    First Class Host assistance though C & I

    I have a Z class award from BNE to BKK via SYD coming up on July 3rd on QF1.
    I had rung the QF agent to pick my seat and she mentioned that as I was not checking in at Syd, I would be met off my BNE flight and escorted to the First lounge via customs & immigration.
    This sounds nice but is the first time I have heard of this.
    It will make life a little easier.
    Can anyone confirm this ?
    Also what is the current view on wearing the PJ's ?
    Cheers

    I havent heard anything about being escorted off domestic flights. Doesnt make sense as the domestic and international terminals are a bus ride away - is she/he going to catch the bus with you? I don't think so!

    Or, as I posted over at FT, Qantas might have an Aussie alternative:

    "Maybe they'll throw you in the back of one of the Qantas ute's/baggage trolleys sitting around the tarmac and take you over to avoid the b*us!"

    They didn't meet me off my BNE-MEL domestic flight and escort me to the ME Flounge. Then again, I suppose an midday arrival into MEL for an 11pm departure might not quite fit their procedure .

    But when I re-checked at the F checkin area around 8pm I was not escorted through immigration and to the FLounge. I was left to my own devices to find my way through.

    Hmm.. Maybe this is a service that they are only offering to those with paid 1st class tickets rather than upgrades?

    He came back to say he was mis-informed and that I could use the check-in but no assistance through C & I woud be offered. I was then "welcome to find my way to the F lounge". Given that I am arriving straight from work by train in the city, with a limited time -frame, I reckon that checking inside at a Business counter may be as quick.

    Has anyone had the experience yet on flying in Y but checking in at F? (since the new set-up began)

    A few may have done so already; there was a mini Flounge run happening yesterday.

    I will be employing Melbourne's F checkin facilities on Friday; will report back.
