It's totally NOT correct.

QF gold is oneworld sapphire. This allows entry to all oneworld international business class lounges.

Which airport is she at?

As a QF gold she should get access to lounge flying any Oneworld airline

Qantas have modified thier lounge access page. But as a QF Gold then CX*CX should allow for access.

Very strange.
Would be correct if on FJ (both previously and now that it's joined oneworld connect).

Assume wife is on the flight via CNS - CX146

Would love to know the reason why she was denied access as it appears to go against all rules. I would definitely be trying to get some form of compensation.

This should be followed up with Qantas Frequent Flyer - by email would be ok. I'd advise your wife to keep the receipt from the cafe (or extract from bank statement) and attach it to the email asking for reimbursement.

I assume she had the QF FF number in the booking/ on the boarding pass ? Not another FF program? That’s been reported - trying to get in with QF gold but crediting to another program. It sounds odd that she wouldn’t get access as anyone working at a QF international lounge should know who the oneworld members are.

If on a QF flight number - irrespective of operating carrier - she should have had access anyway.

Certainly in SYD 18 months ago, QF lounges were requiring CX to give you a lounge invite a t check-in as otherwise CX wouldn't pay QF.
