~5hrs would be a good amount of time to checkout Jewel still I reckon.
J business? yeah I wouldnt fly coach for work, we have VC lol.
Thanks will check out Jewel, Changi website needs a little work, trying to fogure out where is is like a puzzle...... did find it on one of the small blurbs it's in T1 lol
Wife and I are in syd heading to fiji at the end of august.is it worth paying 65 bucks to access the virgin lounge in Sydney for probably two hours before our flights?
how many beers can you drink in 2 hours?
Is it 65 each or for the both?
The food is average at best and extremely narrow selection. If you like to have a couple of beers it may be worth it as its 11-12 bucks a beer in the bars outside of lounge.
Also depends on what time your are flying. Can get extremely busy in the peak hours.
The few times Ive had access to the Lounge, I never felt I would have value in paying for it. If you've never done it, why not just to say you have but it was mildly disappointing in the end.
If you are talking LIST PRICE of $65 each so total $130 for both... It is not worth it.
$70 ($35 each) will get you much much better dinner/lunch inside the terminal
$15 ($7.5 each) will get you equivalent coffee
$85 total leaves you to spend $65 on alcohol or save
Even if your calculations works out to be $140, you will likely be eating much tastier food.
I would say the only time in your senario that it potentially makes sense is if you were in transit and stuck inside for 4 plus hours better actual seats and lounges is the only benefit
Righto. Makes sense. I've got Qantas club but this is a virgin flight sadly.
Unfortunately I'm can't even use my virgin points to upgrade to business because it's a sale flight. Oh well. Macca's it is!
Thanks for the advice
Virgin lounge, can bring 1 other
Sept 15 - BNE domestic from abound 5am
Sept 15 - Melbourne International from about 9am
Sept 20 Melb International from about 6am
In Singapore today.
Not sure if I’m allowed to take anyone in business lounge, worth a try.
I’m flying J Singapore Air and am Plat Velocity (not sure if velocity is of any help)
SQ221 8pm will head to T3 about 5pm local time
Yeah, you should be able to drag someone in.
offer to be guested into Syd International Business Lounge for next 4 hours.
Syd airport down to one runway. I been sitting on the tarmac for nearly an hour at Brisbane.
It's that time of the year where with Fog and wind and all the other shit if you really want to be there in the morning you need to go the night before. But fuck that'
SQ221 is the newest A380 layout.
we were on it last week, my 2.5yo son copped a broken seat would not goto full flat... he still slept the whole way lol
What is the best lounge in Sydney International?
qantas F lounge I'd guess, being the home port
Qantas First for Sure
EK business/first lounge is pretty good as well. IMO, better than QF's own business lounge. I'll be at the QF first lounge this week, so I'll have a better comparison then!
SYD virgin domestic lounge tomorrow from about 11am, can guest 1.
ADL lounge Friday 18th around 5.30pm, can guest 1
Unrelated to upcoming travel, but I recently used the new Brisbane international lounge for VA, and the Wellington International Lounge for VA.
Brisbane one isn't too bad, nothing close to as good as the old Air NZ one or Singapore airlines, IMO, food pretty good though.
Wellington one was very basic, no spirits, like 2 beers. Overall better than terminal for sure, but average overall, and you have to leave to visit toilets, very nice sandwich.
