I get to airport at the last minute so it is very rare for me to try the lounge in Sydney.
I always get a heart flutter at security check -> not for anything dodgy but if the line is LONG.

So there is a priority security screening for gold plus members, how do you access it via the lounge, in particular in Sydney International, any help would be appreciated.

Might have to try to get into KrisSilver lounge, the funny thing is the look and feel of the two is marketly different.

KrisSilver look like it was made to show off Singapore air entrance via escalator in the middle of the terminal with nice large signs, where as KrisGold lounge seems like an after thought.

Priority screening for international is usually via a dedicated line at security, you often get given some kind of printed pass to get you through, make sure to ask for it at check in.

I don't get the Silver being better than Gold thing. I am sure there is a logic somewhere. But once almost went into the gold lounge travelling J and they told me no. Thought I was missing out, then googled it.

The food in Silver is ok, but its not amazing by any grade, even first/suites lounge in SG isn't that amazing compared to other lounges around the world.


Best thing is the tea bags in the lounge, TWG I normally stock up on my outbound flights, nothing like having a range of good tea bags when traveling. I also have those disposable drip filters from Japan and I am covered.

On that note, has anyone flown business class with Virgin via AUH and can report on the lounge for Etihad business class there?
I've flown through as a Virgin Platinum and got access to the High End lounge. Got a great massage , shower and a decent meal.

It's not quite the terminal straddling Emirates Dubai lounge but the service and food is good.
