2. Can't you use the Star Alliance lounge after ARRIVING in business class on SQ? I BELIEVE you can... may be worth Googling. But, if you can, the Star Alliance lounge at TBIT is pretty nice. Very decent food spread, plus great shower suites. Then just use the connectors to get from TBIT to the Alaska LAX madhouse terminal. I don't recommend the Alaska Lounge at LAX, particularly if you can re-clear security at TBIT and use the Star Lounge there.

Thanks for the useful advice, folks. I appreciate it.

Two questions:

1. Given all of the above, I'm assuming that unless the SQ flight is delayed we should comfortably make the 8:30 am AS flight. But there is also a 9:30 am flight. Any advice on this would be welcome.

2 Also, if we need to kill time, is there a lounge we can use in-between? I have Priority Pass and Amex Plat, but not Alaska Lounge access.

Thanks for any help.
I would book an evening flight and SDC onto an earlier flight once you arrive - if your SQ flight comes in late and there's no later flights available to SDC to, your ticket value will be forfeited.
