Lounge Review: British Airways Lounge and Concorde Bar - Singapore Changi Airport (SIN)

I have been to The Qantas Singapore Lounge on many occasions and it is probably one of my favourite airport lounges in Singapore. The quality of food is good, the interiors are beautiful, there is a proper bar (that does solid cocktails) and the lounge will also be expanding this year to cater for more premium cabin guests. Since my last visit to the British Airways Lounge and Concorde Bar was during the peak hours, I was not able to get a decent shot of the interiors and as such, I have decided to drop by the airport a little earlier to check out the BA lounge next door.

Lounge Review: Qantas International Business Lounge - Auckland Airport (AKL)

Having been to the Air New Zealand Auckland International Lounge (which is probably my favourite lounge in AKL) and the Strata Lounge (a Priority Pass lounge), I was curious to check out the Qantas International Business Lounge when I was traveling from Auckland to Melbourne last month. The Qantas Lounge here in Auckland Airport is located airside on level 2 and it opens from 4:00AM until the departure of the last Qantas or Emirates Service so you do not have to worry about accessing it if you are traveling on QF/EK First and Business Class.

Lounge Review: Qantas International Business Lounge - Melbourne Airport (MEL)

Even though I have visited the Qantas International Business Lounge on multiple occasions over the years, I have not actually spent much time in it until today. As I am booked on a flight to Auckland via Melbourne, I have a ridiculously long layover in the airport and amongst all the airports lounges that I have access to, the Qantas International Business Lounge is the only one with shower facilities. Therefore, I decided to stop by for a quick shower before checking out some of the other lounges.

Trip Report - Japan Airlines Business Class SKY SUITE III JL37 - HND to SIN (Haneda to Singapore)

When I visited Tokyo back in May, I travelled back to Singapore on Japan Airlines - I have been flying JAL rather frequently (this was my fourth Business Class flight) this year since it costs a lot less to redeem my miles on it than on Singapore Airlines. More importantly, I have found the food served in Business Class on day flights to be comparatively better than Singapore Airlines (if you are picking the Japanese meal). Read about my Business Class experience on Japan Airlines from Tokyo back to Singapore!

Trip Report - Japan Airlines Business Class SKY SUITE III JL724 - KUL to NRT (Kuala Lumpur to Narita)

For this flight from Kuala Lumpur to Tokyo (Narita), I chose Seat 1K only to realise that it differs slightly from the 777-200ER which I took previously - this flight is operated on a Beoing 787-9 Dreamliner. In fact, the JA870J that I flew on was so new that the cabin products were not even retrofitted. Read about my Business Class experience on Japan Airlines’ SKY SUITE III product!

Lounge Review: Japan Airlines Sakura Lounge Skyview - Haneda Airport (HND)

Even though I was very tempted to head back to the Cathay Pacific Lounge (and get a double serving of that delicious Wanton Noodles) in Haneda Airport, I decided to check out the JAL Sakura Lounge Skyview this time. Read my review of this beautiful oneworld alliance airport lounge here in Haneda Airport (HND)!
