You will not have a OneWorld experience at Kansai! What QF does at KIX is, unfortunately, not relevant to JQi.SF& said:Travelling back J* starclass on sun. Osaka to Sydney. I am Platinum QF so which lounge is avail only the JAL if any? I will be coming into osaka on JAL.
The way I read it QF only has assoc lounge in Osaka. Anyone ...?

JQi flights are handled by the Japanese Star Alliance carrier at KIX, (even though they are a JL codeshare) :shock: . That means, you will be departing from the pier on the left, not the right.
As a WP your status is meaningless in this port! Sakara Lounge (in the pier on the right) will reject you! However, as a Star Class passenger, you will be invited to the ANA lounge! Enjoy.
STAR CLASS @ KIX = ANA LOUNGE ACCESS.SF& said:now that is confusing!!.
Just an update no ANA lounge access. Was allowed to use asaka lounge. It was very very ordinary.d15.in.oz said:STAR CLASS @ KIX = ANA LOUNGE ACCESS.
JQi +WP @ KIX = nothing.
The JAL "Sakara" Lounge at Kansai doesn't have showers... however Yen600 for a half hour, in shower facilities on the main concourse. (i.e. before you catch the train thing to the departure pier, but after immigation.)
Ahh - Asuka... it is confusing , (I thought that it was just another of brand of ANA's, rather than something seperate, so there you go - Osaka (KIX) Independent Asuka Lounge - LoungeGuide.net) So did you find a shower... And, Star Class impressions?SF& said:Just an update no ANA lounge access. Was allowed to use asaka lounge. It was very very ordinary.
Interesting trip I had JAL to OSAKA which was cancelled due to typhoon so i was put on MU flight so doubt if I'll get my points have to chase em. Anyway arrv'd Osaka had to transfer to the Jal side of the wing as the ANA side was not open so stuffed around a bit. Cldn't find a J* counter to get a boarding pass so hunted for the lounge then finally found it near gate 11. It hade donuts donuts and donuts for food, got in with no bardn pass or nothing just flashed my platinum card!! Didn't use the showers in the end. No showers in Asuka or Asaka lnge. It was jst alounge with beer and spirirts no food.d15.in.oz said:Ahh - Asuka... it is confusing , (I thought that it was just another of brand of ANA's, rather than something seperate.)
