Hong Kong Airport Lounge Airbus A330

7 September 2011

Hong Kong Airport

Today is a day full of travel.
Most people dread the thought but I love it. I wake up early, excited, cause I am going to the airport.
At the 'in town check in' in Kowloon, the first class check in lady proudly tells me they have managed to change my flight to one 3 hours earlier direct to Seoul. She seems very pleased with herself to offer such great service.
Unfortunately for her, I have deliberately picked flights that will see me arrive at the airport 3 hours early, and transit via Taipei with a 3 hour stopover.
When I tell her to change it back, she is extremely apologetic and tells me she hates airports. I thought to myself she has a very strange job if thats the case.

Onwards to the airport on the express train, and I had to stop and do some urgent secret work before I could go through to customs, luckily their free wifi even in the departure hall is excellent.

Going through customs, I again had to explain why I look so different to my passport picture, the girl asked me what my diet secret was. I told her 'stop eating', of course she looked like a 10 year old boy anyway so I dont know what she needed to know for.

Waiting for my flight was pleasent, with the full dim sum buffet, view out the window and wandering around checking out the planes waiting at the gates.
I have tried to keep photos to a bare minimum, cause I know that NO ONE CARES (stop emailing me to tell me no one cares).

The view out of 'The Wing'. I actually dont like this place as much as the business class lounges, cause in here you have to ask a waiter for everything rather than have self service.

My plane to Taipei, Airbus A330. On the inside it was very old, still had ash trays in the seat dividers. Had the front row in economy again, and the cabin staff manager fussed over me non stop (must have been the only high status passenger on board). She kept bringing me things from the business class cabin I might like, wines, spirits etc. Eventually I asked for a diet coke having declined one off the cart, and when it came, in a real glass with ice instead of the can like I would have preferred, there was also a bowl of hot nuts and an after dinner mint I didnt ask for.
This perplexed not only me but all the passengers around me. When the plane landed all the staff thanked me by name. Very annoying!
