Does anyone know if Lifetime Gold membership has a higher value when it comes to seeking upgrades on Qantas flights (i.e., is LTG closer to the front of the queue after Platinum+ and Platinum during the seat allocation process)?

No they are treated the same.

Nope. Only difference between LTG and gold is expiry date, gold valid for 1 year, but LTG are valid until you cancel the QFF or death.

What does lifetime gold actually mean when it comes to the on-plane experience?  Are you called out like Platinum and above members by flight attendants at service time?  Or are you just regarded as an ordinary gold member?  I have almost 8000 status credits of almost 7 years of solid air travel and I'm in my early 40s.  Would love to get it.

I'll revert to lifetime gold in July 2017 when my current year runs out as I've stopped flying QF for my regular business flights. I'll then just use them for holidays and when no other choice available so I'm also interested to know what the service will be like at lifetime gold.

I've seen no evidence of it being treated any differently.

I've had Lifetime Gold for a long time now and I find the service to be no different than Platinum One except when you get a really good crew, then they will prioritize you and give better service. I have converted to Singapore Airlines so I get Star Alliance (I am doing work in Geneva so I need Swiss) and I get Virgin Australia (of which I now use in Australia when ever I can and I'M platinum.) Loving it so far and trying to work my way up the food chain...

Got a LTG this year as well, even I'm currently a PO (Platinum One).
