BNE: Brisbane Singapore Airlines Silver Kris Lounge

The SilverKris lounge in Brisbane is pretty small, however it underwent a revamp in 2008, and is a combined Raffles and First lounge, so the food and drinks are slightly better.

It is located tucked away under the main concourse, so you have to double round on yourself, and then walk past the duty free, and along the corridor past the tax reclaim office.

The Singapore Airlines Brisbane Lounge is a nice, quiet lounge.

There are comfortable chairs, good views from the windows, though not of the apron area. Alas the window only overlooks the road, so you can't look out at planes.

Seats are big and comfy, but there are no slumber seats. There is a TV which you can control (and a video under it), with CNN (Ch15) Cartoon Channel (Ch16) and Sky (Ch17) although reception is poor.

Food

Food was improved in the 2008 revamp in the Singapore Airlines Brisbane Lounge. There is a selection of hot and cold snacks which is regularly replenished.

For the lunchtime flight there are two bowls of salad (Ceasar and Greek) with hot meat pies in the heated cabinet. There are plenty of sandwiches in tight plastic wrapping, and lots of Sushi on the island bar opposite the main one.

Late in the evening there is hot food, with bowls of pot noodles, lots of sandwiches and a heater with chichen satay (peanut sauce is on the table below the heater) and spring rolls, which are very good.

Bar

The bar at the Singapore Airlines Brisbane Lounge is worthy of note: for a start there is a well stocked beer fridge, with bottles of everything from Crown to Harn.

There is only one type of white wine, and one sparkling wine, but two reds on the worktop.

Spirits are a bit mixed: they are above the meat pie heater: There is Bundaberg rum, Johnnie Walker black label, Chivas Regal, VSOP, and Gordon's gin.

Bathrooms

There are shower facilities and smart, regularly cleaned toilets.

There is one shower at the far end of the loos.

Business Facilities

There are four phone boxes on the right as you go in - in two there are internet terminals which are brand new and fast, however it has "Netnanny" which tries to stop you from looking at almost every site.

There is a photocopier at the far end of the lounge, to the left of the bar, past the newspaper rack.
