Wow,sq reminds me on the same sloppy road as MH a few years ago. Have to give your file in a USB(not provided) to be printed. Is this a business lounge or a joke?

Hopefully AA starts to partner with SQ going forward.

No need. AA partnering Citi in sg will do. At least will prevent me wasting my Citi points on lousy hardware and service.

Yup. And you're limited to 10 pages, at least when I last asked in 2014. Came directly from a business meeting where I had been given some documents to go over on a thumbdrive. Hoped to print the 30-odd pages to mark up on the plane. They told me to schlepp across the terminal to a third-party lounge (and pay) if I wanted more than 10 pages. Kinda ridiculous to be nitpicking over a buck's worth of paper and toner.

Unfortunately it is very common for airline lounges to not have printers these days. It is not just an SQ issue.

Guess so..the lounge has dozens of computers but no printers and the passengers too have several computing devices each but no printers Just shows the fantastic attention to detail

Absolutely agree but not unnecessarily unfortunate.

I think it is a deliberate decision not to offer the device in order to control wastage.

I am certain, if one were to offer the content in a USB stick and request 100 sets to be printed, it would also be politely rejected.

And I think it is fair.

Reminds me when I was using the USB drive to print out some hotel stuff, the lounge attendant asks for the USB drive since they had a "more important" passenger.
