It says in the OP's post that both the C & F lounges will have their own shower facilities. So we can be hopeful. I guess I will be able to use the F section then in mid-May when traveling to DPS in SQ C. I expect it to be 'cozily crowded' on a Fri evening with F & C pax and TPPs and QPPS in there.

SQ establishing its own SQ KF Gold and *G lounge means maybe that they want to keep that revenue now for themselves rather than passing it on to SATS.

A dedicated KF Gold lounge is generally a positive step for most, although it further devalues the already near-meaningless benefits of QPP.

About bl**dy time!. Those SKL's are now pretty grim and tired lounges and well overdue a refurb. I only nip in for a quick drink and a paper these days then go and find somewhere more pleasant to spend the rest of my time in T2.

+1, but as they haven't got them over in T3 I can't see it happening. It's ridiculous having them seperate.

I fear that may get 'enhanced' out as they don't have one in T3 SKL J side.

I can see the logic in creating a KF Gold lounge, having one in T3 but not T2 was bizarre. They have quite a bit of space to play around with as well as the lounges are generally quiet these days (maybe many other people also don't enjoy spending time there...) with sections of the J side closed off during the day.

I have a feeling that the retrofitted lounge will be a twin of the SKL in HKG.

Indeed the current T2 lounges are outdated and need to be redone.
Need more natural light into the lounges. Shower suites please (toilet and shower in same room, like the design prior to the current T2 design).

I just hope they will keep the spacious feeling of the SKL F. I really don't like the SKL HKG/SKL T3 side-by-side seating in F lounge. It is not nice when you have travelling companions.
Wonder if they will keep the slumberette rooms as well. I am guessing they will be 'enhanced out' as well.

About time actually. Even MH's rimbun lounge beats them.

Was in the SKL's in T2 yesterday and they haven't started yet. The end of this week is supposed to be when they start. The KFG lounge is apparently going to be on the left hand side where the current J side is.

The white ladies haven't seen the plans but their understanding is both the smoking rooms and the slumberettes are being 'enhanced'.

At the SKL in T2 now. The J side has closed for renovations and we have all been directed to the F lounge.

First time here and I have to say I was quite surprised when I asked the ladies for some crackers to go with my cheese and was pointed to a basket of sliced bread and buns..

I would imagine that is going to make the F side rather busy.

I was there pretty late (almost midnight) and it was about 50-70% filled. Wouldn't want to imagine what it would be like during the evenings!!

That's outrageous No I'm seriously mad then as I always eat them. Either way, I will be flying on Fri evening to DPS in C and be in the T2 lounge around 18:00 expecting a zoo. Will report back.

Haha... Fat Hope. Nope, don't have. But maybe that's for the better. I need to loose weight anyway. As for the food, I think they have downgraded it as well, now it's like something better than J but not as good as F last time.

I supposed the F passengers in T2 will now flock over to T3 to enjoy lounge there rather than crowd into T2 lounge.

Did they run out of it, or did they discontinue it?
