One positive new development for PPS members at the new terminal is that they board strictly by groups. When flying eco as PPS, this means you get to your seat (and empty overhead bins) way before others.
Thatís good news. Did you have to tell them that youíre PPS or did they pick it up from the boarding pass?

No idea why, but managed to snag one of the PEY seats

But the queue system is not optimal (or rather, the overall gate design is poor). All pax (including F/J pax) have to queue in the open passageway as airport buggys force their way through to Gates 1-4.

They check your boarding pass as you queue, so they are enforcing the group boarding system quite tightly.

Yes, there is the downside of having to queue now.

The only reason I would think CGK would use a 77W is because one of the 773 could be out for maintenance. Apparently, it wasn't just SQ958/959 (Operated by 9V-SWV). It was also SQ950/953, operated by 9V-SWG and SQ966/967 operated by 9V-SWV which did the earlier afternoon CGK flight.

We've seen a couple of cases where it was operated by 9V-SWT in place of a 773 in maintenance and once that 773 returned to service, SWT went in for its maintenance/cabin refit.

I checked FR24 and it seems one of the 773 Reg 9V-SYF was out of operation from 8 - 12 Jan.

You can still opt for it (IDR 150,000), but the default for *G economy passengers is now the Plaza Premium Lounge (also called Sapphire Lounge) near Gate 5. My flight yesterday departed at Gate 5, so it's quite convenient.

The invitation is printed on the boarding pass, so they no longer issue a separate invitation paper.

The lounge (and the gate area) is a bit warm for my liking, but it is a huge improvement over the Pura Indah situation at Terminal 2, so I'm happy it turned out this way.

I asked the check in staff about the voucher, and it's still available if you want it. I doubt they really check if you want to use both the voucher and the lounge.

I guess this will be a problem if I want to clock the miles to KF which I have no status but want to use another *G
