Does JQ have a Priority Checkin for Business at MEL?


Jun 12, 2013
Does JQ have a Priority Checkin for Business at MEL? Am flying MEL/SYD on JQ out of the int'l terminal in Business on a flight that continues to Bali.. You cannot check in online for this so have to check in at the desk. If they don't have a Priority line fr Business and I have to line up with everyone else then I'll need to plan to get to the airport earlier.

Yes there is J priority line at JQ international check in. But it can get full quite early.

Yes they do, but at MEL T2 they have lots of kiosks that can be used for many flights. I’m almost certain that I used one for a Bali flight. Zero waiting.

As pointed out above, they do have a priority check-in - 2 desks. But these always seem pretty full and must also have economy class pax using them for certain things. I joined the back of the business class queue and was checked-in at a kiosk with the assistance of an agent who was walking around to help people.

i would say the priority queue saves zero time. Although you will get given a fast-track pass (although you could probably pick this up once you've used the kiosk to check in).
