    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.

    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.
