China-Chengdu Airport

This is a series meant to help you find the best of the best in lounges everywhere.

Our 12-year-old, Jack has become a lounger-extraordinaire. He knows how to get the most out of any lounge experience and always manages to get our full money’s worth out of any visit. As a result, we have come up with a lounge rating system according to our very discerning lounge critic. Enjoy, and may you too achieve lounge nirvana!  

Jack’s Rating System

1 (worst)—5 (best) 






Overall Score


Chengdu Airport

1st Class lounge by gate 125

(Priority Pass)

Ambiance: 3

Comfort: 4

Sustenance: 1

Bathrooms: n/a



Very light prepackaged snacks were provided, some of which were lemon Oreos (score). This is the only reason our young critic even gave the sustenance score a measely 1 point. Were it not for the yummy cookies, the overall score of this lounge would have dropped significantly. Jack was not very impressed, especially because there were no in-lounge bathrooms or massaging chairs available (yes, he is completely spoiled by certain lounge amenities).
