My Singapore to Sydney business class trip was pretty predictable because I’m so used to the lounge at Changi’s T2 and T3. Overseas lounges are another thing altogether. A little like Kinder Surprise!
I reached Sydney airport four hours early because my wife wanted to do some shopping at the boutiques.
To my surprise, there was a dedicated queue lane leading to the security baggage check area. Security clearance was a breeze.
The lounge wasn’t the easiest to find. It wasn’t immediately obvious that I had to go to level 3. But thanks to my wife, she pointed that out to me. I guess that’s why we marry a better half don’t we?
As usual, the staff did the regular checks on our boarding pass and we’re good to go. Immediately on the left, you’ll notice a small quiet section. It was completely empty even though the main lounge was fairly full.
As I type this blog out, there is one thing that is really outstanding about this lounge; the wifi is really fast! Not that I needed it anyway as I have plenty of internet auto roaming but it’s troublesome to do a personal hotspot from my Iphone.
Winner of lounge WIFI: Sydney Silverkris!
Next up, it’s time to check out the food and drinks:
Throughout the past hour, there were many announcements saying another SIA flight (SQ242) was delayed. It’s at times like these that I’m comforted that if my flight is delayed, I’ll be in good hands. These are little comforts that business class passengers pay for. Wifi, food, drinks and shower! Speaking of which:
Here comes the most unimpressive and mildly disappointing part: The male lavatory! It was bothering on disgusting. Seriously SIA, employ a dedicated cleaner like you do at Singapore Changi Silverkris!
Btw, as I write this, It’s been more than an hour and SQ 242 is still delayed… I’m sure the business class folks in SQ242 are okay if they’re not rushing.
It was a pleasant experience in this lounge.
