Stick your head in the SQ lounge first. Its free to do so - unless you arrive at a time its packed to the rafters or you are desperate for a shower, its perfectly acceptable.I'm transiting Singapore (T3) in two weeks flying whY as VA Gold and am tossing up whether to use the KrisFlyer lounge or make use of my Priority Pass to access the SATS/dnata lounges. Any thoughts?
It's about the same price for access to the swimming pool, which has showers.I ended up paying $16 at the Ambassador lounge for a shower.
While I do like the SilverKris Lounge in SIN, the Gold one is perfectly adequate. There are comfortable seats, you're out of the throngs of people in the terminal, food and drink are available (admittedly the food is not awesome but it does) and you can charge your phone etc
Toilets are in close proximity - probably just as a close as walking one end of a lounge to the other.
Showers - if I really want one then I go to the Transit Lounge and pay for one and take a lot longer than I would with a lounge shower.
I don't see the fault being with VA but rather SQ - they would be the one saying no to allowing access I'd guess (when you compare it to having access to First Lounge with EY in AUH).
Delta don’t operate a lounge at LHR, that’s why she was refused access.I suppose the quality of the lounges is at the discretion of the providing airline so my comment is less about the lounge itself and more about the access.
My wife was today refused access to a lounge at Heathrow by Delta. She was travelling on a Virgin Atlantic ticket but flying on a Delta codeshare. So what is the rule on airport lounge. Obviously it's impossible to contact Velocity at the time to sort it out so it's easier to walk away and grumble
