Hello I am Qantas Gold FF flying Syd-Paris via Dubai and LnHTW early Dec return early Jan Paris Dubai Syd. My daughter and her Fiancee are travelling with me, aside from Aus lounges (I have additional club passes) does anyone have Ideas how I can gain acess for both into partner clubs or Emirates in Dubai (Gold gives me additional 1 but not 2). All ideas, suggestions (tricks or cons) much appreciated.

I have been guilty of this one, with some degree of success. Enter with your daughter first and stay in there for a few minutes before sending her out to her her fiancee with your card and travel docs. they have that high of qa turnover in the dubai lounge that they never pay attention to the name on the card. in my experience it has worked about 85% of the time.

What's the penalty for being caught sneaking into the lounge at DXB though, I wonder? Stoning? Hands cut off?

It's not technically sneaking into the lounge, its more you left and returned, but when you left you forgot to tell your friend

Some of the high end credit cards give lounge access such as ANZ Black Frequent Flyer. This gives access to the DCA Business Class Lounge T1. You get Amex plus visa as standard and then get one additional card which will allow all three of you access.

Simply ask a solo traveller who is about to check into the lounge if they would mind helping you out as you have an additional guest you would like to bring into the lounge...

I've done this plenty of times and people are generally very happy to help!!!

I appreciate the assistance I hadn't actually thought about any of these especially the obvious of asking another traveller. Many thanks.
