    It's horrid (my personal opinion) - and the lounge access page has lost a lot of the information it used to have (fact!).

    Inaccurate too, e.g. claims the domestic J lounge at MEL is only J/F pax, nothing about OWE. And apparently no one has access to the F lounge! :)

    So QF, QR and LA have access to the MEL First lounge. Apparently not CX, BA, UL etc?

    Agreed. Awful.

    And isn't "One bright alliance" as a slogan more suited to Star than oneworld?

    The SYD INT J lounge (Qantas Business Lounge) only lists Qatar. Not even Qantas (apart from the name)

    I think we've had this discussion before. That's the internet 2019 style really. Gone of the days of easy to find useful information. Now it's all about looking good on a small screen. Those of us who prefer using laptops to access information (as opposed to conduct simple transactions) are rapidly becoming dinosaurs.

    ...and the QF F Lounge at MEL shuts at 18:30 too.

    What on earth was wrong with the old site. (As no middle-aged white male has ever said before about anything that changes!!! :p )

    That one's never been there, despite having been a year (a year today, I think).

    So after reading all of this I thought I'd check it out for myself.... Wow! What a terrible website. It's borderline unbelievable.

    First airport I looked up... MLB...

    Well there are no lounges at MLB, and AA is restarting flights from CLT and DCA this year.

    Was anything real actually announced? Just seems like different colours for their marketing, and a suggestion of new lounges sometime in the future. Have I missed something?

    Oneworld used the time of 13x CEOs to gather them all in London, cut a cake and take photos?

    The ad campaign is surprising. What the hell is it promoting exactly? Looks like an ad for an agency.

    No destination influence, no product, no emotional connection, no story, no structure, no call to action. What type of content is it?

    *ultra confused*

    A brief look at the “new” OW site it appears they’ve (largely) only listed lounge access for carriers that actually operate to the airport. And not listing access for non-operating airlines (which pax with status in those FF programs of course have OW Status access to lounges).

    That's how the old website worked as well.

    What is missing is the phrase about either any oneworld flight or only flights operated by the following airline.

    Which is especially relevant when third party (not *O) are being used by a *O airline.
