I used to feel uncomfortable about taking photos of First Class or Business Class travel, even though I use points, because I felt it was flaunty. ( I had to get over that since my blog focuses on travel.) I have now decided that excellent flights with exceptional service and interesting lounge design should be recognized and included in my blog in the same way an innovative restaurant or beautiful architecture should be.
I flew from Manila to San Diego with a 5 hour layover in Hong Kong via Cathay Pacific (thank you American Airlines points) The journey was one of the highlights of my holiday trip. Here are some photos....
My first stop was the Cathay Pacific lounge in the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) in Manila which was opened in May 2015 and meant to look like a domestic space. I felt like I was in a Danish Modern, Mad Men style living room and I love the wood walls (I am not sure what type of wood) which looks like teak. I was surprised and how nice the lounge is.
