Three of us will be going through Dubai in Dubai with one of us having Qantas platinum, and all of us flying J.


Would it be possible for the plat member to take turns bringing me then the third traveler into the first class lounge for a meal?

Thanks.

Um no. Kind of common sense really that you are trying to scam the system.

But 1 adult and two under 17 is allowed, but 2 adults aren't, a joke if you ask me.


Edit: also I wasn't asking for the ethics committee just if it was possible. Many people sell Qantas points and lounge voucher which is against terms.

With something like this you can assume that it's been tried before. To manage costs you would expect them to be pretty strict about things like this.

At worst you can buy access. $200USD isnt cheap but it is a possible way.

or $100USD for the business lounge. Everyone chips in a portion perhaps?

This probably won't work because I imagine they'd be well staffed, but I was flying out of ZQN with three mates as a VA WP, but was only allowed 1 guest. The first time I entered the desk wasn't staffed, so I went in with the first mate. The lounge guardian came to check my FF card, but didn't scan my boarding pass. So when they swapped over staff I went back to get the second mate and bring them in. The third was alright staying outside.

Thanks for the help, yes I did see that spending 100 USD to upgrade from business to first, but I don't see it worth the cost, especially including the return.

Not in the same lounge. BUT if you were to move from F lounge to another (i.e. from Terminal A to B to C), I think that might be OK.

Ethics aside, I've seen it done a number of times. Firstly, you head into the lounge with Guest #1. Then you leave 10 minutes later - then enter again with Guest #2. I've seen it fail once and succeed twice. Really depends on the person on the front desk.
