    My wife and I will be travelling to rome via hong kong and london and returning from paris to perth via london and hong kong (unfortunately no direct flights available). The flights are economy award bookings through QFF.
    I would like to know if my wife and I will be allowed to use First class lounges in these airports despite not having first or business class tickets? Also where there are more than one oneworld lounge in the airport can we take our pick? I am a QF Platinum member.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Welcome to AFF skywalker :)

    Assuming you are flying same day OW operated flight then can access first lounge where available (platinum + 1 guest).

    To expand on Kiwi Flyer's post:

    In Sydney you will have access to the QF First Class Lounge (F lounges are commonly referred to here as "Flounges").
    In Hong Kong you will have access to the QF Flounge, but don't go there. This is because you will have access to two Cathay Pacific Flounges - the Wing and the Pier. Use whichever is closer to your departure gate, or check out both if you have time.
    In Heathrow you will have access to the BA Flounge in T1 (I think that's where the Rome flights leave from).
    Don't know about Rome lounges.
    In Paris you won't have lounge access - BA uses the AF lounge and doesn't allow access to QF elites in Y.
    In Heathrow you will again have BA Flounge access - in T1 if flying BA or T4 if flying QF. If flying CX (from T3) you can use either the CX Flounge or the AA Flagship Lounge. The former is waaaay better than the latter.
    In Hong Kong it's back to the wonderful CX Wing and/or Pier Flounges (or if you must, the QF Flounge).

    Your wife can be your guest in all of these lounges.

    Edited to add: I've just realised that you are probably leaving from PER, not SYD. I know nothing about PER International lounges.

    Thanks heaps Kiwi and Alan,

    In regards to your comment, alan, about no lounge access in Paris CX has a lounge there according to their website, is this not accessible?

    Not a problem about PER as we are leaving from SYD.

    CX departure from CDG is at 2pm, so the lounge hours will only be from about 10:30am to 1:45pm. And CX departure is from Terminal 2B and BA is from 2A. I am not sure if there is free access between 2A and 2B.

    You have to take into account the openning hour of lounge for airlines that only have one daily departure such as CX from CDG.

    PER does not have a specific FLounge. It's a one lounge does all (F/J/QP etc ...) and normally opens about 2 hours before your scheduled flight time.
