Again and sadly, I find this a very accurate reflection of service on Singapore Airlines these days. It is impersonal and robotic in all classes.

Standards.

I would never fly long haul with BA.

For longhaul I use BR, SQ, QR, CX and NH in the main. They take me to the places I need to go.

There are lots of choices for the places I need to go, SK, LO, TP, TK and A3.

I'm not either wedded to *A and so use KL, AF, AY and just occasionally BA.

I do tend to use LH to MUC and LX to...

The Plaza Premium lounge airside in T2 (there is also a landside option) is fine. IMO it's better or as good as any of the *A lounges. It was offered by some *A carriers at the beginning and until...

It will mean the shorthaul sector, catering will be loaded at GIG as usual. AFAIK, there are no reports of catering not being loaded at outstations.
