Can just imagine 19 yo's running amok in the inner sanctum of the Chairman Lounge.


19 yo girls don’t “run amok”... they merely use all available internet bandwidth.

A friend of mine went to the Chairman's Lounge as a guest. He's been to the First lounges in Syd and Melb and he said the Chairman's didn't impress him that much. Smaller than he anticipated. My question is has any of the readers been into the Chairman's and what was their impression? I didn't get the email either.

Yes, I've been in as a guest. The physical space isn't amazing/too different (the decor in Perth was green - has a bit of a old school mens club fee to it), but there is certainly a higher level of attention from the lounge staff. My drink was continually refreshed without me having to ask, the club sandwich & calamari were great and served to be at my seat. It was extremely quiet with only about 6 people in the lounge, although I'd expect it'd be much busier in SYD/MEL/BNE vs Perth. Good to see it & would love to be a member myself one day!

Thanks Chris for the link, a good look into the rarified air of the Chairman's. I might get lucky one day to get an invite. I'll be sure to grab a bottle of red too.

Hey there, just joined AusBT, awesome site! Im QFF Gold and got the email, almost fell off my chair for a second before quickly realising it must have been an error. Just the dream made my morning! Imagine the poor staff member who pressed the button before immediately realising their mistake...

Sound's like they've been dealing with the problem all day. I just got the following in an email...

"Today you received an email from us meant for Chairmans Lounge members. Unfortunately, our team used an incorrect distribution list which is why it landed in your inbox."

Whoever sent that wrong email should be sacked. What a stuff up...

Really? Don't you think that's a bit harsh? It went to a subset of users... No data breach, just an incorrect email... Accidents happen...

It's not like they sent everyone membership cards.

I'm going to tap my FF card at the Chairman's Lounge entrance just to see if it works.
If they stuffed up the email maybe they stuffed up the entry access ;-)

Is there a special place called the Chairman's Lounge?
I thought it was just a status, but shared the First Class lounge.

There are some separate lounges in domestic locations. As you say, for international there are no separate lounges.
