Default Best J lounge JFK and FRA

Hi all,

Wife and I are flying J redemption tonight SQ25 JFK-FRA-SIN. Both of us find that a shower and a quiet, uncrowded and comfortable place to wait close to the gate makes the experience so much more enjoyable. Not really interested in food quality, variety, or other fancy stuff. We have no relevant status. I see there is the Wingtips lounge, though I see conflicting reports as to whether it is landside or airside, and I also see reference to an Oasis lounge. Finally, both Air India and Swiss have lounges in the relevant terminal, and I understand under alliance rules we can use these as well.

Thoughts and recommendations much appreciated!

I flew JFK-FRA-SIN and broke off from the pack during the transit at FRA to the Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge. the food offering there is considerably better than LH Senator / LH Business Lounge which SQ uses at FRA.

who doesn't like to fiddle around (and accidentally wreck) with a wafflemaker?

JFK: I don't think the Air India lounge is open around the SQ flight departure time. I once went there around mid-day and enjoyed tasty veg and non-veg Indian food. The Swiss J lounge I found disappointing, and the Oasis lounge (now called Wingtips) is definitely airside. The food there is better but can be hit or miss.

FRA: The AC lounge is less busy and more comfortable than the LH SEN lounge. Both lounges have nice showers. I personally prefer the AC lounge. My experience might have been marred by the loud Russian couple who were obnoxiously Facetiming in the SEN lounge.

Maybe I am wrong, but Star Alliance rules allow a gold card status holder to use any *A lounge..... J pax without status use the contracted lounge of the airline...

Have to admit, don't really know myself, just something I heard. Too lazy to google.
