In the domestic Business class lounges, Qantas does not generally put out cheese and crackers with the rest of the lounge buffet food. But there’s a simple trick to get a delicious cheese plate complete with two types of cheese, crackers, nuts, quince paste, apricots and sultanas. It’s the perfect accompaniment to a glass of wine while waiting for your flight!
Although there are no cheese plates on display in the Qantas Business Lounge, Qantas keeps a stack of pre-prepared cheese plates in the kitchen refrigerator.
If you’d like one, all you need to do is politely ask one of the lounge staff behind the buffet, in the bar or at the coffee machine. Although Qantas doesn’t advertise that cheese plates are available, the lounge staff will be happy to get you one if you ask.
Cheese plates seem to be available at any of the domestic Qantas Business Lounges within Australia. These are located in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Canberra and Brisbane. They can be accessed by Qantas Platinum and Platinum One frequent members, Oneworld Emerald frequent flyers and Qantas Business class passengers.
