Half the lounge is cordoned off, and it's reasonably quiet. Food offerings are "average". This lounge is way to dark - a little depressing (always has been). Missed the first lounge and it's lovely bright atmosphere. The QF app says I have access to the first lounge, however this is an error (staff seemed to have a route response).

It's better than not having a lounge. Glass half full vs glass empty. Yes QF should do something about the lounge, but it was unreasonable to expect them to spend a fortune renovating lounges etc. whilst they stood down most of what staff they kept. One could just imagine the headline being something like "QANTAS splurges on lounge refurbishments rather than paying staff"

Well another local Airline renovated couple lounges under same mentioned circumstances.

Results = greatly improved bright new lounges in Adelaide & Melbourne.
Far from unreasonable.

Er, how about now? Lol

QF1526 MEL - CBR.

Or CBR - SYD - AVV on April 3.

True what others have said about the food offerings. A few sandwich rolls on offer with a beer, or Vittoria coffee with some chokkie bickies. That said, the salad bar is nice today. I'd like to have the recipe – any idea what's in the carrot and barley dressing? :)

Seems a little bird has found its way in to the QF J Lounge too. Cute!

At MEL dom J and it’s the busiest I’ve ever seen, with people resorting to standing by the bar and sitting on ledges. Guests not being allowed - people trying to bring guests in (within their quota) are being turned away by frazzled staff.
