I've never departed CX from BKK before, I have an upcoming booking that has me flying CX F BKK-HKG (then returning home via CX F HKG-ORD). Now, as I think on it, I've arrived in BKK on a multitude of carriers. But I've never departed international on anything other than Star Alliance. So I have no sense of the lounges, etc. CX has its own lounge at BKK, yes? Is it the best choice? Is there any personalized service, eg escort from checkin to lounge or lounge to gate, or are you on your own throughout? I suppose it could wind up a moot point, as it could turn out that there's an aircraft swap and I could wind up in business! But any experiences appreciated.
