Hi. I am flying from Sydney to Tokyo on Qantas business. Am I able to access the Emirates lounge in Sydney instead of the qantas business lounge?

Recently I was the first one in the EK lounge when it opened in the afternoon as I was also flying QF25 to HND...

Yep, and it's a nice lounge too.

Just note that access to the EK lounge is not available when flying on QF to JNB or the Americas, due to the terms of the partnership agreement.

Thanks for the information on this thread - So does this mean, I'm also able to access EK lounge as a QF Gold on-route SIN ?

Yes, but only if the Emirates Lounge is open. If you're flying on QF81, I don't think the Emirates lounge is open at that time of the morning. You may have better luck if you're on QF1.

Thanks @Mattg , I'm on the QF1 :) So I'd give EK Lounge a go this time :)

I had no trouble accessing EK SYD Lounge on August 21, with my Qantas Business Boarding Pass SYD to HNL. Am only a lowly Bronze member,

Heya, quick question : I'm on the QF1 on 19/09. I need to work that day (unfortunately) - can I go to the airport at, lets say, 7 am in the morning and ask to be checked in for QF1, so that I can work from the lounge ?

Update : I asked the same question on Qantas App Chat and the response was that I can go to the lounge WITHOUT a boarding pass and work then and when it's 3 hours before departure, I can be asked to check-in :D I'm sure it's someone new behind the computer today responding to chats :) Best bit was, I had to tell him that lounge is after passport control, so one would defo need a valid BP and passport to pass through :)

They may have been referring to the lounge in the domestic terminal? In any case, QF offers all day check in for international flights at SYD...
