Shows that it's important to get the technology choice right. Reality is most satellites point at landmasses, so coverage over predominately sea routes will always be behind.

Albeit both offerings are substantially better than a United Club which will always be effectively a domestic lounge given the lack of separation in most US airports.What passengers need and deserve varies substantially from a 1hr hop to a 17hr flight (although granted both SIN and DOH serve both)
