MEL first lounge closes at 6.30pm, however business lounge is open until 10.30pm.  If you are QF platinum you can access the Tabua Lounge at NAN.

The Qantas website says it shuts at 2330h, which I wasn't aware of! Thanks for the question Merc25 and the response driley28!

Another place to hang out besides the MH and CX lounges when on those midnight flights!

You will not be able to go to the MH or CX lounge as the FJ flight is not operated and marketed by a OW carrier as it is a QF marketed only.

driley 28 I meant the MH and CX midnight flights and not the  Fiji flights.

I believe you would need to be a QANTAS frequent flyer on a Qantas ticket to gain access to the Qantas First lounge.

Oneworld status with any other frequent flyer program won't be recognised as far as I am aware, however as you are in business class, your ticket will entitle you access to the Qantas business lounge.

Emirates Platinum Skyward Members whose next onward flight is on a Qantas or Emirates flight number, and oneworld Emerald and International First oneworld Customers whose next onward flight that day is on a oneworld operated and marketed flight, are eligible to access the International First Lounge.

Correspondingly, Emirates Gold Skyward Members, oneworld Sapphire and International Business oneworld Customers are eligible to access the International Business Lounge.

Fiji Airways is NOT a Oneworld carrier.

Therefore this flight is not a Oneworld operated flight.

sdwylie, you are absolutely correct. My apologies for convulating this thread with the more general  comment about access to the Qantas International Business Lounge in the evening.

I have done the NAN flights often: if you are on a QF (not/not FJ) flight number (but operated by FJ) and QF Platinum/OW Emerald, you have access to the QF First Lounge - been there, done that!

Thanks for all the advice guy's (girls as well) as my flight is code shared with Qantas and has QF395 as a ticket code it looks like I will be able to use the first lounge if it doesn't close till the last code/share flight leaves
