Simple answer is it's not. That's deteriorated a lot since the last time I was there in Sep last year.

They seem to be working through the Aussie lounges first. NZ is on the 'to do' list. I read it will be a combined J & F lounge.

Maybe its more so that no one does a major clean in those chairs.
Or takes off the covers of the the cushions in a cycle to clean/launder them.
Another consideration maybe is no one wants to pay for cleaning.
It's all to do with money in the end.

No, not really, when you are providing a service to your customers. If it was all about money, there would be no cleaning at all! No profit in spending money on cleaning.

Those chairs are simply old and grubby. Needed to be replaced a while ago.

Sh, I see now that (am off bus now) that those chairs don't in fact have removable cushions and it's either replace or wash everything with a washer and sucker machine.
Maybe if its not money, its because they let everyone in there.
I certainly don't eat and drip sauce or drink or pee in my seat like that!
Hopefully its not poo.

Ah, no need to go there poochie. Food and coffee. The arms are awful too.

Agree the lounge is quite poor both in furnishings and quality of food offerings (when I’ve been there). A refurb is certainly more than a little overdue.

Disgusting. I'd be writing to Qantas' Facebook or Twitter. Not that it does anything, but it's good to keep the public pressure on them.

Not something I'd expect to QF standards. Agreed with the disgusting upkeep, which is something I'd expect in a private home's lounge room, rather than an airline's lounge.

Next time they’ll get brown seat covers so that we’re none the wiser. (What an interesting phrase is ‘none the wiser’).

Was in the Auckland QF lounge last week - I will just let these pictures do the talking..

How is this in any way acceptable???
Just two photos (of the same thing) and no further detail does not align with your thread title. If the pictures are to "do the talking", they have very little say.
