No it does not. No change from pre covid. Only F pax.
I've flown on a Q Y ticket on EK metal and gained access to EK F lounge in Dubai and EK lounge in Sydney flying Q Y ticket and metal. I would imagine the same anywhere else. But that was when I was Q P. I will see if it works when I revert to Q LTG.

The London EK lounge has always been an exception.

Officially on QF metal, access is only granted to Chairman's Lounge and QF first passengers.

I don't remember which lounge at LHR it was but I recall getting into a "First" lounge but only those booked in first could use the waiter service part of the lounge. You could still order form the menu and food was delivered to you but you couldn't sit in the "restaurant".

That would be the BA "First" lounge - there's a dining area section off for those travelling BA "First".

Thanks, that was many years ago. Last lounge on my start of a journey from Europe in 2019 was the lounge used by EK in Madrid. It became very crowded with queues out the door when we left. As I recall the food was incredibly salty. That was the Neptuno, a partner lounge. Strangely Glasgow has an EK lounge.

Flying QF17 from SYD in a few weeks to LAX in J.

Can I access the EK lounge or will I have to make do with QF J? Have seen conflicting reports...

I believe flights to/from the Americas and South Africa are excluded from the reciprocal lounge arrangement.

Syd QF closes at 9 pm but will close at 10 pm in a few weeks time. (Also posted on "I'm in the QF lounge". Misses EK 413 at the moment but catches it later.
