Can I as a QF Gold FF use the emirates lounge in Melbourne prior to QF9, or only have access to the QF International Business Lounge? I am travelling on the domestic leg only in economy

I don't see why not... from the Qantas website:

"Enjoy access for you and one guest to Emirates Lounges throughout Australia, Europe, Asia, North Africa and the Middle East, whenever you fly with Qantas or Emirates. "

There is nothing specific saying you have to be on an international flight or similar.

I'm not sure the EK lounge would even be open for the QF9 departure time,

Plus they're known for their idiosyncratic access policies,

Bottom line: I don't know, but I'm guessing not, as EK don'y code-share on that route?

I can tell you from experience they don’t like it and prefer you to go away.

Strictly speaking it's allowed, but it seems the EK staff try to discourage it.

But by goodness it's worth trying to get in - a world apart from the MEL QF J lounge/bunker. I was in the EK lounge last week prior to a QF J flight to AKL at 1645 - quiet, comfortable seating, great food and wine, and some of the best tarmac views the airport has to offer. And it was empty.

Tried to get in as a platinum member and told it was only for people that had come from the UK and not joining the flight in Perth.

Yep, 20 years with QF, Platinum, LTG, all that....was told at check in - welcome in the transit the transit lounge was “ redirected “ to the waiting area.

Seriously——I’m a bit over QF.
