Question 1464

Question 1464

    Hi Ben

    First, thanks for your very informative blog – I am new to the world of points and your blog has inspired me to book my first multi-airline first-class trip this year using a mix of points obtained via credit cards and AAdvantage purchases.

    That said, I am hoping you have some experience to share on flying out of Amsterdam on SQ. Do you have any advice on the ground experience for a First Class Singapore Airlines’ passenger at Schiphol Airport? Specifically, the lounge seems to be a shared, out-sourced lounge (Menzies lounge 41 for First, Business and elite passengers). Is the lounge worth visiting? Would it be preferable to use the Schiphol VIP Services Lounge (at an additional fee)?

    Any advice very much appreciated.

    @ Shane — I’m sure you’ll have a great trip! Unfortunately I don’t have any firsthand knowledge of the ground experience, though in general it’s not worth showing up early for a contract lounge. The VIP service would definitely be a better experience, though if you’re originating in Amsterdam I might just recommend arriving as close to departure as possible and not leaving much time for the lounge.
