Hi All


Flying return to Heathrow in economy with SQ in a week - confirming that, as VA Gold, I'll be able to access the Silver Kris lounge at Heathrow prior to departure?

Do any of you VA Frequent Flyers have recent experience on SQ to/from London?

Thanks!

Yes you will be able to access the lounge at Heathrow T2. I've accessed it flying Economy as Gold and Platinum and then obviously flying business. Really nice lounge,fantastic food and wine and there are some really comfortable private pods to relax in. Bear in mind that its a good walk from the main terminal as its by the gate.

It is a nice lounge, and the food and drink options are very good from memory. As already mentioned it is quite a walk - I don't know why they didn't put more travelators in that terminal! I've also found on a few occasions that I was able to use the Star Gold priority screening line. Don't show your Velocity card though, just your boarding pass which will just say something like 'partner gold'. A bit cheeky I know but if it speeds up your journey to the lounge ....

Thanks guys.

I've actually just printed my boarding passes for the journey over there, and notice they state "Partner Silver" instead of Partner Gold... I imagine this might be because I was a Silver member at the time of booking?

Hopefully they can re-issue or update at the airport on departure.

Shouldn't be a problem, just get the boarding passes re-issued. Where are you departing from? If you're departing from SYD get in a bit early to enjoy the lounge. It's a really nice lounge with good tarmac views.
