Singapore Airlines’s Private Room is the best lounge I have visited. While flying Emirates, I missed out on the lounge in Dubai because my connection was in business though I did enter an alternative first class lounge. Cathay Pacific whether it be in business or first is the go to lounge of choice. Along with the usual showers, open bar, and food, Cathay’s The Wing First Class Lounge features a Champagne Bar with never-ending bubbly.
My only regret was arriving at the lounge later than I should have. Though I enjoyed the à la carte breakfast, I was a bit rushed and couldn’t go back to the champagne retreat.

The most important question: what brand champagne was it? I was impressed that The Wing’s business class lounge served Moet, and The Bridge served Piper Heidsieck.
Good question. It was MOET which for first class lounge is weak.
Cathay business in both lounge and flights which I’m about to write are so similar that it is pointless to opt for first.
I’m sure someone will jump on me for saying that but the champagne speaks to my point!
