Kicking myself for not knowing this, but a good mate of mine is flying LHR-MEL (not sure what QF#) and is a Plat QFF (but assume she is travelling economy) Was given P status from family P1.
Told her to check in at the QF First counter at T3 and make good use of the QF London Lounge.
I am only Silver and departed LHR bound for Mel via SIN about a month ago but have QC membership.
I THINK it was T3.
From memory no FIRST QF lounge at LHR.
Question: WHAT lounges can a Plat use at the same terminal that QF depart from at LHR and which is best?

The obvious choice would be the Qantas Business/First Lounge in Heathrow but she can also access the British Airways First lounges in the different terminals. I personally find the Qantas lounge to be pretty good but haven't been to the first lounges.

BA, AA (although this one is closed for QF2), QF, CX and EK.
Thanks all and especially jrfsp
They are all within T3, only CX and BA have dedicated First sections....

... and only the Cathay Pacific first class lounge is really worth visiting, IMHO.

BA first - is really for Platinum travelers not first class passengers (the BA concorde room is in T5) - this is an old and tired looking lounge, nice champagne and food is pleasant.

I'm Platinum and always head straight for the Cathay First lounge and don't bother with the others. It's quiet, had nice views, good quality single malt, nice showers and the wonton soup is fantastic. Always a highlight on the way home.

I always use the Cathay First lounge as always quiet when I am there and table service food is good. Can easily sit back and watch the tarmac goings on for a couple of hours. I used the terribly tired BA First lounge (if you can call it that. Its truly aweful) until Cathay opened up their current lounge and have also tried the new Qantas lounge but very busy and just not a place for me to relax before a very long flight home.

I strongly recommend the Emirates lounge for the quality of the buffet and the free flowing Verve Cliquot

Pretty loyal to QF. However occasionally duck into CX for the Asian dishes of the day and showers.

CX F lounge is the all around best; quiet, great shower suites, a couple of different champagnes (which Qantas doesn’t make available for Platinums). Also the ala carte menu can be very good.

If you have QF Platinum status then it's the Qantas lounge for the gin bar and the Cathay Pacific first class lounge for everything else!
