Is anyone able to shed some light on children accompanying adults with complimentary lounge tickets into the Qantas Lounge we were gifted ?

We are travelling to Cape Town next month and were hoping that our 2 daughters aged 16 & 13 would be able to gain entry with us into the Lounge.
We have been gifted only 2 complimentary passes.
Thanks

To my knowledge, each pass entitles the pass holder only so no guest allowed. Children are counted as one guest in the purposes of using a pass, so no, you can only bring you and another person for the 2 passes. Of course, being nice to the lounge attendant may get the wholel family in but a sure way to get in would be to purchase some passes. Whether thats worth the money or risk is up to you.

It could be tricky with passes. With q gold I've had no trouble getting my husband and my two children plus my daughter's friend (2×12yo plus a 9yo) into that lounge. The passes could change all that though.

I recently (October) gave 2 complimentary Qantas lounge passes to my sister and her husband who travelled out of Sydney to Japan with Qantas. They were able to get their daughter (2yo) into the Qantas international business lounge Sydney. Hope that helps.

Thanks for your comments.

I have phoned the Lounge on 2 occasions.
The first time the answer was that the children shouldn’t be a problem unless it’s really busy.
The second was each pass allows only 1 person.
Seems as though it may be at the discretion of the attendant.

I highly doubt they will let the two kids in on single pass (as opposed to club member or holding status with airline). I think plan for that not happening and be pleasantly surprised if they do.

Don’t forget they have 2 passes so officially 1 child per adult pass.


The rules allow them to decline so I agree with npaul, but the staff are very sympathetic to parents and children (and they also have a dedicated child area in the international business lounge), by experience I’m quietly confident they will let you in.

Ask a friendly faced fellow traveller , who is also heading to the lounge to take your girls in as guests . This has worked for us
