Mate I was at DXB when you posted... could have checked you into First Lounge (floor).

I posted from the plane @ BKK at around 7:30pm (BKK time). Were you on the plane?
Anyways, EK419 SYD-BKK on the 19th of Nov, QF Business lounge.
I hope there was no one looking for entry in Melb or Syd last week. I had a couple of trips but they were very last minute and being so rushed I forgot to post here.

Air NZ lounge BNE, can take a +1. Arriving around 3:10pm at International terminal. PM me if you want in, must be a VA partner airline
Do the international lounges actually police this? At domestic I have on many occasions used self-checkin to the lounge and guest people who've dropped me off - ie aren't even flying.
Yes - strictly.
I've once tried to bring someone in who was a partner of the airline that was hosting the lounge (Air NZ) but was not part of the general Alliance (I was flying Thai), they did not let them in. this was the Air NZ lounge in Sydney. Can't remember who the other person was flying with, but they are an Air NZ partner, but not a Star Alliance partner.
No more flying this year so no more lounge offers. Too much flying this year, only economy and back to platinum in 8 months.
So glad I'm on leave tomorrow.
Got a couple...
Dec 25th 28th, from about 7am at the Air NZ Lounge (I presume) in Sydney.
26th 29th Dec from about 5am at BKK
Can buzz one in at each.
Also have 7th of January in Manila, and 13th of January from Beijing.
All *Alliance partners only.

Similar situation for me. I've got one trip left next week, but I'm starting my leave (all 10 weeks of it!!) while interstate so my wife is coming with me and she'll be taking the guest spot.
Unfortunately I consciously didn't post any invitations for my last few jaunts as I knew I was too busy to keep tabs on anyone taking me up on any offers. Q4 in general has been manic for me, with jobs/flights sometimes being chopped and changed with 24-48 hours notice.
