As a lowly Bronze Qantas Club member, I am only entitled to take one travelling guest into the Sydney International Qantas Club with a guest pass.

I am wondering however, whether anyone has been able to get more than one guest into the QC using guest passes?

Also, from memory, generally how busy is the QC at SYD International Terminal on a Friday morning?? The reason being is that I am flying QF2 from SYD/MEL which leaves at 8.05am, so with check-in by 7.05, it shouldn't be that busy, except for the NZ flights which leave around that time??

Any suggestions / experiences would be appreciated :D

From memory, form June 1st 2004 you should be able to take in 2 guests without a guest pass and that guest does not need to fly either.

You might need to check the web site for the info as it might be only 1 guest pass. My mind is fuzzy about that.

Regards
Daniel

At that time of the morning the lounge should be quite empty. Having said that though they tend to be quite strict at the international lounges, only permitting you to take more than one guest in if there are children involved - they don't like splitting up families. They will also allow OW Emeralds (Platinum) - who are entitled to access the First lounge - to take more than one guest in, but only to the Business Class lounge.

With the changes from June 1, Plats will be allowed to take two guests, and Gold and Qantas Club members will be able to take one guest. You may take an additional guest if you purchase an annual guest pass.

Something don't quite add up here!

If your 'guest' doesn't need to be flying, and YOU are flying out from the International; and considering the QC is 'airside' (beyond the the security checkpoint - where you need to show passport and boarding pass)....... how does Qantas think you are going to bring your guest with you into the QC ???

The new rules may work fine at Domestic terminals.... but for the International ???

...... now I'm really confused!

I guess they mean your guest doesn't need to be flying with QF. They could of course be flying with any other airline to go through to airside.

Of course, yes, that sounds logical.

I was thinking, of those passengers, who bring their relatives or friends to 'see them off'. The Domestic type scene.... where you wave "tah tahs" right there at the boarding gate.

I suppose, that Qantas may be thinking, that we'll offer free admission (in the company of a full Member) to 'our' QC, in the hope that those visitors (who have tickets to fly another airline) will see how 'good' the QC is..... and either fly Qantas next time, join the QC, or both!

Mmmmmm.......
