Emirates and Qantas—Planning your trip

If I am eligible for both Emirates and Qantas lounges, can I choose either?

We recommend that you use the lounge of the operating airline to ensure you’re close to the correct gate and have access to boarding calls and other flight information.
The only exception to this rule is lounge access at London Heathrow (LHR).
  • At Heathrow, if the flight is operated by Emirates and you’re eligible to use the lounge, you should visit the Emirates Lounge.
  • If the flight is operated by Qantas, First Class passengers can use the Emirates Lounge. Other passengers who are eligible for lounge access should use the Qantas lounge.
  • Qantas Club members should use the American Airlines Admirals Lounge.
