Lounge Review: First Class Lounge No. 77 Shanghai Pudong Airport (PVG)

I’ve previously reviewed the No. 69 and No. 68 (Cathay Pacific) lounges in Shanghai, but on my most recent layover in Shanghai, I decided to visit No. 77 because it had been recently renovated. I accessed this lounge via Priority Pass.

My first impressions were that this lounge is really quite nice. There’s tons and tons of seating (I don’t know why there’s so much since I can’t imagine it getting even close to full), and the furniture all seems pretty nice. Lots of outlets near chairs and a variety of seating areas (e.g. if you want a table to work on, couches, lounger to rest).

The food options in the lounge aren’t as nice as the decor, in my opinion. While they have a decent variety of food options (some hot dishes, dim sum, salads, fruits, pastries, sandwiches), the food was not particularly appetizing. Part of this is due to the lack of turnover of the food, as the lounge was really not very busy, so it seemed like a lot of the food had been sitting out for a while.

Also, strangely, the desserts were in a glass case, but you couldn’t access them yourself. If you wanted a dessert, you had to ask someone behind the bar to get one for you. I’m not sure why this is.

Physically, this is a great renovation, and I think that this lounge is nicer than the No. 68 and No. 69 lounges. But it’s still not a particularly noteworthy lounge, so I wouldn’t go out of my way to visit.

    I was there a few weeks ago and was pleasantly surprised. The food was better than the stuff I had at the Hyatt on the Bund, which is quite sad. It was a bit busy, so the food was pretty fresh. Did you try the fish ball noodle soup? They serve it at the noodle stand next to the check-in counter. Good stuff, especially if you like the broth.
