I am actually referring to the PP from Premiermiles. I think I read somewhere that the T&Cs have changed for Citibank hence I just wanted to double confirm that I could sign someone in using my 2 visits/year benefit.
If you just applied for the PremierMiles card and receive the PP card, it's only valid for one year from date of issue. Is that true, actually how many years of free visits are we entitled to?

they send a new one every year, so until they discontinue the programme? for now, can assume it's permanent as long as you're a cardholder.

My favourite is Skyview Lounge at T1.
Decent light bites and drinks. And also nice tarmac view, which is quite important to me.

Rainforest is almost like a cafeteria... It is not better than Skyview. Considering that I disagree with the previous post & I think Skyview sucks, this should indicate what I think of Rainforest.

Frankly, the lounges available to PP in Changi sucks. T3 is bearable but in T1 & 2, I would almost prefer to sit at Starbucks to those lounges, except that I am a cheapskate and don't want to pay for the food.

Now, this is not the case internationally. I have used the PP lounges in KLIA, HCM & PEK and they are quite nice. Changi really needs to up their game in this regards...

I think Skyview is the best for me because I use T1 more than other terminals and best of all only Skyview allows kids 12 years and below free entry.

Any idea which of the lounges has the best food? I'm taking Scoot this Friday to Sydney and I don't really fancy blowing $ on their food.

- Ambassador transit lounge (T2)
- Rainforest by sats (T1)
- The green market (T2)

I would say they are all about the same. I would just go to the one at T2 for convenience. Not really worth trekking all the way to another terminal just to get marginally better food. Depending on the time of day, there may not be hot food available, but there should be cup noodles, as a last resort.

They are all decent. However, Concourse A is a fair distance from the Main Terminal. Only use the ones in the Concourse if your flight is departing from there. If from the Main Terminal, just pick the one nearer to your gate.

I think it was a figure of speech. These are the 5 you can choose from. Just pick the one that would be closest to your departure gate.

Main Building. Generally, for international travel, the 2 Korean airlines (Korea Air & Asiana) use the main terminal and all foreign airlines use the Concourse.

As of this month (Oct 2012), they still have this policy.
I received a new PP card (a replacement) and the letter still says that guest access counts towards the complimentary visits. I could take a pic/scan of the letter if you like.
So that means if both a guest and I go sign in to a lounge, I would exhaust the two complimentary visits for this calender year right?

And if I were to sign in again say in Dec, both me and my guest have to pay right?
