    Is there a QC lounge in Port Hedland?

    I'm sure I've seen one there, but I cant find any reference on the Qantassite...

    Does not appear to be any QF or Qantaslink associated lounges at Port Hedland International Airport.

    Are you sure you are not thinking of the private Golden Eagle Airlines lounge?

    No, I'm talking about the main PH terminal.... I'm sure I saw someone being let into a lounge right near qantas checkin last time I was there.

    Never mind, I'll be there in two weeks, I can check for myself!

    I think the room you thought was the lounge was the qantas managers office, probably letting someone he knew have some comfort in that room.

    Yes, there actually is a lounge at PH (having used it a couple of times), although it is hard to find and is not actually publicly labelled as such.

    It is through a door immediately to the left of the Qantas check in in the terminal, but the door is locked, so the check-in attendant has to buzz you in.

    It gets quite full about 40 minutes before the flight back to Perth (at least in the evenings), so it's worthwhile getting there a bit earlier. Nothing snazzy, but a couple of well stocked fridges and snacks - and a whole lot better than sitting anywhere else in the terminal !!

    Interesting, it's not listed on the Qantas Website?

    :confused:

    Is it really a QP or associated lounge?

    from memory, the plaque on the wall inside the lounge refers to it as a Qantas Link lounge, so on my reading of the Qantas website, that should mean that it should be listed.

    I wonder if anyone knows of any other lounges that are not actually listed on the Qantas web site ?

    Sounds like BME, which has the "Kimberly Lounge"

    I just got back from Port Hedland this evening. There is most definately a lounge at Port Hedland airport, of the same layout and size as those at Karratha and Kalgoorlie.

    The sign outside called it the "Qantas Link Outback Lounge".

    You are going to LOVE this....

    I emailed Qantas Club asking why the Port Hedland lounge isn't listed on the website...

    A QC rep just rang me. His question?

    "We have a lounge in Port Hedland?..... What's it like?"

    LOL!

    They are going to update the website....
