    With 10 returns a year I'd recommend it. For me, it's the shower on a Friday afternoon before a 5 hour flight to Perth that makes it worthwhile. (Vodka helps too)

    Re: Qantas Club..What to Expect?

    I think for that price it is worth it. Especially if you are doing 10 return trips a year. I got it before going on a round the world trip with Oneworld when I was 23 and it was of great value for delayed flights and somewhere to escape the madness. Domestic trips were then a bonus. I also could then get to the airport earlier to grab an exit row seat and then had somewhere to hang out comfortably. I have now learnt some tricks to secure exit rows before i get to the airport.

    It is great when flying Jetstar as well because you get access to QP if the are open.

    Depending on how much you like drink, the QP can be a great place to start for you and a friends on those weekend trips away.

    It is tax deductible for work... case closed.

    I never questioned in it my first year when I went to Fiji with (my now wife) girlfriend. Just got off a bus, where a dozen other buses had dropped off at the same time for the aussie flights back. Moving past 1000 people trying to check in with attendants on "fiji time" and to the business class check in. Checked in within 2 minutes and straight to immigration before the pack was priceless!

    You will have these moments. Running late. Delayed connections. Departure at "0'dark in the night".

    Cheers.

    Re: Qantas Club..What to Expect?

    Is it just me or do the Barista's in the Qantas club make the cappuccino about 2 or 3 degrees lower than your average Gloria Jeans etc?


    Have noticed this at both Brisbane and Perth, I don't like my coffee burning my lips but on the other hand I should not be able to skull it either lol.

    Anyone else noticed this or are my old lips beginning to numb and I am slightly senile?

    And, if you do make it to Gold, the membership goes on to 'hold' until the day that you for what ever reason you no longer qualify for gold+, and then the membership will come into play again. Plus, if you stay up at gold for a while, they are likely to give you another year at gold to entice you back anyway.

    Re: Qantas Club..What to Expect?

    Access to Q lounge is available flying Jetstar, however, sometimes the lounge, e.g. Adelaide closes after the last Qantas flight so if your Jetstar flight is later you will not have the full access. A little arithmetic re frequency of use - Say you used it 10 times a year it would cost you $38 per visit but if you take a guest with you it would work out at $19 per visit which would be quite reasonable value. If you are travelling for business your $380 could be significantly less as a tax deduction

    Re: Qantas Club..What to Expect?

    Yeah if your in the 30% tax bracket that brings it down to around $270 or so, and on 10 trips you will probably use it at least twice, once in the flight out and once on the flight back if there are no other connections so even with just 20 uses that's about $13 or so a visit... Doesn't take much to eat in the terminal to equal that although the food offerings in the QP often aren't that exciting... Then there is a nerve steadying beverage as well... The showers can be especially good if on long flights or international flights....

    I first joined the Qantas Club at age 24 and have never looked back. It makes travel so much more pleasureable. The expedited check-in and business facilities including wifi more than make up for the cost IMHO. Why not try it out for a year and see how you like it?

    Re: Qantas Club..What to Expect?

    Qantas Clubs are a place to escape the masses.

    I have also found them handy when there is a delay as you can sometimes get information a bit more freely.

    Food is not great but if you need to a quick snack or a few beverages to make the journey a bit more pleasant go for it.

    In my younger days I was always late for flights. Now I'm always on time and still get on the plane last due to announcements in the club!

    If there are ever any flight cancellations or changes there are staff to sort it out usually without a fuss. You want find that outside.

    Ive just started using the Virgin Lounge. Much of a muchness but the make your own toasted sandwiches are a fun change from the monotony of the QF Club food.

    Coming back from London a shower in the Club at Singapore is worth the cost of the annual fee alone!
