Yum cha trolleys with dim sum and a barbecue pork bar (pictured) are among the locally flavoured delights on offer in Qantas’s new Hong Kong international lounge, which opened earlier this month. The lounge echoes the style of the airline’s Singapore lounge, opened a year ago, with consulting chef Neil Perry designing menus based on his Rockpool and Spice Temple restaurants. Qantas says that as all its flights from Hong Kong to Australia are overnight, passengers appreciate the opportunity to eat before they fly and so maximise their sleep on board. The airline has also partnered with Sofitel to provide a hosted experience for those in first class and premium one Qantas frequent flyers. The service includes shirt pressing and shoe shining.
