And QR Business Class, but with privilege club platinum (OWE)?

I would think the QR lounge, assuming the business class does not come from an upgrade.

If no one answers within the next 30 hours, I should be able to provide first-hand witness information.

My apologies, unable to report. I think the QR lounge must be in a different are than SATS/BA/Qantas.

As for the SATS lounge, its looking like its had a bit of time to recover since it was last bombed. Multiple buffet food options on offer.

Has QR stopped using the Plaza Premium First at KUL now? It's a nice place with a la carte dining. Much better than MH J and regular PP for sure, though it's a relatively small lounge.

So with the opening of the QR lounge at SIN, I guess the late-night situation has improved considerably for people with most (but not all) business class tickets.

My understanding is, those with economy, certain discounted business class tickets, upgrades, and possibly also award business tickets are still confined to the T1 SATS ghetto.

I wonder whether anyone has any recent experience on whether the late-night SATS situation has improved? I haven't been there since mid-June. The 2:40am flight is usually the most convenient for me.

What's the verdict for OWE flying QR business class - is it better to spend the evening at QR business lounge or QF first lounge? There's an airline marketing video:

But not many pictures of the food. If anyone has used the QR business lounge post COVID, can you please confirm if the food is cooked to order like QF first lounge and, if possible, share some actual photos and menu if any?

Thank you! Menu items look diverse and make a nice change from QF first lounge.

That's very true. Because this is a "genuine" lounge for J passengers only. All the OW F passengers and OWEs gravitate to QF F lounge. And OWS flying Y are "shunted" to QF J.
