In the EVA lounge in BKK now. Compared with the new SilverKris in BKK exceeds in two key points. Two showers compared to none in SilverKris. Lage tarmac facing windows compared to no tarmac view at all in SK. In EVA, self serve selection of basic spirits red and white wines and self pour draught Heniken. SK drinks served by bar staff. Other hot food is good in both. Lunch just finished in EVA. Thai green curry and choice of two soups, dim sum ,salads and red velvet magnum ice creams, coffee machine. I'd rate EVA better overall than SQ SK because of showers and tarmac view. It is larger, too. P

Pleased I came but it is a hike if, like me, you are to connect on TG flight - to concourse C ( from near F&G). EVA lounge is at the end of the Terminal overlooking concourse F. Thankfully, TG offers all day check-in.

The BKK security and immigration queues outbound today were only 45 minutes collectively, compared with, the incoming last Friday of 1hr 15 wait for immigration into BKK. Thankfully I had no checked baggage. I had no priority inbound to BKK and it was a zoo.

Lesson> use your O6 status and come to BKK early if wanting to lounge hop *G a bit. Its a sobering walk from EVA lounge in concourse F to C concourse for my flight on TG. Fortunately, still 2 hours to boarding. I may drop into the SK on the way back. Cheers:D PJ
A belated thank you for the review, PJM. :)
Since my query above, I have also spent a long transit at BKK, and would agree with your assessment.

When I was there, both the EVA Lounge and the SK Lounge were all but empty during my long visits. A good shower at the former, which is a winning point over SK, no Champagne at either, food plentiful at both and frequently refreshed, despite the lack of "customers", pleasant staff at both.

In an alternate universe, there are the TG lounges. :( ventured into two of them, close to boarding time, as they were much closer to our departure gate. My horrified retreat came shortly after entry! :(

Same. Dream over.
Same here Back to Bronze
Me four... :'( I was enjoying that O6 LTWP status! I feel a little exposed now after having had matched *A SG for about as long as I can remember, thanks to TK & O6. Will have to keep a close eye out and act fast on the next *A status match offer

Cheers,
Matt.

Another one. I was hoping to be an exception as I had accrued points. Never mind.

I really should've been more careful, I miscalculated and miss getting gold with flights. Now a bunch of miles that I will use to book reward flight with TG or SQ as *S is worthless and I'm not going to get close to gold qualification this year

Me too. And this despite getting it in writing that I would drop to Gold. They're getting an abusive email. I'm tired of companies saying one thing and then doing another.

I have good news on this front.

It is indeed a soft landing.

Even better, if you are currently Diamond you will drop to Amigo Gold which is also Star Gold. I have had this confirmed by email from Avianca.

Downgraded from diamond to bronze,i just did a dummy booking on NZ with Amigo number attached and it's still allowing me to select the frequent flyer seats that are reserved for *G so I wonder how long the downgrade will take to reflect across the star alliance network

Here's the email I got from Avianca stating it would be a soft landing:

I fired off an email last night. In the past Avianca has been fairly quick to get back to me.

No soft landing from Gold. Would have appreciated *A silver.

All good things must come to an end.
