    Yup - in fact I will only have a little over 2 months of SG left before dropping down to PS - I will be Qp for another few months though .... - I am sorely tempted to get WP - and if they were doing kerbside check in for WP then it would be a definite for to go WP as well as EXP ;)

    Re: OT (standard rant)

    It's a sad day when someone based in QAN's SYDneycentric HQ city, isn't able to justify loyalty to QFF (oh, well, AA is still 1W though, with a small Emerald/Sapphire FL/AC NA itinerary downcard [upcard of course is NA + system-wide bonus upgrades] ...)


    But I am assuming the only future for QF's WP status is downgraded, given SQ PPS’s move & QFF’s recent lack of written commitment to AccessAnyTimeQP.

    I have almost become convinced to fly J via Taiwan to the USA from 2008 (same price via HNL JQi *class + AA-YUPP767). (Congratulations to QAN group for making me think about paying more than Y! Poor move, delivering that increase to a competitor!)

    Assuming you are on a AY flight to HEL, you will be departing from Terminal 2 Schengen area you will not have access to the BA lounge (non-Schengen area). AY use the Air France lounge in the Schengen area of Terminal 2, and that will be your only lounge choice for an AY flight to HEL.
    AY have two lounge at HEL, one in the Schengen area and one past immigration in the non-Schengen area. You can visit the Schengen lounge first and then later pass through immigration processing and visit the other lounge. The two lounges are similar and reasonably basic as far as food and beverages are concerned.
    BA has a Terraces lounge at DXB and is going to be your best option (if not your only option). CX uses the BA lounge at DXB and their flight is in the evening anyway.
    There is no longer an Flagship Lounge at JFK, just an AAdmirals Club lounge. The only Flagship lounges left in the AA network are at LAX (thanks for QF paying for much of the construction and operation), Chicago and LHR T3.
    The only OneWorld F lounge at DFW is the BA lounge at Terminal D. You will need to have OneWorld Emerald to try it. I just use the AAdmirals Club lounge and use my QF card to get some drinks vouchers. I have not tried to use the BA lounge and it is only open for a few hours before the BA flight departure which I think is somewhere around 3pm.
    JL depart from JFK Terminal 1 and will have their own lounge facilities there, so no option for other lounges.

    Thanks NM - I have been waiting for teh resident FRA expert to get back to answer these questions :) Just a couple of comments

    I had been told that I could go airside and use the Admirals Club. I have five hours and at costs want to avoid an AirFrance lounge.

    That really surprises me. I know that DFW is the hub but surely most int'l flights depart from JFK?

    Noted. By then I will be OWE but given the dragons reputations I might just head to the AC.

    Thanks again - I will provide detailed reports on successes and failures at these bars... I mean lounges ;)

    I walked past the old DFW Flagship Lounge location on the concourse in Terminal A last week.
    The Flagship Lounge logos (below) are each side of the door and a sign indicating "Administrative Offices".

    I would not bother. The AC at FRA is very basic and its at terminal 1 so you need to change terminals. The only food is bread rolls with jam or cream cheese and some basic fruit selection. The beverages are also basic. You might as well stick to the AY lounge as it can't be any worse.
    I think you will find that AA has more international departures from ORD and DFW than from JFK. They used to have Flagship lounges at BOS and MIA as well, but they have all closed in the last few years, with only ORD, LAX and LHR remaining.

    Hi all,

    I am doing MEL-BKK 16/7 on JQ29 will be in new F lounge but have already invited someone sorry.
    COmign back BKK-MLE 22/7 JQ30 will be in BKK J lounge from 6pm as F lounge in BKK does not open for JQ flights till 8pm and when I went in there last month it was not very attractive. Preferrd the J lounge.

    Happy trails.
