Lounge Review: Lounge Pacific Osaka Airport (KIX) North Terminal

Lounge Pacific is the lounge used by the non-JAL oneworld airlines at Osaka Kansai (KIX) airport in the North Terminal (although I think Malaysia Airlines may have since switched to the ANA lounge, but Cathay and Finnair still use Lounge Pacific). Unfortunately, there’s no JAL lounge available in the North Terminal.

The lounge is pretty basic, both in terms of amenities and furnishings. Depending on when your flight departs, the lounge can also get pretty crowded.

For food, there were some instant soups, cookies, sandwiches, and inari and crab stick sushi. In general, the service in the lounge was good, but it was very crowded, and the food wasn’t replenished quickly enough. The inari was the most popular item, but they only brought out five pieces at a time, so they were quickly snatched up.

It’s disappointing that Cathay Pacific and Finnair use this lounge rather than a JAL one, since the JAL lounges in Tokyo are some of my favorite lounges in the world. It’s fine to pass time prior to your flight, but there’s really nothing remarkable about this lounge.
