This is a good question, I've never thought about it. Technically the entry requirements are just written as "Next onward flight must be on a Qantas^, Jetstar Airlines+ or oneworld operated and marketed flight.#". It doesn't define between international or domestic.

I have done this in the past. I was travelling MEL -> LAX -> CMH (Qantas ticketed fare) when my flight to CMH was cancelled due to mechanical reasons.

I think the 'operated and marketed' language will undo you.

The T4 Flagship Lounge is superb. Showers, F & B all great
Nick / townaz : Thanks for the recommendations for the AA Lounge, but I'm not sure the onward connection will be eligible as it is operated by Alaska (not a One World partner?). I could have flown AA for the domestic leg, but chose Alaska as past experiences with them have been far more pleasant. Maybe next time!
I thought the exact same thing until I read a review of the lounge on this site (by Chris) on April 27, which said :

Lachie77 entering the QF TBIT lounge is simple fast and easy and what's great is you have access QF tik/ alaska.i use this lounge 30 plus times a year just showing a QF p1 card when traveling a separate AA ticketed flights purchased in te US.i also am aware of colleagues traveling in bound of QF with layover in LA and traveling on AA ticketed travel having no problems with entry.worst case t 4 admirals club or with OW status the flagship.

You will definitely be able to access airside from the TBIT security. As you exit baggage claim (and recheck bags onto the conveyor belts after baggage claim), turn right and go through security there. That will take you into TBIT and up to the Qantas lounges.

Yes you can do this no problems. I did the exact thing about 10 weeks ago on QF to Alaskan with a QF flight number. Stay in the QF lounge as long as you can as they may deny you access to the Alaska lounge if it’s full.
Awesome, thanks for all the advice.
