Hi, flying HCM to Melbourne Jetstar Business. I am a Gold FF and wondering about lounge options for HCM? Many thanks.

There's no OneWorld-operated lounge at SGN. A number of OneWorld carriers use the Apricot Lounge on contract. Jetstar is not a OneWorld carrier.anyway, so even if there were a OneWorld lounge, you'd only get in if you had a QF codeshare ticket. The Apricot Lounge however does allow paid admission for USD30 - see Google for help..

No lounge access. Even Jetstar Business Max passengers don't get lounge access in Ho Chi Minh.

No, you wouldn't: Oneworld rules require a Oneworld marketed and operated flight to be eligible lounge access. A QF flight number on a Jetstar aircraft is Oneworld marketed, but not Oneworld operated. The only exception is when the operator of a lounge decides to provide one - such as Qantas does for Qantas Club members and Gold/Platinum frequent flyers (but not other Oneworld Sapphire and Emerald members), for access to Qantas' own lounges when flying Jetstar.
Update - Apricot lounge would not accept paid access. We were directed to Orchard lounge and at $40US not worth the money
