Lost my gold *A even after flying quite a bit this year.
Was all on points, on sq221 on 30/12 with the new double bed business class with the wife so let's see how that is
Gonna bump this again in case anyone can use it
As gold you will get access to gold Kris.
As business passenger you will get access to silverkris. At Changi Silver is better than gold

Yep it is substantially better, I was absolutely trashed when I arrived though so didn't get much of a chance to enjoy it, and got bumped to an earlier flight to boot.
Business on Air Singapore in their new planes is nice as though. Still don't see the value in not investing the price difference into your holiday, but hey if it's with points I couldn't care less. Only criticism was I drank all the JD on the flight, so they must have only had two of those 250ml bottles or something.
Adelaide 13th QC ~12:30pm
17 Feb 6am MEL-SYD
17 Feb 10pm SYD-MEL
QF J Lounge
Business on SQ, on their new planes, is better than first on just about any other airline I've flown with.
That's good to know! I Specifically chose the new A350's on AMS > BNE because it's about as good a route as you can get for enjoying it. Sitting cross legged on a comfy lounge chair whilst watching TV was very nice
And excellent staff as always.
