For me I just see the First Class one as being less crowded than the Business Class one. Maybe the F&B offerings are slightly better too, but not significantly.

Do give the Turkish Airline lounge a go too. It's further on from the SKL opposite the JAL lounge.

Thanks. I saw that first and business class share the same middle counter (those that serve chicken rice, etc), thus I thought they are the same, at least in terms of food.

Care to share the good point for Turkish Airline lounge? Never been there before.

I like the TK one because there's a lot of seating, not crowded, windows that bring in natural light and sealed from main D wing so not so noisy.

Miracle is okay but it can get quite noisy at times when there are big tour groups waiting at the Visa on Arrival area downstairs.

Food wise Miracle has a better spread than TK. AFKLM, Oman and Bangkok Air have pretty decent food options that are better than TK's too.

Yes possible. I go there to have my meals if I land at lunch/dinner timing. I never say anything I just pass them my boarding pass (XXX - SIN) and PP.

T&C states usage of priority pass at airside is for departing flight. Any deviation we better keep quiet to enjoy it. Later they enforce and plug this hole, just like Haven lounge used to no need show boarding pass u till some joker turn up everyday in singlet treating it as his personal cafe.

Yes, if you get lucky, and if a lounge agent grants you an exception, so be it.

However, the Priority Pass T&Cs do allow access to lounges upon arrival in two situations:

1. If the lounge is part of the program and specifically designed for arriving passengers — an “arrival lounge” by name. (London Heathrow has a couple such lounges.) It wouldn’t be fair to put “XYZ Arrival Lounge” in the program, a lounge that only arriving passengers can access due to the airport layout, and then deny every member entry.

2. If the lounge is part of the program, in the United States, and you have a same day ticket/boarding pass (arrival or departure). Priority Pass doesn’t have very many U.S. lounges, but I think they grant a blanket exception there because they’re competing to some extent with the lounge membership programs that American, Delta, United, and Alaska Airlines sell to access their own lounges. As I recall, those U.S. airline lounge programs allow same day arriving paid members to access lounges.

Please note that in Singapore it’s illegal to buy a ticket and to clear immigration if you don’t have the intention to leave Singapore. However, I suppose you could buy a fully refundable ticket to Kuala Lumpur or to some other relatively inexpensive destination then enter the landside lounge with your Priority Pass (or Dragon Pass) membership. (There’s one such lounge at Changi Airport.) That’d be silly and even a little pathetic, but technically it’d be consistent with program rules.

Oh well... What to do...

There are always such people around who will openly abuse loopholes until it gets closed up

So for food Miracle First Class at concourse D is the best?

Read Turkish is new and not bad but food option is quite bad. What about AFKLM vs Miracle overall?

Presently I am a member of Priority Pass as I have DBS Altitude card. If say I apply for another card eg CitiPremier Miles card (which also has 2 free lounges per year), will I get a total of 4 complimentary lounge visits a year?

After I get the Citipremier miles card, will Priority pass know immediately ?

Citipremier will give you a separate PP card for their 2 complimentary lounge visit. It doesnt get added to the count you have for DBS Alt.

That means I would need to apply for another PP membership under Citipremier?
Meaning after I get the Citipremier card, then I would have to apply to PP for another membership?
