Only Revenue tickets pax get access to it

So pax on award tics don't get access to it.

Still, enjoy the SKL

Unfortunately, wrong.

In SQ's books, revenue pax consist of both commercial and award customers (their terminology), and have no differentiation in treatment both on the ground and in the air. Only ID tickets are considered nonrev.

Pax on award F tickets gain access to First check-in and TPR. Be it a commercial or award ticket, you will be allowed to bring a guest on the former but not the latter. If you wish to accompany the guest, both of you will have to sit in the F section of the SKL.

I travelled in June on paid J but upgraded to F using Miles&More miles, I can access TPR but was informed that I cannot invite any guest. Was informed that I can bring in another guest if I'm on revenue ticket.

No guest into TPR, correct.
Guest if on revenue ticket, wrong.

You are a revenue pax even if you got it via award, see above post.

I should be more specific, paid F can access TPR and invite 1 guest, award F can access TPR but not invite guest. SQ does make a distinction between paid and award F. It doesn't show on the F boarding pass, but the access to TPR is controlled via TPR invitation card which will be issued when you checked in.

In its early days when TPR was brand new, award F is not allowed to access TPR, only paid F is allowed. This rule was relaxed subsequently.

Must have been a recent change then. Sorry for the misinformation.

When I visited TPR in April this year, I checked with the lady guarding the entrance of TPR and she said even if a TPP holding a paid F ticket wishes to invite a guest in paid J, they would be rejected. They would be invited to use the SKL/F instead.

I think you are wrong! Award tickets can access. Changed the rule quite a while ago!

bagold is right: award tickets can now access (though before it was apparently not the case). as long as you have a F boarding pass, you are good for TPR. i've accessed TPR with both F paid and F award ticket.

Umm, that's what I said in my post?

For the non-entry into TPR, I was referring to the guesting policy for F pax on commercial vs award tickets being equal.

I'd access to TPR, both on F as a revenue pax and on krisflyer award. Once, I'd my 13 mth old with me when I visited. I was revenue and I guess she was sort of revenue too, since her ticket cost 10% of mine. But we left after maybe 15 mins because I didn't want to chance her ruining the peace and quiet. I do like TPR. I definitely was allowed to enter on an award ticket.

At the very beginning of TPR, the rules were different, but for at least several years, departing SIN on a SQ FC award ticket, even if using another FF program's miles, does get you into TPR and also entitles you to use the FC check in lounge and special airside entrance and passport control station. However, you cannot bring a guest (unless possibly is you have SQ PSS/TSS status--I'm not sure about the rules in this case), although you can bring a guest into the FC side of the lounge.
