Skyteam Lounge Review – Hong Kong Airport

Korean Air lounges are generally not very inspiring. Even their flagship lounges in Seoul are fairly pedestrian, and their U.S. lounges are abysmal for an Asian carrier. Their Hong Kong lounge used to be a bit boxy feeling and not especially impressive in terms of its amenities. Last...

Delta Skymiles new unpublished fares mileage accrual
