Lounge options at Johannesburg. I was wondering if QF Plat/P1 members have access to the Cycad Lounge at Johannesburg or we could only use the BA/ Baobab/ Shongololo lounge?

Hi Wayne. According to QF you can only use the Cycad Lounge if you are travelling First. You might be able to use the EK lounge now too.

EK lounges cannot be used in Southern Africa, NZ or North America as a part of the alliance.
Thanks guys. In that case, I guess I will probably just use the BA lounge.

Wayne, I assume you are on QF 64? QF don't even have JNB First anymore, so why do they still list Cycad as an available associate lounge?. Cycad is a SAA/Star Alliance lounge for First + SAA Voyager and SA Golds. QF Business use SAA Baobab or Menzies Shongololo, not BA Galleries Club. The latter isn't much to write home about anyway.
Hi Wilsoni, Yes. I am indeed on the flight.
