I am flying a new route on JAL codeshare Mel - NRT - LHR (codeshare BA) - NRT - Mel in J. I am QFF platinum. I am looking for advice on best lounges to use at NRT and LHR. I believe I can still access the Qantas First lounge at Melbourne as I am flying on a Oneworld carrier. Many thanks in advance.

Yes, you can access the QF First Lounge at MEL flying JAL.

The American Airlines lounge at Narita has some of the nicest showers you'll find in an airport lounge. Also much quieter than the JAL First Class lounge whenever I've visited.

By the way the AA arrivals lounge is very good in terminal three. Tiny but nice showers and made to order b’fast.

Melbourne F Lounge usually closes much earlier than the JAL flight is called, so you end up in Mahaba regardlessI prefer the smaller satellite lounge at NRT - and depending on your transit time, it's basically deserted after the morning rush

Was at Narita yesterday for JL771 back to SYD. The new (partially open) F lounge at the main building is really nice. The dining section is big, traditional Japanese design with nigiri sushi bar and raman noodle bar. It was virtually empty. I spent about 1.5hrs there until boarding and it probably peaked at about 20pax.

+1 for the AA lounge's showers.
Thanks to all for the very helpful comments. Looking forward to my trip and transits, plus a nice stopover in Japan on the way back. Great responses.
