Well it depends which lounges you're comparing. I'd argue that the SYD F lounge is vastly different (and superior) to any of the regional lounges.

Thongs and jeans will be looked at as a major fashion faux pas in years to come. A bit like runners and jeans from the 80s. Qantas are providing an essential community service for the style deficient traveller.

If thongs are OK then what is wrong with singlet or swim suite? Where you going to draw the line? FWIW I cannot get how one can wear those stupid thongs anywhere outside backyard or beach, yet some managing even riding bike with them on! Also I do not like to seat in evers-queeze Y with neighbor in thongs, shorts and singlet. Unless of course she is young hot female model :-)))

A policy is a policy and unil it is changed, it is wise to adhere to it, especially if you are aware of the rules in advance. That said, on a flight out of Cairns earlier in the year, shorts with a wide selection of footwear, often more appropriate to a building site, seemed to be acceptable attire. It would be good if Qantas could use the term "smar"t to restrict accress to their lounges, but this term is too loose, so they need to be more specific, hence the thong rule. GeeTravel, be happy, they could ask for all passengers to wear a jacket!!!!!

Well, this Lounge dress code only applies to the main 5 state capital cities and Canberra.

took awhile..but finally someone who has correct info and knowledge...and was also clearly stated by QF when they made their media statement regarding this 'life changing' matter LOL...but also as noted by countless others, the original 'whinger', with prior knowledge CHOSE to disregard/ignore the dress requirements. So to them, I say BOOHOO..SO SAD..TOO BAD :)

Agree with you. Until they decide to update the policy, better be prepared than sorry. That said, I was at Mel QF club the other day (weekday), it was late morning and I saw at least 5 people with their shorts and thongs/leather sandels on. There were also a couple of guys fully dressed in mining/construction gear and personally I'd rather having someone dressed (neatly) with thongs on seating next to me than one with steel cap boots and orange vests.

Over priced blue demin jeans, they have particular stitching on the pockets that identify them.
