    Fat lot of good the lounge is today - so many delayed flights it was standing room only on both levels! Ended up slumming it out at Toby's Estate to get a coffee and a chair, then got called to the gate only to have my flight delayed by an extra hour! At least I got a seat in the lounge now - still packed though!

    Cool thread, I'm always happy to make use of my membership where possible :)

    BNE tonight, VA, checking in around 5:30 to 6 I hope.

    Platinum member so I can take 3 in.

    Same story on Sunday, about 2pm checkin MEL I believe

    Heh I was sitting next to some nice old lady (I'm 23 bear in mind) on the way to London from Sydney, took her into the clubhouse in Hong Kong, she had a blast lol.

    This thread is so long overdue. Up until a few years ago when I flew loads for work I was QANTAS wanker platinum and would have welcomed 2 guests in whether they wanted to hang with me or not LOL. Share the free beer I say!

    Mine was all domestic and these days I fly fairly rarely for work and it's all Virgin so have 0 privileges. Will keep an eye on here just in case though ;)

    Nice one Zee and others, a really cool idea. If you guys are interested in more options for lounge sharing, the Australian Frequent Flyer forum also runs similar threads - can't vouch for the character of anyone there but they seem like a pretty reasonable bunch based on the discussion threads :thumbup: http://www.australianfrequentflyer.com.au/community/2014/

    Anyone in the Qantas lounge this afternoon around 3pm? Flying jetstar and I've got one of those free entry things but it won't get the wife in and I don't think she would be happy sitting outside with the kids?

    I had a similar problem when flying to Hong Kong a few years back, I could access the CX arrival lounge due to my QFF Platinum membership but my partner was only Bronze and despite my attempts to reason with them CX wouldn't allow me to guest her into their arrival lounge.

    She wasn't impressed.

    This upcoming Saturday 3rd of May I can let a +1 flying Star Alliance at Sydney/Air NZ Lounge about 3 hours before UA840 departs. Also anyone flying out of Perth on a red-eye flight over east the night before who has +1 for Qantas would be greatly appreciated.

    Enjoy the 777 - hopefully it's a step up from the old 747's... I have the same flight a week after you.

    Yep I'm looking forward to it. I'm still waitlisted for an upgrade to business class which by the looks of the seat map I doubt I'll get so I guess I'll have to settle for the Row 20 bulkhead seating I currently have allocated instead for 14 hours. I do at least have my LAX-SFO leg upgraded which is a minor bonus I suppose.
