Cathay Pacific is one airline that offers great lounges throughout the world, and their lounges have made it on to the top ten Skytrax Airline Awards list in both the business class and first class categories.
One of their top lounges is the first and business class lounge in San Francisco International Airport (SFO). It is a comfortable and classy place to relax or get work done before a flight. From noodle bars and to showers, the lounge has 60 percent more space for passengers since the remodel in 2016.

After the remodel, the lounge is able to accommodate about 175 travelers in a space measuring 9,220 square feet. The lounge also received an aesthetic makeover by adding walls made out of granite, surfaces made from bamboo that are sparse throughout, and windows offering extensive views of the outdoors, which also provides the Cathay Pacific business class lounge tons of natural light. It was a huge improvement and a much-needed one as well.
Feeling hungry? One of the most loved aspects of the lounge is the Noodle Bar, serving fresh soups for those who love a good, warm Asian dish. The lounge also offers a buffet with a variety of dishes, as well as a deli counter. And for those who love espresso, a coffee machine is there to provide you with all the caffeine you would ever need. Those who are looking to pair their meal with a drink can do so as there are chilled beers and sodas available, and hard liquor too.
Ready to charge up and get down to business? Cathay Pacific business class lounge has lots of power sockets (both AC and USB) to keep all your devices at 100 percent. There are also wonderful workspaces called Solus, which are more private than a basic open table and chair. They are curved and closed off, giving you 180 degrees or so of exclusivity.
Don’t worry. For those of you traveling long distances, Cathay Pacific business class lounge is equipped with shower suites to freshen up before your next flight.
Travelers holding a first class or business class ticket, or are a frequent flyer that holds a Platinum or Gold status, can access the club. Just recently, those of you that are flying in business or first class on Qantas also have the ability to utilize this lounge, rather than the unfavorable Air France/KLM lounge.
