Changi First Class Lounge reopens
And now that First Class passengers are returning to Singapore, the First Lounge at Changi Airport, which originally opened in December 2019 is re-opening. It only got three months of operation before the pandemic closed it until now. With the re-opening, Qantas has its full complement of Changi lounges open, including its Business Lounge
The Qantas First Lounge has a capacity of 240 guests, with Neil Perry prescribed fine dining with a menu based on Singapore’s eclectic dining scene including dishes like Crayfish Laksa with rice noodles, and Barramundi with brown butter sambal and Shrimp Chicken Wings.
Qantas plans to operate a single daily return A380 flight from Sydney to Singapore and on to London plus 20 x A330 flights/week between Singapore and Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Brisbane.
It’s a big YES! from me. Love heading to London with a Singapore transit. Love Changi Airport, and loved the old lounge, so I see no reason not to love the new one. It’s been about 6 years since I did a Qantas A380 First Class trip, and absolutely loved the hard and soft product, although, not so much the food. I would love to travel on the refurbished A380, especially in First Class. Oh, if only I could find a Qantas classic reward fare to redeem!
