Qantas Club access

Anyone travelling out of BNE domestic on the 9 April around 12.30 and 19 April around 09.30 that would be willing to invite me into the QP as their guest?

I have QP membership but am flying down to Armidale on Sushine Express and fear that I will be met with the 'computer says noooo' response if I try to get in (I am still going to try however).

Anyhow, if anyone is willing - please PM me.

Cheers

G'day MetroAir,

I will not be there, I have it on good info though that Daffyd, the only gay in the village will be there. I am sure he will let you in and shout you a Bacardi and Coke.

bigjobs,

I'm going out on 10th, but have travelled many times with Sunnies to Hervey Bay etc and always allowed in the QP.

Just show them your BP and keep walking!

Thanks Groundfeeder, I was going to try that anyway but if I got rejection I was looking for a fallback plan.

Thanks newflyer, I have PM back.

Cheers

MMM so i pay all this money

Hey in response to the question that you cant get in to a QC if flying another airline.

I pay for my QC and have never been turned away because i am flying another airline. Sometimes in the regional areas i have to fly out on someone other than qantas but i do generally get the connect. Does that count.

I have this argument with my partener all the time, he says you have to be flying them to use the club.

I am sure if you pressed your point enough you will get in.

Whats the point of been part of a club that only open part of the time if you are paying top dollar a year to use it.

Hi celtic_cub,

No. Under the QC Terms and Conditions, you must be travelling on the day to get access, unless you are a Platinum level FF. Here are some details:

www.qantas.com.au said:
Qantas Club lounges
When you arrive at any Qantas Club, QantasLink, joint Qantas/British Airways, Qantas/American Airlines® or Qantas/Air Pacific lounge, present your Qantas Club card, or your Platinum or Gold Qantas Frequent Flyer card, together with your ticket or boarding pass for travel on that day with a Qantas flight number.

If you are travelling internationally, you will also need to present your Qantas Club card or your Platinum or Gold Qantas Frequent Flyer membership card at check-in. Most of our international lounges are 'airside' and easy to find once you have gone through passport control.

Access to Partner airline lounges
In addition to Qantas Club lounges, you can relax in British Airways lounges (Terraces and Executive Club lounges), American Airlines® Admirals Club lounges and US Airways Club lounges.

To access a partner airline lounge, simply present your Qantas Club card or Platinum or Gold Frequent Flyer card at check-in and again with your boarding pass at the lounge reception. You may also invite a guest. Note that both you and your guest must have onward travel that day on a flight marketed and operated by the partner airline whose lounge you wish to visit.*

* Marketed and operated means a flight operated by the same airline whose flight number appears on your ticket. Includes American Airlines® or British Airways operated flights with a 'QF' flight number on your ticket.

Access to Associated lounges
You will be welcome at associated lounges in most international ports that Qantas flies to but where it does not operate its own lounge or partner airline lounge. Our associated lounges are operated by, or on behalf of, other airlines.* Present your Qantas Club, Platinum or Gold Frequent Flyer card at check-in and again with your boarding pass at the lounge reception. You may also invite one guest. Again, both you and your guest need to be travelling together further that day on a Qantas marketed flight.^ If you are taking a domestic flight, your guest does not need to be travelling.

* Lounges are not available in ports that are only serviced by Qantas codeshare flights.
^ Qantas marketed means a flight with a 'QF' flight number on your ticket.


Invite a guest
If you're flying domestically on Qantas or Jetstar within Australia, and on Qantas within New Zealand, you may bring one guest to join you in a Qantas Club lounge. Platinum Frequent Flyers are welcome to invite two guests. Your guests do not need to be travelling.

When visiting an international Qantas Club lounge, you are able to invite one guest each time you visit. Both you and your guest need to be travelling together further that day on a Qantas, Australian Airlines or British Airways flight. Platinum Frequent Flyers and their guest are welcome in the lounge, even when not travelling on Qantas, Australian Airlines or British Airways.

One's entry into the QC should rightly be connected to one's flying with QF or an affiliated airline, unless one is a Plat. I agree that for premium pax, QF relax that rule. We all know that boarding calls may not be made for these flights.

Now, a final point, are you a Celtic fan?? If so, then we're definitely going to get on well :wink: :eek: :D

Have you met some of the lounge dragons?

I wonder why then QF lists Sunnies flights on their website along with all other QF routes/timetables, if they're too miserable to let a QC member enter in this instance?

Yep the rules do state that

But i have travelled around the globe with One world and it worked fine i used partener lounges etc got in everywhere.


Then again it was all one world, so maybe there is something in that.

I did fly virgin once and all i did was go straight through carry on and said i would get my boarding pass in the club, went to the counter flashed QC card and when straight in.

Of course i didnt got to the ticketing desk.
:), omg, now that i have told Q will surely be placing extra securtiy.

lol

By the way a smile goes a bloody long way. Even said i would give one a big kiss if they could get me a upgrade to business from Darwin to Brisbane, and it worked. I did say i would pay with points but they waved it.

A Qantas Club membership will only provide access to Qantas, American Airlines, US Airways and British Airways lounges when flying with that particular airline.

However, if you have OneWorld Sapphire or Emerald status (QF Gold or Platinum FF status), then in addition to the complementary Qantas Club membership, you also have OneWorld lounge access rights which are different to the Qantas Club lounge access rights. A OneWorld Sapphire or Emerald member can use any OneWorld lounge (does not have to be the lounge of airline you are flying with) on the same day as you take any OneWorld operated and marketed (coded) flight.

So a QF Gold member can use the FinnAir lounge when flying on an AY flight, say HEL-LHR. But a Qantas Club member who does not also hold OneWorld Sapphire or Emerald status cannot use the AY lounge in that instance.

And a Qantas Club member can use the US lounge when flying with US Airways. But an AA Platinum member (i.e. OneWorld Sapphire) member could not use the US lounge since US is not a OneWorld airline. But a QF Gold member can use the US lounge with a US flight since QF Gold status also provides comp Qantas Club membership and Qantas Club members can use US lounges when flying with US airways.

So if you use any OneWorld lounges other than QF, BA, AA and US, then I assume you also held OneWorld Sapphire or Emerald status.

Update, well the first leg went fine, check in at the QC/J counter and straight on into the QP - no comment or bat of eyelid. They also do boarding calls for CQ in the lounge.

Now we will see how we go on the next leg next week but thanks to newflyer - I have my backup plan!! :wink:

A brother flew to CFS the other week and was invited by a fellow pax seated next to him to join him in the QF Club at the CFS airport. on arrival when they went to find it,they were informed that there wasn't a QF Club Lounge available,only a VIP lounge that was not available to them.
On returning a few days later he went past the lounge and saw people in there and asked the ground counter staff to get access and was rudely told that there is no way he could get in despite being a Club member.The airport is run by the local council and it is they who decides who gets entry.
This doesn't sound right to me.Is there anyone here can shed some light on this please? Qantas CR told my brother that he should have been given access and apologised.
