The other thing about staying here is the variaty of food available in T3 on basement level 2 (if you're after something cheap and cheerful). I must have passed through T3 a million times before realising there's a whole world of shops and food stalls down there!

Well last night it involved getting down to the Suria Mall in KL to buy a replacement suitcase after my one gave up and a wheel feel off! I'm a classical music lover so I like to see if there's a local orchestra or ensemble playing. Street food in Asia, of course, and anything that allows me to s...

The runway view rooms are a separate room class when booking, but ask to be on L9 (top floor).

I’ve stayed here many times and think it’s a great airport, particularly for hopping up to SIN late in the day after work, getting some sleep and a shower and then heading to the next destination in the morning. And the runway view rooms are great for any a geek out there!

That's a great departure time for the flight up to HK. Will lounge access be the Etihad lounge?

Mar 12, 2018, 04.03 PM / Velocity points, status credits earning rate changes for SQ economy
I may have missed something but I'm pretty sure I didn't - it seems the SC earn for Velocity on SQ flights has just changed. Whereas only N,Q,V and K tickets were classed as 'discount economy' with a 50% SC earn, now N,Q,V,K,L,M,H,W are all classed as discount, with only Y, B, and E classed as fu...

Completely agree that cabin baggage is way out of hand. The thing that annoys me most is the people who don't take of their back packs before boarding and then sashay down the aisle, knocking everyone in an aisle seat in the head with their oversize back packs!

Feb 13, 2018, 06.06 PM / VA Earn on SQ
Hi All, I have an upcoming flight with SQ, flying 6 sectors. 2 of the sectors are N class, the rest E or Y. N earns the 'discount' SC rate (i.e. 50%) with velocity but I believe I will I earn the full amount of SC's on the other flights? Anyone know if I'm right? Thanks!
