As I hinted at earlier, I’m trying a couple of new airline products enroute to the US today, and one of them involved a visit to Singapore Airlines’ Private Room in Singapore, which is the premium portion of their first class lounge. Previously The Private Room was only open to full fare first class passengers, though in 2009 they relaxed the entry requirements and started allowing all Singapore Airlines first class passengers access.
While it’s not the Lufthansa First Class Terminal or Thai Airways First Class Lounge & Spa, it definitely ranks up there as one of the better lounges in the world.
The most surprising aspect of the experience is that the lounge is living up to it’s name a bit too well. For 80% of the evening I’ve been the only passenger in here, with about six waiters looking after me. Surely that can’t be a good sign of Singapore’s first class load factor…
I’ll save the details for the trip report, though in the meantime here are a few pictures of the lounge:
Private room in The Private Room… now who’s on first again?
