No, sorry. It's taken them that long to get to this stage as it is. They were supposed to be refurbing TPR three years ago, now they want to move it. The work is supposed to start by July latest, but then again...

I knew it didn't have showers but didn't realise it doesn't even have toilet facilities. That's outrageous. No wonder they made a point of saying about the new one will have showers!.

The one at T2 has a toilet...... but you have to go out and turn right to go to the toilet

Well overdue for an overhaul of all the Silverkris lounges at SIN. T2 also, not just T3. Food at F class is often not as good as the J class lounge, ironically, especially at non-peak times like midday. The food at the F class lounge just doesnít turn over quickly at those times, so itís not as fresh. And there often more choice at the J class lounges. And TPR can be even worse. The food comes 2-3 minutes after ordering, so they are just microwaving food thatís already been cooked. Thatís a pretty low standard. Many other airlines have awesome F lounges with real dining experience, and for the TPR, that should be the reference point. More than once, Iíve left the TPR to go get fresher and tastier food at the J lounge.

Agree with all that. All the lounges have fallen behind : T2 SKL J & F, T3 SKL J & F and definitely TPR, which is the flagship lounge of an airlines that likes to consider itself right up there is just not good enough in this day and age.

Thanks for the update, MAN Flyer.
It is really time for SQ to catch up to competitors, or even surpass them!
Please, please SQ - use CX's The Pier in HKG as your benchmark.
Even The Pier Business Class side blows SKL First Class out of the water.

SQ needs to up their ground experience game. A great way to fly, sure, but not so much before and after your flight. Their "home-away-from-home" concept roll-out has been really slow.

I wonder if they are developing a whole new concept for the flagship lounges at T2 and T3. Arguably when youíre still in Singapore thereís no point in ďhome-away-from homeĒ.
