    Hi,

    I have a complimentary Qantas club pass which expires at the end of August. I am flying from Melbourne to Hong Kong via Sydney with a 4 hour stop in Sydney. From Hong Kong I am flying to Athens via Heathrow with an 8 hour stop there. I will be flying Qantas to Heathrow then BA to Athens. Can I use my complimentary pass at Heathrow? Or should I use it in Sydney? I am worried that if I don't use it in Sydney they may not let me use it in London and then it will have gone to waste.

    Pretty sure you can only use those complimentary passes in actual Qantas Clubs, not BA lounges as QC members can when flying BA. So I would suggest using it in Sydney.

    You could always use it on the way back. I'm assuming you're taking the same route back? In which case, you can use it in HKG (between the 2 long legs), chance for a shower and a good rest/bite i suppose.

    The back of my complimentar qc pass states "invitations are valid for Qantas operated lounges only and are not valid for oneworld alliance airline, partner airlines lounges or associated lounges, and are subject to Qantas Club Terms and conditions".
    Looks as tho. Sydney is your answer.

    The pass can only be used when your onward flight is with Qantas. So cannot use it at LHR for the BA flight. But can use it at LHR for a QF flight departure from T4.

    I thought you couldn't use the comp. qc pass o/seas, but sounds as tho. you can according to your answer?

    sorry to be dense but if it includes partner airline lounges as a no-no, does this not mean, the pass can't be used o/s.

    i have a friend travelling o/seas that could benefit from my compl. pass if it can be used, thanks

    It can be used at any Qantas Club lounge, and that includes overseas Qantas Club lounges outside Australia. As fas as my memory serves, there are Qantas Club lounges at AKL, SIN, HKG, BKK, LAX and I think HNL. Other international locations are partner lounges.Technically the LHR lounges are BA lounges and not Qantas Club lounges. However, when I recently enquired of Qantas about being able to use the invitation at LHR I was told it can be used at LHR T4 prior to a QF departure, but cannot be used at T1 (at all) or T4 prior to a BA departure. For the purposes of lounge invitation validity, I was told LHR T4 is considered a Qantas Club lounge when used prior to a QF departure.

    I guess that's a benefit of the 'kangaroo route' JSA.

    Yeah it does depend when you visit the lounge as to "whose" lounge it is! HNL is a perfect example of that...

    Add to the list CHC and WLG and I think it's pretty complete. I think QF did have some lounges in other Asian countries, but can't recall them now.
