With the A380 disappearing from the London route and maybe Los Angeles too, will Qantas close the Melbourne First Class lounge?

Even if MEL-LAX goes double daily 787 I don't see QF closing the MEL F lounge, it is a massive drawcard for Platinum/P1/Chairman, however I reckon we could see the spa close if F disappears from MEL.

No it will not they will even open for the late evening QF095 departure. It is to big a drawcard.

I doubt they'll drop the daily 380 to LAX. It's still the preferred flight for many travelers, even with the 787 replacing the 747.

That would be pretty dumb. The lounge adds a positive to the Q equation. They need as much positive as they can get! The restaurant waiters could do with better attitude though, a bit brusque.

What is your intel that there is a late night QF international departure from MEL?

We are booked to fly Melbourne to LAX on the Dreamliner on 26 March 2018 at 10.40pm so there must be late night flights.

Qantas has announced a timing change for the 95/96 LAX flights to a late evening departure ex MEL. (This is because they will use the same 787 that has come in from LHR - the pattern will be LHR-PER-MEL-LAX-MEL-PER-LHR).
