Long-haul flights do really wear out our bodies very easily. Lack of sleep and lack of mobility on a 16 hour flight took its toll on me as I stumble haggardly early in the morning at The Pier - one of Cathay Pacific's business class lounges at Chep Lap Kok airport in Hong Kong. I didn't even go to the food section where I always order a bowl of wonton soup whenever I'm here. All I needed was just a cool, refreshing shower. I headed straight there and the shower attendant, gracious as always, escorted me right away to one of the several shower rooms available.the shower room
Once I closed the door, I felt a relief in my seclusion. The bathroom has proven itself again to be a pleasant escape in this humongous airport. Equipped with a rain shower head and Dermalogica skin care products, it is another way of pampering Cathay Pacific and other One World alliance passengers. Arrive In Better Shape used to be Cathay Pacific's advertising campaign. Since I can't afford flying First Class on Emirates A380 with its onboard showers, a shower inside a connecting airport at least can help me achieve that.
