What's the difference between that and the "Regular SKL F?"

They are still allowed to be at the current SKL F.

At the moment SKL F is for Suites and First pax, as well as Solitaire traveling on SQ/MI in J and Y, and also for Star Alliance First Class pax. Thus, with "The Private Room," (it will be abbreviated as TPR )it will only be Suites and First Class BP holders only.

So what will SQ call SKL F at T3? Surely, none of the F pax will be hanging out there once this private room is open. This will make us TPPS/LPPS flying SQ on J or Y look like a bunch of outcasts. May I therefore suggest that we call the current SKL F at T3 "The Outcast Solitaire" lounge?

I am disappointed with this decision but I guess SQ has every rights to do what it wants with its loyalty program including killing it every single chance that it has.

I think SQfg meant to ask what's inside TPR ?

It's really no different from the LHR T5 Galleries First lounge (BA golds and other OW emeralds) and the Concorde Room (BA premiers, CCR cardholders and BA F only).

A similar setup as LH at FRA and MUC, or BA at LHR, except I guess TPR will not be as good as LH FCL/FCT and SKL F will not admit *G (unless in F) whereas LH F/SEN does. I hope they don't end up taking the worst bits of the BA and LH lounges and ignoring the best bits.

Well, you guys have seen the pictures inside, unless they have redecorated the place. I have asked nickbot to take pictures, unless someone else passing through earlier!

It's really no different from the LHR T5 Galleries First lounge (BA golds and other OW emeralds) and the Concorde Room (BA premiers, CCR cardholders and BA F only).
But at least BA is trying very hard to make a nice Galleries First lounge (as far as I can tell from the pictures) for its BA golds and OW emeralds. SQ did not even try with its current SKL F at T3. To add to the injury, the location of this TPR is actually inside the SKL F at T3. The F section will soon be very noisy and busy with R / F pax (I expect those flying F out of T2 flights will join as well) passing through to enter this TPR.

I will certainly take pics and post on July 6th - maybe nickbot, the most unlikely SQ F pax on the board, will get the SQTalk scoop on this one

Actually I meant both - as in, what's inside the TPR and also how does the entry requirement differ from "regular SKL F" - both of which have been answered thanks

At last !!!. It's only taken them 6 months, after it was all but finished.

Exactly. If the lounge they provide for the top tier FFP members of their so called 'more exclusive' () programme wasn't so poor, it wouldn't really matter. But as it's crap, it does. As you say, they don't even seem to have tried with the current SKL F.

Bearing in mind how they seem to completely miss the point with lounges, I can't wait to see what they've spent 6 months doing to make this new place special. We know it's got tarmac views, so that's something I suppose. I'm not expecting much else, although I am hoping to be pleasantly surprised, or shocked maybe...

It's about time they open that part of the SKL.
Hopefully there is some added features/services on the other side of the "F & R only" entry requirement.

Well, at least we now know the answer to SQ LPP's questions. I wonder what they've changed in there...

Interessting... at least they show common sense by letting in both, Suites and regular First passengers... but I can absolutely understand that TPPs and LPPs will not be pleased by the decision...

I really hope that the Dom will see a comeback in the TPR... after alienating thousands of loyal TPP and LPP customers, they better offer F pax something special... otherwise the only effect the new room will have is to pi** off loyal customers which can't be good for SQ in the long term...
