We flew out of Sydney last week and as suggested tried to get all of us into the F lounge. The Qantas staff were great and after a quick call somewhere allowed the 4 of us into the lounge. Needless to say we sampled a fair amount of food and drink in there and admired the amazing views... great experience. Had a bit of a chuckle though thinking how many others in there were bronze and flying economy on the next leg!!
