Default Big changes coming to SKL / TPR at T3 ?

If they do ever get around to pulling the trigger that is. They've been kicking the can down the road for a few years now, especially for TPR as that was originally supposed to be done a couple of years ago with it being changed to having sectioned off 'Private Rooms' and should have been done and dusted

It does appear that SQ have finally managed to get more space from Changi so the size and floor area of the lounges will increase as well. The main decision now is supposedly how long they close them for, with one suggestion they could be closed for up to a year.

What is not in doubt is both TPR and the SKL's are in need of a big upgrade. For an airline that still likes to think itself at the top of the tree the current offerings are nowhere near good enough.

I was in the First Class lounge at T3 yesterday, pre SQ494. The food was dire, not even a decent sandwich. And of course, no windows or natural light.

Yep, it's poor in 2019 for a leading airline in its main hub.

Maybe they are just waiting for T5. Upgrading T3 SKL May prove tricky as it’ll impact so many PAX unless they find a temp area.

Thereís no way thatís a viable option. T5 is too far away to keep the current outdated setup for another decade.

SIN T3 is IMHO far too large for a single J lounge to suffice; at least 2, possibly 3 lounges are required (ala CX at HKG?).
And here is a subversive thought: why not restore the practice of allowing QPPS into F lounges? In my experience F lounges tend to be ghost towns these days, given the declining numbers of actual F seats.
