United Airlines has recently introduced a new premium lounge called United Polaris Lounge. These lounges are many miles above the United Club (and possibly United First Lounge – which I have tried once back in San Francisco). Currently, Polaris Lounge is only available in these locations:

Just like Changi, KLM has no lounge in DPS. Lounge service is contracted to Premier Lounge. Compared to the old premier lounge, the new lounge seems to be smaller and a significant regression in terms of food choices.

Skyteam seems to have a weak presence in Singapore, hence none of the Skyteam carriers departing Singapore have their own lounge (Korean Airlines, Delta, KLM etc.). Instead, passengers will get to use the Dnata Lounge (previously Skyview Lounge, which has since been discontinued).

After 5 days in Bali, it is time to head home. Unfortunately, I was sick for half of my trip hence I didn’t take much pictures for this flight.
I arranged a private transfer from Club Med to Ngurah Rai Airport which took about half an hour. The new airport looked much cleaner and organized, but the efficiency somehow failed to catch up. We were dropped off at the departure gate and proceeded to the counter. Unlike most airports where the check in counters are in the public area, DPS airport has its check-in counters behind a security screen. There will be a security officer inspecting your passports and your belongings need to go through an x-ray machine before being allowed into the check in counters.

Finally, that time of the year again! However, this was just a short family getaway to Bali. As mentioned in my previous post, I bought 6 (4A + 2C) tickets early this year for $3.2k (using DBS-Expedia promo) and subsequently I found out that KLM was having an offer. Thankfully, I managed to cancel my old tickets at no cost and rebooked the same tickets at $2.2k (a massive $1k savings). So how does KLM’s World Business Class fare?

My family and I will be doing a short trip to Bali in June, on KLM.
KLM to Bali is a 5th freedom flight from AMS; hence it is actually a AMS-SIN-DPS and DPS-SIN-AMS flight. It is a daily flight:
KL835 – departs Singapore at 1650 and arrives Denpasar at 1925
KL836 – departs Denpasar at 2040 and arrives Singapore at 2320
