vancouver but almost fully occupied. There was also a CX flight to HK leaving at around the same time .

We eventually found a lounger and view by the window. There were self pour options for drink. I got MrsWT73 a Moet champagne and a Ruckus Champagne flagged with 2 royal warrants for myself. There was no manned bar but signs indicating a full bar was available in the business class lounge around the corner.

Food and Beverage:

I was still feeling a little off so I went for some comfort food in the restaurant while MrsWT73 read a Hello Magazine. There were lots of things on offer, but I was just looking for a little comfort food. I was able to have Won Tun Noodles in Soup and it really hit the spot.

In Summary:

We had a short stay in the lounge and ended up leaving about 1 hour before Departed at T-60. Overall it was nice, but unfortunately it was fully packed with travelers which made it not as calming, spacious or as peaceful as the Qantas lounge. I’d probably aim for the quietness of the Qantas Business Lounge over this place as my favourite One World location in Terminal 3.
