QANTAS CLUB BUSINESS CLASS LOUNGE REVIEW  - AUCKLAND AIRPORT

Qantas really has diminished the value of Club membership. While the staff were very polite and helpful, this lounge (like a growing number in the Qantas group) offered little other than a clean place to sit. Hardly worth the extravagant joining and annual fees. Extremely limited offering of food - even less than you would find in a domestic club on the Australian mainland. We ended up buying food from one of the Cafes outside. I managed to get a quick look into a couple of the other Auckland lounges. Qantas should be embarrassed and ashamed of what they offer their Club members.

Arrived at Sydney airport on Good Friday morning, tired and needing a place to rest, refresh, and have a cup of tea. It was absolute pandemonium in the lounge, not a spare seat to be seen, families sitting on the floor, and an absolute disgrace. This is our worst business class lounge experience in 20 years of international travel.

Was a relief to visit this lounge after finding our connecting flight was two hours late. Staff was very good from entry to inside. A modern lounge with plenty of spaces to sit and relax. Also was very surprised to find all the reserve table signs, be nice if someone explained who they were for. The food wasn't great, plenty of beverages.

Day flight to Singapore, the lounge was actually pretty quiet. Food selection (breakfast) was pretty good and actually tasty. Lounge itself is really starting to look old and some of the chairs very ratty indeed. Good selection of local newspapers etc to read, staff service was good. Its time to update this Business Lounge, it needs a good going over which has been the case now for the past 3 years.

Compared to Hong Kong, Qantas Singapore Lounge is not up to the job. Very sterile place indeed, chairs look horrible and are horrible to seat in. Food selection, if its Neil Perry its not up to it at all. Bar is good, service is okay. Toilets and showers are good, whilst there is a good selection of Australian newspapers etc to read. Overall compared to the Qantas Hong Kong Business Lounge, the Singapore Lounge falls down badly indeed, in terms of looks and quality offered.

It appears there is only a club lounge at Brisbane Airport and it is an utter disgrace, overcrowded. We asked for the business lounge and told that was it, many people had to leave as there just wasn't any room. If this is how Qantas treat their business class passengers, Ill look elsewhere in future.

It is ages since I have been greeted on entering a lounge with genuinely smiling faces and the offer of drinks. There is a bar serving the signature dish and a choice of good Australian wines. It's a very casual dining option if you dont want to sit at a table. The food was generally good with healthy options available and a menu to reflect time of day.

A rather packed lounge with lots of chairs but no view of the apron or runway, so boring! Freezing cold (outside was a heatwave) and when I mentioned this a member of staff said that everyone had complained - so do something about it! Several people left to warm up elsewhere. And why not? The food choice was not going to keep them entertained: there was no choice - rice and a stew. Little else in the way of food. Overall, rather disappointing when you consider how good Qantas lounges can be (Singapore for example). It felt as if no one cared for the lounge.

The Qantas Club Lounge was fairly acceptable. Very good food and drink with staff being courteous and unobtrusive. Nice showers except there was no bench or seat on which to sit down whilst putting on my shoe. The décor, deliberately industrial, was not inviting or comforting. Seats were OK but not great.

As an Emirates platinum member I am able to access the Qantas first lounge while travelling on Emirates from New Zealand to Dubai during my stop-over in Melbourne. It is not a massively large lounge but has never been overly busy when I have visited and in fact has been very peaceful. The restaurant is excellent offering great food and quick service. The staff are brilliant without being obtrusive. I prefer this lounge to any Emirates lounge and enjoy the peace and quiet.

Overcrowded, dark, noisy, dirty, full of rude passengers and overwhelmed staff. Was served scotch in a glass fresh out of the dryer, so scalding hot. Was cut in queue at showers twice by pushy women with kids in tow, staff helpless to enforce numbers, as no one on desk. Has opened before it is ready and without adequate staff to provide service required of an international business lounge.

Qantas uses this as a shared airport lounge, probably no choice. I suspect this was a oneworld shared lounge. Staff couldn't care less. The toilet had been broken into as the main door handle and lock were falling off the door. For an international lounge the food and drinks were woeful. The internet connection was difficult and rarely worked when connected, just gave up on it. I wouldn't recommend it but there is no choice unless perhaps you use one of the paid lounges, eg Priority Pass might be better. Seats were torn and the filling was coming out of many. At least it did have a flight status monitor. No blaring and annoying TV was a bonus. For an international shared lounge the reading material was very limited, ie basically non existent.

I know it's Sunday morning, but might the staff smile and acknowledge passengers? I always thank staff for clearing tables etc. and generally get at least an acknowledgement, if not a short conversation. Today - nothing. Not hugely impressed, as it's far better during the week.

Typically disappointing Qantas lounge. Crowded, grumpy staff and passengers sprawled everywhere with luggage blocking seats. I noticed many tables had reserved signs - in all my years of travel with Qantas, I was not aware that it was possible to reserve tables in the lounge. Food was generally ok but long since cooled down. Plenty of alcohol but no bottled water.

Just visited the new Qantas club in Darwin and it was fantastic and such a huge improvement from what was there previously. The design is modern with many seating options available. The buffet was well set up and the staff were clearing by tray which looked and felt premium. I enjoyed a barista coffee then took a shower prior to my flight in a very comfortable shower room. Everything was perfect and was matched by the engaging staff to welcome me and then farewell on boarding with a bowl of mints, nice touch. Great work with this new lounge Qantas.

Used this lounge flying into Australia. We entered the lounge probably about 9.30 at night and there was hardly anyone in there - probably no more than thirty people. The place is huge, very stark and industrial looking. As we were flying Jetstar, I wisely decided to eat before the flight. Plenty of food on offer, and ate from the hot buffet, black pepper chicken and delicious crispy skin mashed potato. My friend had the pasta and was equally delicious, all washed down with a couple of glasses of champagne. Went back a little later and had individual desserts, the best creme brulee I have had, a really good chocolate mousse and a liqueur. Staff were very pleasant, a comfortable place, albeit a bit cold due to air con temperature, but well worth the visit.

This lounge needs to be revamped as its showing its considerable age. The food selection has much improved when we were taking our day flight to HK. Hot breakfast meal available which was very good along with the freshly made to order coffee. Only gripe was the Apple Mac would not work and the staff could not get it to work either. Good selection of current magazines and newspapers to read though.

Used the (almost) new LAX Oneworld lounge for the first time. Not having experienced the previous one, I'm guessing this is a vast improvement on what it replaced judging from the publicity. Decor is pleasant & modern with good bar / food facilities (if very cramped). Biggest problem is the First lounge isn't yet finished. As a result the new lounge is like an overcrowded food court with people using chairs as tables and footrests for sleeping, that's if you can find a spare chair. The overall noise level is much like a shopping mall. There are also only 9 showers which seems inadequate for an international gateway port. It seems destined to become undersized only soon after opening. Having flown extensively on CX through HK & EK through DXB, this lounge falls far short of those facilities. The biggest issue is zero privacy or quiet space which are what most long-haul business travellers crave and get in those cities. I guess considering the hell American air travellers endure in North America, it's probably a welcome haven. But by international standards it's a falls quite a way short of the mark. Here's hoping the new First lounge makes amends when finished.

I had a late PM flight with a OneWorld partner. The lounge was quite empty but it had a lovely ambience. I didn't really pay much attention to the food due to how late it was, but I had a small plate of cheese and some lovely sparkling wine (and then a Jamieson as a night cap). It was extremely welcoming and lovely to be away from the disaster that is currently Brisbane International Airport with the renovation happening on L3. The bathroom was spotless and the few staff around were pleasant enough.

The lounge is pretty spacious with plenty of seating. I arrived at 3:30 pm for a 5:30 flight so had a good couple of hours here. Bar has a very good selection with some nice red and whites. A good selection of beer both local and international. Also a good selection of spirits and liqueurs. The food on the other hand is terrible. Qantas should be ashamed to offer this level of food to business customers. You could be forgiven in thinking that you are eating a sizzler. Actually that would be better. The toilets are clean but the place has a little bit of age. If you are paying a Qantas club lounge membership then you will be disappointed. Auckland airport in general is better fitted out than the lounge.

Qantas' International First Class Lounge/Sydney Airport, is one of the most best lounges i have experienced, aside from Cathay's Hong Kong First Lounge. The separate dining area is amazing with many options, and the personal attention is wonderful. Even later as I was there for a few hours prior to flying to Dallas, I had some items from the self-service area, which to me was quite an assortment of snacks to small meal-like offerings, and beverages galore. Separate areas for computer use, relaxing, the library, and of course views of the planes with floor to ceiling windows create private yet open feel.

I was looking forward to this lounge as it was the first time in Singapore. I thought I was walking into a cafeteria, all hard surfaces and noisy. The seating area was not that comfortable, low hard chairs with low tables. The shower and toilets were ok but I was travelling with a friend who had been there before the renovations and said that these had not been touched. Another thing is the dress code (or lack of it) - some travel as if they are going to the beach. I'm talking of singlets, shorts and throngs, can't they buy a $5 t-shirt at least and a pair of joggers. Come on Qantas lift your game.

Overcrowded, great barista coffee and accompanying muffins, avoid the basic, boring usual items and wait for the good stuff on the plane. Breakfast is the usual fair, chipolata sausages, cold hash browns, soggy tomatoes. Lunch is usually soup and a selection of rolls. The food in here doesn't match the decor, even if it is hard to find a seat! Friendly staff make up for the lack of choice in food, and beverages are pretty good.

I guess if you come from Sydney or Melbourne you are spoilt by the QF first class lounges which are amongst the best anywhere particularly on the catering front and I also guess you shouldn't expect anything special airline wise in the US but really the all in one world first class lounge in Lax is pretty ordinary. Given most really long hauls like to Australia leave very late one would expect an option to eat before boarding. Well you can have snacks but that is about it. The other thing about this lounge and the business class lounge is finding them. They are on the 5th floor but given entry through immigration at the tom Bradley terminal is a bit like entering the corridors of an underground prison the narrow corridors and lack of signage give little indication of where to go for anything. Incredibly on the 3rd floor which is the departure level there is a completely new world of shops and glitz so why can't Qantas get with the new Tom Bradley theme. The other thing is the very good BA/Qantas premium check in area is gone. Now if want to check in early because your hotel has thrown you out it is an all in check in affair which despite the sign saying business/ first class means nothing. For those of you have tried to understand the psyche of the US travel who wants to pay nothing for the airfare but then argue at check in for a first class seat delays can be considerable.

For years this lounge has shared what must be a 56k dial-up Internet connection. For business travellers hoping for last minute skype, e-mail, etc before the 14-15hr flight back to oz forget it. Better staying in AA T4 and catching a late shuttle to Tom Bradley. It is consistently (6 times per year since this new lounge format opened) so bad I cannot begin to describe.

Qantas have now rescheduled most Asian flights for mid morning departures. Also departing at this time are flights to all New Zealand airports and South Africa!! Plus don't forget all the One-World and other carriers that also use this Lounge. You do not need to be a genius to work out that this means massive over-crowding in one small time slot. Yet another diminution of the Qantas brand. A previously really good lounge with great food, services and staff but never designed for the traffic in this time slot.

Unlike the scrum of the Qantas club through the door, the business lounge at Melbourne seemed very sedate. We arrived at that time in-between breakfast finishing but being too early for lunch so there weren't too much food options available for us. The lattes were expertly made I have to say but would have been nice to have had some sort of biscuit/cake to go with them. Soft drinks were via a soda dispenser but the glasses are tiny - more designed for adding a mixer to alcohol than for someone wanting just a pure glass of Sprite. Plenty of magazines/newspapers to read or you can watch the world go by looking out the big windows that overlook the gates. Free and unlimited wifi was available in the lounge.

Had a 2 hour visit to this lounge courtesy of Air New Zealand. Lots of seating, with armchairs, sofas and dining areas. Several TV screens with 2 large surrounded by comfy seating. Several shower/toilets, well maintained and clean although unsure if how to get a towel if you needed a shower. There was a selection of drinks, including spirits, soft drinks and coffee/Tea. Overall there was a nice feeling to the lounge, light roomy and welcoming. Unfortunately food was lacking in choice, cold selection was ok, salad, cold meat and cheese. As for the hot food there was curry and nothing else. No choice and no rice to accompany the dish. This must be the worst business lounge for hot food choice anywhere. As for dessert there was a choice of chocolate brownies and lollies. Once again very disappointing. This would definitely put me off using Qantas Business class especially as this was the international Lounge. Overall good if you want to have a drink and relax, but Don't go in to eat.

A zoo. Used the lounge on 6 July 0830-0930 en route to Singapore. The place was packed to the rafters and seating difficult to find, tables a mess of post breakfast debris, and the decor is really showing its age - especially if you compare it with the First Class lounge next door. Australians are great lounge users through the QF Club membership scheme consequently international BC lounges are heavily used by economy travelling but club member passengers. Domestically Qantas has come to realise that Business class paying passengers deserve their dedicated lounges away from the scrum of the club, it's now time Qantas realised that international customers paying a hefty premium to stay loyal to Qantas.

Visited early May and was surprised by the experience after reading some bad reviews for LAX. I assume this was the new lounge in the Tom Bradley terminal. There were 3 large screen TV's with NBA, MLB and NHL being televised. Bar service great with loads of choice as well as a self service area. More than enough space before our flight to Sydney at 10.10pm in the evening with a number of laptops available. Food selection not quite as good as Emirates Lounges but still adequate. Definitely recommend.

I fly in and out of Singapore on business frequently and naturally I was keen to visit the newly renovated Qantas lounge. Whoever designed this lounge has obviously never had to do business in an airport lounge. It has been transformed into a noisy cafeteria styled open lounge. The hard surfaces (walls and floor) create a vast noisy cavern with no consideration for acoustics. Qantas has completely overlooked the business class traveller here. There are no work stations or desk areas and if you need to print anything, you have to go to the check in desk to collect your private and personal documents. I'm standing at a chest height bar trying to use the laptop as every table is full. If I sit down my hands are at shoulder height trying to type. Despite a good bar and what looks to be a good food selection, this lounge is no better than the basic Qantas Club lounge in Sydney or Melbourne.

Although the first class lounge has been in operation or a few years now and the standard of service in the restaurant is first class (run by Sofitel) the amenities provided (moisturiser, razors, etc.) have all but disappeared. There wasn't even a toothbrush to be had and I had to go to the desk to ask for one. Considering what one pays for business and first class with Qantas compared to some other airlines I would have expected better.

Got a complimentary Qantas Club pass from my partner to use on my trip SYD-SIN-SYD last month. Decided not to use it on the lounge in Sydney Int'l Airport as it is always crowded but on Singapore Lounge. My choice proved me right, the new lounge is great, there are more seats inside the lounge with power supply and USB charging. Staff fabulous and tables are cleaned when guests left. Bars well stock and the buffets and menu are good.

Sydney International Business lounge is spacious with a modern decor. Around 13:00, once the lunchtime flights to LAX and Singapore depart, it's quiet. The informal 'island dining' was pleasant, and there were additional food buffets - including a very tasty Fijian style goat curry. The gelato bar was a nice touch - only 6 varieties but a nice after meal palette cleanser. There are ample Australian wines (no Champagne), top shelf spirits (but no malt whisky), international and Australian beers and soft drinks. A barista is present to make coffees. The staff were extremely pleasant - perhaps because of the early afternoon lull they had more time to interact with the few passengers waiting for the late afternoon flight to Dubai/LHR and were happy to have a chat. The vista is nothing special - though you can watch plane movements across the apron if that's your thing. Altogether a pleasant and enjoyable experience, and a nice way to start a holiday.

Had Use of this lounge on the way to Frankfurt via Ho Chi Min City as Vietnam Air and Qantas codeshare on this leg of the Trip. It may need a bit of an update with furnishings but the staff and food are way above most other lounges. The most impressive thing in this lounge is the showers and the selection of drinks both Alcoholic and non. People who complain should visit the Star Alliance lounge in Frankfurt or one of the lounges at Gatwick.

Compared to the excellent Business Lounge, the First Class Lounge does not offer any additional value. It's smaller and at certain times quite full. I would recommend the Business Lounge next to it if it's too full in the First Lounge.

The new lounge in hadn't opened on our way thru to HKT on 8th April but had by the time we came back on 16th April. What a disappointment! Being Platinum I was led to believe it was like the brilliant First class lounge in Sydney. Not so. How about no computers or showers! How about sitting cafeteria style with bowls of buns in spots along the table where you would have to request another diner to "pass the bread please". It really is just so average. We had to go back to the BA lounge to use a computer. I thought it was a First class lounge but it is open to everyone from Qantas Club to Business class and everyone in between by the look of it. On the other hand the staff were fantastic and will obviously enjoy working in their new environment.
