Flying out of SYD on JQ3 Sat 2 Jun 1800, wondered if there is a Plat flying at a similar time that could guest a mate into the Flounge as I have my complimentary pass. Be checking in dead on 1500!

Hi guys, as many of you probably noticed, I accidentally stumbled across el-cheapo J-class fares ex-RGN a couple of weeks ago - I found them whilst booking the following trip! Unfortunately I don't have status any more - so I'll be flying all of the following legs (bar one) in Y with no lounge access :(

If anyone is flying on the same dates, I would really, really appreciate being guested into a lounge (I've only ever been in QC's before).


Thank you in advance!

8th June 10:55 SYD-KUL on D7223 (I realise this is an AirAsia flight - but if anyone is flying that can guest anyone flying internationally, that would be incredibly appreciated)

9th June 10:05 KUL-RGN on MH740

12th June 10:10 RGN-SIN on MI511

12th June 23:30 SIN-PER on QF72


and


13th June 08:05 PER-SYD on QF576 (Flying J on this leg, so should be able to guest 1)

I am flying on QF001 that day, its a 410pm so I could try to guest your guest in.

Can someone intepret the rules for me "One guest allowed and must be travelling with the member". It doesn't really speicify they have to be flying with me, for what it is, we could have caught the bus to the airport together ;)

Ask nicely, I have been able to guest people in who were going to a different destination.

I also guested someone into the MEL Flounge recently who was travelling on a different (QF) flight. I just handed over the BPs and the attendant did not bat an eyelid. Can't guarantee that will always be the case, so I guess be prepared for a refusal. :)

Yes it does happen.
I personally would not be prepared to ask/guest a stranger/AFF'er into the QF F Lounge unless they are on the same flight ( unless I'm in F of course)
Friends and family are entirely different.
I realise there may be other views.

Alan that would be great mate even if we tried and got knocked back. We are going over with a bunch of workmates so if that happens he can just head on down to the J lounge and you and I can catch up for a chat! Be the first AFFer that I will have met and my first time in the F lounge so I'm looking forward to it anyways! Did try to PM you but your inbox is full.

If either or both of you have an Amex Platinum Charge or Credit card you can each get complimentary Priority Pass membership. The latter gives only two free visits.

At LAS TD there is (until late July when UA move to a new terminal) a United Club lounge which is also a PP lounge.

It's quite an early AM departure so maybe not worth the trouble - but hey, a lounge is a lounge ... :D
