Yes that is true. So does that mean BA will have to set up their own lounges at SIN and HKG? Or will thoes lounges be re-branded OW lounges but operated by QF (like at LAX).
From a marketing perspective, if the lounges are not branded OW, then its seems pretty pathetic that BA doesn't have its own branded lounge at its two key asian markets. Its the equivelant of not having its own lounge at JFK.

I guess that was the point of being in the JSA. It provided for both for BA, lounges in SIN/HK and a 'branding'.
Wouldn't think they'd now go it alone, the simple way via the OW relationship would be to brand the QF lounges as OW.
Actually might turn out a good deal for BA if they keep their current ex-SIN BA12/16 their pax would likely have the run of the lounges to themselves late evening with no more QF1/6/9.
Good point re BA12/16! But will this fly given that QF is operating and keeping the lounge open essentially only for BA! (I doubt QF bothers about the 3K/VF/JQ flights ex SIN!)
Sure there will be some sort of admin charge in place. But if its mainly BA pax then I should imagine it would be higher than what they're paying now.
Does anyone know what the cost/revenue models are like for joint lounges?

unsure.I hope THEY Provide a Service into Singapore from all the Ports they used to serve.Till SQ introduced Day Flights into Adelaide recently The Only way to Avoid Overnighting was to get the BA11 to Perth when that was around a long time ago and get the last Qantas of the day onto Adelaide.
