China-Shanghai Pudong Airport T1

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


Shanghai-Pudong Airport

Terminal 1-Lounge 37

(Priority Pass)

Ambiance: 2IMG_0313

Comfort: 2IMG_0314

Sustenance: 2IMG_0318

Bathrooms: 0



According to Jack, this lounge provides just the basics. Overall not very impressive. Comfort was rated a 2 because it did have comfortable chairs but no working power ports. Sustinance was sub-par but was granted a 2 because of the “delicious prepackaged sandwiches”. I guess he liked them because by the time we left, Jack had eaten 13! Bathrooms are just a very dated small single stall and honestly you would be better off using the bathrooms outside the lounge.
