Dropped off the rental in one piece and the shuttle bus dropped us outside the arrivals area of TBIT. Made our way upstairs to the departures area and found the SQ check in area.

Had a bit of a wait but was eventually helped and the check in process was smooth.

Thank goodness for TSA precheck as we were the only ones in line and the regular line was 200 people long. Once past security, we made our way to the Star Alliance lounge located on the 6th floor.

Gong show tonight as every seat was taken. Luckily, the outdoor terrace was empty and we had the space to ourselves. Food selection was meh at best but at least there was champagne!

We were off into the night sky eventually. Once the seat belt signs were turned off, we put Junior to bed and the crew started preparing meals.

Appetizer to start with delicious garlic bread

Book the Cook Chicken Rice - sensational!

Made the bed right after dinner and went down for a few hours

Eventually woke up after a couple hours as I was not able to sleep much and ordered a snack

Champers to start

Something healthy with something full of carbs ?

Red curry chicken - yummy!

Choco cake to end

Junior woke up eventually and wanted something to munch on - he went with the seafood mac and cheese

For the final meal service, he went with the pizza

As usual, the windows steamed up due to the humidity

Immigration was quick with the new automated kiosks and we waited for our bags which were among the first ones on the belt

Conclusion

Overall, a fantastic flight. I set my expectations low after experiencing SQ F pre covid but I was very surprised by the attention from the flight crew and overall friendliness, the delicious food and the comfort of the seat itself.

    TSA Pre-Check at TBIT is great because it's almost always empty while the regular security line is always HUUUUUUUGE

    The LAX Star Alliance lounge looks great. I wish the oneworld lounges had an outdoor patio like that!

    Thanks for sharing

    Thanks for your report. Sorry to disagree but at the Star Alliance lounge, Bouvet and Mumm Napa are not champagne but sparkling wines...
