I recently flew Cathay’s 5th freedom flight from Vancouver to New York and I got to experience their newish Vancouver lounge. The lounge opened on my 4th 2016 so it’s still quite a new space.

The lounge has seating for 105 people and is approximately 510 sqaure meters, while I was visiting there were probably a maximum of  20 people in there which meant is was very quiet and peaceful.

The lounge is open from 10.30 am to 3.00 pm and 8.00 pm to 2.00 am. It can be accessed First & Business Class passengers on Cathay Pacific and Oneworld Emerald and Sapphire members.

The lounge was desgined by firm Studioilse, they work closely with Cathay. They’ve done most of Cathay’s lounges and here’s a few I had reviewed in the past. London Business & First loungeThe Pier First Lounge and the new Pier Business Lounge In Hong Kong.

The lounge has a large amount of very comfortable seating and at each side-table there are USB ports and powerpoints, something Cathay do well and they understand passengers want power.

The best seats in the lounge has to be the ones at the window, they have a direct view overlooking the ramp and runway and have the side tables with power, what more could you want?

Bottom Line

The lounge is very similar and consistent with their other combined Business Class lounges. The Noodle Bar is always great, there is plenty of seating available, the wifi is fast and there is power easily accessible.
