    Looks to be targeted… "By invitation only for flyers aged 18-35 years"

      yes, age discrimination is rife in Qantas, they don't want any old farts getting free invites to their lounges! Messes up the "look" of them.

        What next, 'No ugly people allowed' signs?

        The actual likely reason is that they want to get engagement into a demographic who may not be traveling for work, less brand loyal to the national carrier or amassed much points and give them a taste of the perks of status etc so they get hooked, and might be cash cows for them in the future. Maybe with the perk that they'll Instagram it as well and give qantas even more publicity.

          yeah, in my younger days my thoughts were "but I can't get a <fast food chain> burger in there".

          Now it's "HOLY SHIT UNLIMITED WINE" and I'm happy. Hell, in Wellington I just wandered over, grabbed the bottle of glenfiddich and sat by the window when I had a 3 hour stint in the lounge. Work actually likes me having a lounge pass because I use that instead of charging a meal back (although said 3 hour stint they expected me to be working. Spoiler alert - no work of value was done).

        Ironic how the non 18-35s might be unhappy but they wont complain, even though its discrimination.

        Yet imagine the feminists having a field day, if the ad said "males only"

        • +3 votes

          So you think if this was females only, men won't be having a fit?

          • +6 votes

            @Bdang: No, We're pretty used to being discriminated

            Free entry for girls at clubs
            Ladies night at clubs/bars
            Skipping queues at various places
            Bigger/more toilet facilities

            If you had a hissy fit every time it happened youd have a pretty miserable life

            •  

              @hellohello123: Whilst I would agree with the others - I think you're pushing it with toilet facilities, by the very nature of toilets, the men's always has a shorter queue

              •  

                @trilby: obviously I was being a bit extreme,

                however I do notice that the ladies toilets seem to be bigger too eg more room for powdering your face, not just the number of cubicles etc

                I dont take it too personally, I just find it very interesting,

                eg the funding given to breast cancer vs prostate etc.

        Could you explain how this messes up the look of them. Aren’t business lounges always going to trend towards older professionals? This isn’t exactly a party boat or night club where having oldies is a bad image.

      • +3 votes

        Have you ever been in a Qantas lounge? It's full of older businessmen.

        As a younger traveller that uses the lounges frequently, I get it. Getting younger people to spend the money and prefer Qantas over others makes a lot of sense.

        I thought the price of the Qantas club was to keep the Millennials out ?!?

      •  

        And comfort discrimination - no flip flops :-/

        •  

          Get in, take a shower..flip flop around as much as you want. That's my method. That being said, I just miss out (too old for this deal)!

      • +5 votes

        Most airport lounges are full of those aged over 35, sounds like they just want to attract younger people to 'try' it. I don't think there's any discrimination towards older people in Qantas, quite the opposite, have you noticed the age groups of their flight attendants compared to most other airlines? Anyone think their BMI's might pose a safety risk?

        • +3 votes

          LOL their BMI posing a safety risk hahahaha

        •  

          Dead set got hit in the arm every time this overweight Qantas flight attendant lady walked down the aisle. At least with Virgin they are all reasonably fit.

          Yes Qantas are sometimes a bit older but those ladies know what's up and are great with customer service. Been drunk many a time when they realise I'm keen for a few and they keep them coming.

            @Ordinary Consumer: I noticed the hostie is changing. Males were a lot more solid. Woman knocked over my scotch with her doonk as she walked past (and didn't even know it).

            Perhaps for security, the bigger rig is in?

      Any idea how I can add the targeted icon on this post?

      Some should try sue them for this.

    Worked for me, even though I didn't get the email.

    I hope it doesn't work for too many people TBH. The lounge gets pretty packed as it is.

    Worked for me thanks!

    Has anyone actually got the lounge pass yet? I have registered and linked my QFF to the flight, but have only got the registration email

      they don't want old people clogging up the lounges

      I reckon they are just trying to get the younger folks get a taste for the lounge access and hoping that would motivate them to get a Qantas Club membership (recently 40% off too!)

    Nice offer, but still not worth paying hundreds of dollars extra to fly Qantas.

    • +7 votes

      Depends where you are going, but flying to Singapore; only additional about $150 in comparison to Scoot. Worth it if you need luggages and food etc.

  •  

    I booked a Qantas flight a while back for June. Can I create a Qantas Frequent Flyer account and then link my flight to still receive this offer?

  •  

    I'm booking a flight for three of my friends, while I use my points to go into business class. Can I buy three flights on my account and give them three passes?

    •  

      No, you only get one pass-one flight in total for this offer.
      Not sure if you can pass it on though.

      I know for the usual lounge passes you can pass it on, but unsure with this offer.

    •  

      If they register for Qantas FF it may trigger if they register, depends what the trigger is in their system. From them saying it has to be linked to the member number I'd say you have decent odds. They can get free QFF membership from an number of sources, not sure which ones are still current but there have been heaps. (Woolies, Uber etc)

    Ain't that the age group that drink alot

  •  

    Thanks. Worked for me.

  •  

    Best use would be ex-SIN/HKG/LAX etc. on the return, both in practical benefit and lounge quality. I'm LTG and probably wouldn't go Y, but will use it to pass on if I can.

    •  

      Can't use it in the LAX lounge and current cannot use it in the SIN lounge.

      The BNE lounge is pretty decent IMO. The HKG lounge has some nice food and cocktails.

    • +1 vote

      Looks like you can't use it in HKG either:

      Can I also use the lounge pass in an overseas lounge on my return trip back to Australia?
      No. Complimentary Lounge Invitations can only be used once, and for this promotion it must be linked to an eligible lounge from your port of departure in Australia.

      Struggling to see how this is age discrimination, it's just targeted advertising to a particular demographic. No different to higher savings rates for youths to try and lock them into a certain bank.

        Struggling to see how this is age discrimination

        The are providing a service only to a select age group and excluding others…

        it's just targeted advertising to a particular demographic.

        Can they do the same kind of targeting and exclude LGBT ???

        • +6 votes

          There are numerous companies providing services to those 65+ only.

          Insurance companies like to charge higher prices to those under 25. Likewise, men and women pay different prices.

          Males often have to pay entry fees to night clubs, whereas women do not have to.

          There are many women only gyms.

          Need I go on?

            @FiftyCal: They all have exemptions under the anti discrimination laws, as do some high schools that give preference to girls enrolling.

            Have Qantas applied for and been granted an exemption to the law?

      targeted marketing isn't age discrimination. Anyone of any age is free to use the Qantas Club (assuming you qualify).

      •  

        targeted marketing isn't age discrimination.

        Discrimination of price based on age is.

        •  

          They aren't discriminating on price. They are giving a free sample. Price is still the same regardless of age.

  •  

    Is this the same pass people sell in the Ozbargain classified?

  •  

    Do they have a different/better lounge for business class in Sydney?

    •  

      For the international terminal, no. People with passes use the same lounge.

      For domestic, yes. Passes get access only to the Qantas Club

    I'm 36 and inferior according to Qantas.

  •  

    Is this one for each way? So two for a return ticket?

    •  

      From the link:

      How many times can I redeem the offer, is there a limit?
      There is a limit of one complimentary lounge pass per person during the offer period. If you make more than one eligible international Qantas booking during this time, you’ll only receive the complimentary lounge pass once.
