Agree with SK AAR that you will survive.

Probably you can find more answers in the Star Alliance forum.

International outbound *A lounge choice generally depends on which end of the terminal your flight departs from. The SQ and EVA lounges are preferable, and up towards the E/F/G end (also with poor TG lounges), while the other end has only (more) poor TG lounges.

The check-in agent will issue a lounge invitation, possibly to one of the "Miracle/CIP" lounges?

ANA gave me a lounge invite to the Miracle lounge. It was close to my gate and had plenty of seating. Food was a step above mediocre but not great -- looked like they had some stuff being made to order. Beverage selection was decent, shower facilities were very good IMO. The lounge wasn't quite packed but had quite a few people enjoying it when I was there in November.

Ya, there is a reason for that

Your invite actually probably showed MIracle, and then TG and EVA lounges, but only Miracle is fully written (printeded) out.

Have not tried EVA, but last time I went back to TG lounge

hi peeps, i intend to try out one of the AP lounges for the first time as i have some time to kill before my 9pm flight out of suvarnabhumi BKK end of the month.
i have priority pass from citi pmiles card which i have been holding for almost a decade but never use for lounge access before. Hoping to get a positive experience from it.

Is the miracle first class lounge G any good? or any other recommendations?

TIA

I prefer the Oman PP lounge for drink. IME there isn't a good lounge for food.

And welcome to FT Lee Randy.

Not trying to start a new topic, but reading up some of these replies.

I have about an hour and a half layover in BKK but I have access to Star Alliance Business lounges and the Priority pass card. My flight out of BKK is via SIN and was wondering if the consensus would be to eat in the Singapore lounge then do a quick jaunt over to the EVA lounge to relax a little then get on the flight?

Thanks

If you only want to relax a bit and you are pressed for time, I would stay in the SQ lounge.

You can visit BR lounge next time in BKK...

I visited the Priority Pass lounge around gate D5 or so last time I was in BKK. I will be transiting 3 more times this year through BKK (flying J in TG both times). I found the lounge to be alright for early morning / breakfast, but would it be worth visiting a *A lounge next time instead?

None of the BKK lounges really stand out from the others. I usually just pick whatever lounge is most convenient to the gate.

If I were at HKG/SIN/TPE for multi-hour layover, I'd get picky about which lounge to use. At BKK... I don't bother.

There were some positive comments on EVA lounge, so I tried it today.

Very few pax at 10 a.m., so very peaceful, but not much to get excited over.

OK, the mini pizza was a nice touch, and tasted pretty good.

But a long walk to C3 ....

I totally understand, I've made the Oman PP lounge to C1A, C2A walk more times than I'd like. I had hoped PG would switch their bus gates to D8A, E1A, E2A after their lounge shifted to D6 but no luck on that accord. So it's gonna more trudging up and down the D concourse for me.

Depends on how much time you have and how far you are willing to walk.

Of all *A lounges, try to avoid TG lounges, both too crowded and food being underwhelming. SQ, EVA and Oman Air have decent selection, with SQ being the best for me in terms of Asian comfort food, Macallan 12yrs and fresh young coconuts.

PP lounges are about the same level while the big Miracle lounge offers you the most, with own in-terminal open air garden for smokers, noodles and soups made-to-order and the usual buffet selection.
