Just to bring to everyone's attention that the Silver Kris Lounge is now re-open in Concourse A at ICN. Only seen a handful of photos from a Korean forum, but looks to be fairly standard issue. No separate F section (makes sense with only 2x flights with F out of 7 per day). Has showers.

I won't be in ICN for a while but if anyone is headed that way in the meantime, please visit and report Meanwhile, I suggest this thread is moved back into the current lounges thread so that people can add their photos/reports.

My SO travelled via ICN yesterday and was still using the OZ lounge. I thought the new SKL would only open on 24 Jan. But never mind, I will be heading that way to on 7/8 Feb and report back.

So none of the glory of the old SKL?

Pity.

But at least there are showers.

stargold, it is standard issue...very much like the OZ and KE concourse lounges including all the concourse announcements...

kapitan, sorry to be the bearer of bad news...there is no smoking room.

Quick overview then...it has a *G sign outside, so should be open to pax on other *A carriers. As stargold mentioned, it has no separate F section. It is surprisingly roomy and airy compared to the OZ J/*G lounge, with apron views. Two thirds of the lounge are 'open roofed', with the remaining third tucked away and feeling a little more cozy...and closer to the restrooms and showers.

Of everything there seems to be pairs: two unisex showers (sans toilets, spacious and light though), two gents sinks, two gents pissoirs, two gents toilets...a choice of two sandwiches, two buffet mains, two snacks, two WiFi access points...there is a choice of three cheeses and four beers though. No champagne, no cognac...but Bombay Sapphire is available. And lots more drinks to choose from. Chilean red and white wine, Cava, Campari, Bacardi, Absolut, and Chivas. Pepsi, not Coke.

I personally prefer the catering and showers (avec toilets) in the KE lounge...the drink quality and food quality (catered by Hyatt Incheon) are just better. Drink selection is much smaller though.
Reading material for English speakers is better at the SKL though...
Makes a case for lounge hopping with PP.

And dang, it's pretty fresh throughout ICN airport today...wish I didn't pack my jacket away in SHE.

Update: just tried the showers...way better than the OZ or KE concourse ones. Makes the SKL my new favorite concourse lounge. Let's hope the catering gets improved a lil. And if the lounge feels cold, head to tucked away part. Much warmer in there.

Update 2: the lounge is located on the KE lounge and transfer desk side...it's a slightly longer walk to the *A transfer desk and gates.

If you think it's fresh in ICN airport - try Seoul town. I'm there now and it's -13 or -14 or thereabouts :o

Nice find, thank you!

One small positive addition to my review. There are power outlets at most seats (the ones with the side tables), some even have two.

Very pretty, indeed, with the big windows; something that the lounges in SIN do not have.
