I would like to thank JC, another friend whom I managed to ‘squeeze’ some pictures out on her recent trip to Sapporo with her family on Korean Air Business Class. Both legs were operated on the wide body jets which still uses a rather dated angled flat product. Regardless, this still wins being upright in Economy Class!
At slightly less than SGD $2k per person, this is quite a good price for Business Class as Economy Class on Singapore Airlines to Japan in December can easily hit $1.4 – $1.5k per person! The only drawback? Skyteam is not exactly a great alliance to accrue your miles.

As a delegate part of a conference group enroute to BKK, I opted for a walk in upgrade on TG for S$185 to Business class from my Q category ticket so as to be able to review the TG lounge as well as the new A350-900 to BKK.
The Lounge is located in a quiet spot of Terminal One near the central immigration on level 3. There are a few lounges close by like the SATS (which is accessible via the Priority Pass card) and Qantas lounge.

I had the chance to use this lounge on my way up to Bangkok for a weekend conference and was glad to have the opportunity to use my Priority Pass to access it, as this was just recently opened to Priority Pass users.
The Changi Lounge at Jewel is a very welcome addition to the lounge offerings at Changi Airport, and will especially be of delight to traveler’s departing from Terminal 1 but who wants to have some time landside in Jewel (or has a companion who wants to explore Jewel but him/herself having no interest to do so). For my international readers, please do spend some time exploring the iconic structure before resting your feet in the lounge!

It has been a busy week and I have not been able to continue – decided to take a bit of a break from my recent trip reviews and to post this from a friend’s recent trip.
A friend recently flew on UA 2 which is the direct competitor of SQ 34. Other than the fact that it is a direct flight and she was given the Economy Plus seat (at no extra charge), the rest of the flight was pretty forgettable. The best (or the worst) part was the “service with a snarl”.

Ever since the first time I step foot into Silverkris Lounge in 2012 (and The Private Room in 2013), it has been errr….. stuck in a time warp.
My first impression of the Business Class lounge back then was one of grandeur and opulence, with its luxurious marbled floor and walls. Together with the large food and beverage selection, it was the lounge I would love to be in back then.
Just as I thought that nothing can be better, my first experience in the First Class Lounge and The Private Room (TPR) changed my mind. The lounge within a lounge concept made TPR an exclusive sanctuary. The a la carte dining menu made the TPR even more special.

That Time of The Year 2019 (second edition) came and went and my body is still trying to adjust back to local timing. After the discontinuation of SQ67/68, SQ51/52 is now the longest route for Singapore Airlines. The Houston route was previously flown using a 777-300ER via Moscow (SIN-DME-IAH) but has since changed to an A350-900 (hence eliminating First Class on this route) and the layover stop is now in Manchester.

With our conference being held in Gardens Hotel itself, naturally the delegates were housed here. Due to the less than ideal timing of the flights (SQ 118 and SQ 119), we had only 8 hours in our rooms!

My partner, AF recently traveled to Melbourne with her hubby on their maiden flight on SQ Suites. Being their first trip in Suites, they had lots of fun (not to mention food) even before they step foot onto the plane!
Here are some pictures from their flight:

There are currently 2 flights to Osaka daily (3rd one coming in April), either the red-eye at or a noon flight. Although I would have preferred to try out the Dreamliner, the timing was rather not conducive for my short travel as I end up losing one day. I opted instead for the ungodly hour of SQ618 which departs at 130am (for 5.5 hours flight).

I decided to put this up first as I felt that this review deserved the priority. I was initially booked on Business Class on both legs (SQ 618 and SQ 619) but 1.5 weeks out, Suites on the SQ 619 was still available and after some thoughts, I decided to make the plunge given the special nature of this trip (and giving in to my weak spot for Suites). I guess it was well worth it! What I experienced on this flight was a total contrast to my anniversary flight on SQ 308 last year.
