Qantas Singapore Lounge: Great Food & Service, But Crowded

Qantas Singapore Lounge: Great Food & Service But CrowdedThe Qantas Singapore Lounge is one of the most popular in the Qantas lounge network. The service is excellent, the food and drinks are great and there are plenty of showers. There’s just one problem – it can get a little too popular, leading to overcrowding and some lounge guests even being turned away at the door!

The Qantas Singapore Lounge in Terminal 1 at Changi Airport is open daily from 2.30pm to 11pm. Access is available to Business and First class passengers; Qantas Gold, Platinum and Platinum One frequent flyers; as well as Oneworld Sapphire and Emerald members; travelling on Qantas or any other Oneworld airline. Qantas Club members can also access the lounge when flying with Qantas or Jetstar. Emirates Business or First class passengers, as well as Emirates Skywards Gold and Platinum members, can also use the Qantas Singapore Lounge.

A wide selection of hot and cold buffet-style food is available. A choice of two Singapore-inspired “plates of the day” is also offered – often a noodle soup or salad. A wide range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, including cocktails, are available from the bar.

Comfortable seating is available for up to 460 people. There are also 20 well-appointed showers to help you freshen up before the overnight Qantas flights to Australia or London. But one of the best features of the Qantas Singapore Lounge is the service. The friendly and helpful lounge staff are always on hand to offer food and drink top-ups, or anything else you may need.

Although Qantas does not have a dedicated First class lounge in Singapore, extra services are also available for First class passengers and Platinum One frequent flyers.

All in all, the Qantas Singapore Lounge is one of the best in the Qantas international network. But it can get very crowded in the evening prior to the wave of Qantas flight departures to Perth, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and London. If Qantas continues to use Singapore as a hub airport, a larger lounge may be needed.

The good news is that there are other options in Singapore! If the Qantas Lounge is full, you can head to the nearby British Airways Lounge as a Gold, Platinum or Platinum One flyer, or Business or First class passenger, when flying on any Oneworld airline. The British Airways lounge is a little smaller and has a smaller food selection, but it is a lot less crowded! If you’re flying with Qantas or Emirates, you may also be entitled to visit the Emirates Lounge. This has excellent catering and is usually very peaceful in the early evening.
