I’ve booked a few business trips over the next few months from SYD - KUL via SIN.  Travel between KUL and SIN is booked on Jetstar, albeit on a QF codeshare.  I’m QFF Platnium.


Any idea what (if any) lounge will be accessible in KUL?

nope, not unless you're booked on a business max fair. you'll get access in MEL and SIN to the QF lounges though. but you cant access one world lounges on jet star

Jetstar is not Oneworld so no OW lounge access.

I’m booked on a QF codeshare. That doesn’t make a difference?

Nope, because you're not flying on a Oneworld airline. Oneworld rules require a Oneworld 'operated and marketed' flight for benefits to apply. Your flight is Oneworld marketed (QF codeshare), but not Oneworld operated (Jetstar isn't a Oneworld airline), so no Oneworld rules apply.

KL has a few Plaza Premium lounges though, so if you have a Priority Pass card you could use that for access (or pay for entry).

3K departs from KLIA2, which is their budget-ish terminal with a small number of amenities, so better just rocking up and head straight for the gate rather than spending money for entry to the Plaza Premium lounge IMO.
