Xi’an airport Terminal 3 is the home of SkyTeam members China Southern and China Eastern. The latter operates two lounges, situated in either wing of the terminal. The China Eastern V1 Lounge is located a stone throw’s away from security, before gate H10 (follow the signs to “First Class Lounge 1.”) Alternatively, the V2 Lounge in the East Concourse can be found in the vicinity of gate H40. Both clubs welcome China Eastern premium and Elite Plus passengers.
V36 China Eastern Lounge XIY design
The China Eastern V1 Lounge at Xi’an airport Terminal 3 boasts a traditional design, which has a touch of local flavor but isn’t especially appealing to the modern eye. The space is littered with haphazardly placed vases of fake flowers, TV monitors, drink coolers, and even shipping boxes; and the color scheme—a red carpet which clashes with electric blue upholstery and granite partitions—is definitely an acquired taste.
Adding to the chaotic ambiance is the constant stream of PA announcements, the TVs playing at full blast, the noise bleeding from the terminal, and the flow of guests in relatively tight quarters: the seating area is pretty compact and the dining and buffet area severely under-dimensioned. Per local customs, the club is kept pretty warm.
The lounge does have its appeal, though. The space boasts high ceilings, huge floor-to-ceiling windows with views on the tarmac, and all seats are equipped with side tables power outlets.
A partially isolated quiet zone to the left of the reception area provides a partial reprieve from the hectic ambiance. There is also slightly more private seating by the windows.
V36 China Eastern Lounge XIY amenities
The China Eastern V1 Lounge at Xi’an airport Terminal 3 features a remarkable line-up of amenities for domestic travel, with an especially strong food and beverage offering.
A hot buffet is available at all times. The selection includes snacks, soups, hot entrees, and desserts including tasty rice cakes with honey. In addition, there is a noodle bar serving classics such as beef noodle soup, freshly prepared on demand. Should there be a wait, guests are issued a buzzer that vibrates when their meal is ready. It’s only unfortunate that there is so little space in the dining area.
Drink coolers with bottled water, juices, and soda are located throughout the space, and patrons will also find tea, instant coffee, and a limited alcoholic beverage selection with beer and two bottles of wine.
A serviceable bathroom with a shower room is located near the buffet area. The facilities could use a makeover, but the availability of a shower at a domestic lounge is always appreciated.
Other amenities include two VIP rooms, a depressing smoking room near the bathroom, and a selection of newspapers and magazines.
V36 China Eastern Lounge XIY bottom line
The China Eastern V1 Lounge at Xi’an airport Terminal 3 is a functional lounge with a solid range of amenities, including an all-day hot buffet and showers, which is notable for a domestic club. On the other hand, the physical space is underwhelming. The club feels cluttered and disorganized, and some portions of the lounge like the smoking room are downright sad. Time permitting, consider going to the China Eastern V2 Lounge, which offers a substantially superior experience.
