Lounge Review: Premium Lounge (Terminal 2) - Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport (CAN)

Terminal 2 of Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport (CAN) is a relatively new addition to the third busiest airport in China. Officially opened back in April 2018, this 600,000 sqm space is home to China Southern Airlines but more importantly, a brand new lounge (accessible via Priority Pass) that I was meaning to check out — Premium Lounge. My flight from Guangzhou back to Singapore was on Singapore Airlines and it was conveniently departing from the relatively-new Terminal 2 of the airport.

Lounge Review: British Airways Lounge and Concorde Bar - Singapore Changi Airport (SIN)

I have been to The Qantas Singapore Lounge on many occasions and it is probably one of my favourite airport lounges in Singapore. The quality of food is good, the interiors are beautiful, there is a proper bar (that does solid cocktails) and the lounge will also be expanding this year to cater for more premium cabin guests. Since my last visit to the British Airways Lounge and Concorde Bar was during the peak hours, I was not able to get a decent shot of the interiors and as such, I have decided to drop by the airport a little earlier to check out the BA lounge next door.

Qantas is now Offering Me 7,000 Points or Two Business Lounge Passes for Damaged Business Class Seat

As you may already know, on my flight from Singapore to Brisbane, my seat in Business Class was unable to recline fully on an overnight flight and after reaching out to the Qantas Customer Care team, I was being offered 5,000 Qantas Points ‘as a gesture of goodwill’. While my flight was a commercial ticket (meaning to say, I paid good money for it), it is worth noting that a redemption in the same cabin class will cost 60,000 Qantas Points one way - therefore, 5,000 Points is definitely not a reasonable compensation amount in my opinion. After replying that 5,000 Qantas Points is unreasonable, I have now gotten a counter offer for 7,000 Qantas Points or have my QFF account credited with two Business Lounge passes.
