WLG International Business Lounge

Quick report. Flew WLG-MEL today on SQ248.
Lounge was barely ready to go when I turned up as the first guest around 13:10 (security/immigration only opens at 13:00).

Food was underwhelming and was similar to the AKL domestic lounge with chicken tangine as the ‘protein’ and some veges and deep fried cheese (?!)). Seemed quite a step down from my experiences of the AKL international lounge (yes, this is possible)

Wine/beer selections were OK, but not extensive.

Friendly and engaging staff member made hosting a colleague a breeze.

SQ Flight. (For those interested). SQ iPhone BP (iwallet) wouldn’t scan at NZ’s lounge, paper copy with barcode worked fine. No problems as TG*G boarding early with PPS and KF elites.

Y seats on the 772ER were hard and uncomfortable- maybe I have flown too much J med/long haul, but 3:30 was just about my limit.

Aircraft 100% full in Y. check-in staff said Y was oversold, alas no OPUP for me. I was on an H Flexi fare and as a *G wondered if I stood a chance!

Good alternative to NZ or QF.
