They have previously had the brown Vittoria cups and would serve in those if requested - eg taking coffee to gate.
I would have thought that a perfectly logical reason!
Both the ADL and MEL lounges were serving coffee in colourful paper cups this morning. The paper cups were default in both lounges, but a regular coffee cup is available on request.
This is Vittoria's Xmas campaign. It has nothing to do with QF other than the fact that Vittoria would have supplied them like all their other customers.
And according to the OP, they were the 'default option' for lounge users. Its a lounge, not a take-away joint!
Oh, I get it, Vittoria might have paid QF to have their paper cup promotion in the Qantas lounge. Great! Qantas gets paid for enhancing the lounge experience for users. Win-win (for Qantas).
Enhancement #3,657 in a series. Next up - paper plates. And after 'customers welcome the lightweight and convenience of disposable dining', they'll be enhancing in-flight J.
