Hence I said QP membership AND PP membership and still less expensive. Or if not based in AU, just get PP lounge membership.OWS (Sapphire) is where it’s at. There are so many more benifits than Qantas Club. Especially if you are based in SIN you’re more likely to be flying with non-QF ow airlines (MH, CX, BA etc). Qantas club won’t help you at all flying those airlines.
But yes, if you’re doing a status run for more than 10-20% of your desired tier requirement, you’re probably not flying enough to benefit from it once you earn it.
OW ruby (ie QF silver) is sufficient to get you J check-in.I fly a lot for work but it's all economy of discount economy fares, so it's never quite enough to get the status. So I need to top up a bit. It really makes a difference to have the perks. The priority check-in is a lifesaver when running late from a meeting, and the bags when needing to get out quickly. (And of course the showers after a long day before the flights). It makes travel that much more enjoyable.
