it's been 18 minutes and i still do not comprehende
I kid you not....copied and paste from the OW website. I feel cheated.
If their I inventory fares go up, QR can get stuffed!
They're already restricting access to their Premium terminal at DOH to First and Business pax only. Go on add salt to an open wound...
now i get it
i feel you bro

TRB, the Premium Terminal may remain off the books for oneworld Emeralds travelling QR economy as they also operate a lounge in the main terminal at DOH. This is similar to Lufthansa's FCT at Frankfurt which is only accessible to first class guests, in addition to the Senator's Lounge in the main terminal for *G members.

TRB: that's an interesting pick-up, I'll ping my contacts at OW and QR for clarification...

This has to be the beginning of the end of the alliance structure. Too many conflicting interests, partner airlines relationships (eg QF/EK and VA and the rest etc) will prove to be the future. Just look at the advertising for BA/AA/IB/Finnair that's been floating around.
example - I won't fly qatar based on the earn rate but willl be happy to fly emirates with a QF code to earn better returns

Weird they do not allow OW FF pas to their flagship lounge. I understand that the Premium Terminal is out of bounds as this is similar to the LH FCT (as mentioned by Peter). Is the QR lounge at LHR available to high status Qr Privilige Club members?

Does look impressive from the Qatar website for a non-home lounge....
Obviously trying to pass it off as like their separate terminal in Doha (which is also off limits to oneworld elites in Y)
Text-link below so it posts

So on the QR website it says that the LHR Premium lounge is only available for F and C class passengers, not even their own top FF (unlike LH where Honor Circle members are allowed access to the LH FCT). At least QR is consistent.
Another question I have is wether if you are a OW Emerald travelling in C you would get access to the F class facilities at the Doha remium Terminal. Would be interesting to know this.
