Used Chase UR points before Skypass stopped being a transfer partner for J on the 747-8 on the upper deck.

The Apex suite was the most comfortable flight I've had.

Definitely worth it imho.

KE's J lounge at ICN was much larger (understandable given that it's KE's home base). It was quieter, but partly because we were leaving in the AM versus our 2PM NRT-ICN flight.

If you are flying out of IAD, using the Turkish Airlines lounge with PP is your best bet anyways. The AF lounge is completely adequate, but nothing to write home about.
