Qantas Points Club Lounge Pass - Qantas Booked Flights Operated by Other Airlines?


Situation below. Apologies if a silly question as i cannot find a clear answer.

  • Looking at flight redemption using classic flight rewards from qantas website (have not booked)
  • am eligible for qantas points club therefore will have access to lounge using the complementary lounge invitation

  • departure is economy on a qantas then british airways to london

  • return is business class cathay pacific

Now, qantas site mentions lounge passes can only be redeemed on QF flights i believe. Does that mean when flying on flights not operated by qantas despite booking through qantas means i wont be eligible to use the lOunge passes?

Theres no indication in the booking that its a codeshare flight, just says its operated by a different airline

Let me know, thx

  • Not an answer to your question but did you not consider booking business both ways? When I’ve looked at this redemption the difference was not a lot of points - I think 70k or so?

    • Hey, yeah i have as i do have enough points but the dates i were looking at had no more business seats available.
      Looking at the peak dec 15 - jan 5 period.
      Thats if, theres no quarantine in london by then…

  • Is the flight number QF or BA?

    Usually, the flight number needs to be QF for the lounge invitation to be used. Also, can only be used for Qantas Club lounges; so can't be used on other One World lounges.

  • Lounges are closed in Australia at the moment. Just an FYI.

  • Yes you will have access if you booked thru qantas, as it’s a qantas flight, operated by BA.
    The risk would be the flights not going ahead or BA being bankrupt by then.
