Singapore Business Class Lounge – BKK
I got a little bored in the Thai Airways Royal Silk lounges, so I wandered over to the Singapore Airlines lounge. I had access to the lounge because I was departing in business class on Singapore Airlines to Singapore (next up: Suites!).
Anyway, I stopped by the lounge to take a quick glance around and see what I wasn’t missing.
It’s hard to tell here, but the seating was worn and there were dirty dishes left on many of the tables.
I did like this view of the garden.
It was a ghost town. I was the only living being in sight, besides the front desk worker. Freaky.
They did have an assortment of food and beverages to choose from. I didn’t partake though, because I was too full from my other lounge visits.
I’m not a fan of eating food under heat lamps. It seemed liked the food had been there for awhile.
I wasn’t in the mood for franks and beans either.
Ah-ha. They did have a decent serve-yourself alcohol selection and Haagen Daz ice cream.
I didn’t spend a lot of time in the Singapore lounge and I much preferred the Royal Silk lounges. If you were looking for a quiet place to have to yourself, then this lounge was for you. But it wasn’t kept as clean or had the quality of food that the other Royal Silk lounges had.
I was pumped for this flight because it got me one step closer to coming home and flying Singapore Suites. I was flying business class on Singapore Air’s 777-200. Check-in went smoothly and I was escorted to my seat 1b.
This wasn’t my exact seat, but the row behind me. As you can see the seats were a tad bit outdated, just like the art behind it. The seats reminded me of the first couches I ever had in my college apartment. They were family hand-me-downs and had a lot of wear and tear on them – but they did the job.
I can’t lie – I went straight to my hand sanitizer after opening my arm rest to get my tray out.
The seat controls were easy to use and worked properly.
Size matters when it comes to video screens, but I still enjoyed watching a fim during the flight.
The chicken and vegetables I ordered for my meal service was pretty tasty. It was the perfect, light meal I was craving.
Dessert was the highlight of the flight for me. A little coffee and Haagen Daz ice cream is all takes for me to be happy. I’m easy like that.
I wouldn’t go out of my way to visit the Singapore lounge in BKK again, unless I wanted complete solitude. My flight to SIN on the 777-200 was under 3 hours, so I didn’t care about the outdated product.
Singapore’s service on the plane was world class as usual, but I was gearing up for the next few hours. My review of Singapore’s first class and private room lounge areas is next.
