If a I book a flight (using QF points) to Japan through the Qantas Website and it's a JL flight. Will I be able to access the lounge with my Qantas club membership in Sydney and Haneda?

No, unfortunately. It would need to have been purchased with a Qantas flight number as a codeshare for that. You can’t access the Qantas lounge using your membership if you’re flying with a JL flight number.

If you book a J award (business class) you would get lounge access based on class of service. But not through Qantas Club membership.

And also if you book a JAL premium economy ticket or award. (That comes with complimentary lounge access... or at least did before covid!)

JAL premium economy is a real sweet spot.

I was wondering about that. I do recall that paid JAL PE fares did include lounge access before covid.

So JAL premium economy awards also/still include lounge access? Pretty good if so!

Seems access is based on class of service and the only restriction I can see is that PEY fares through 'upgrading at the airport' are not permitted lounge access: https://www.jal.co.jp/en/inter/service/lounge/member/class.html

JAL's paid fares were such a steal at $2200 return from Australia to Europe that redeeming points was hardly worthwhile!

Using the S26 Wi-Fi Smart Plug you can easily convert your existing appliances into smart devices to be controlled remotely with your phone.

Takes just minutes to setup!

$2200 return in PE?

JAL's PE is exceptional so that would have been a great deal!

Yup. Around $2200 give or take. Basically QF domestic J, including lounge access, for a return to Europe. Can't remember if there was a catch like a long layover one way in Tokyo, or changing airports or something in Tokyo.

If travelling SYD-HND-LHR the layover is 6-7 hours if travelling JL52/41 or overnight JL52/43 (still a through fare). From MEL it is more tricky as it involves an airport change from NRT to HND.
