I am flying Melbourne to Berlin via Hong Kong and Paris. The flights are booked through Air France and include a qantas flight between Melbourne and Hong Kong. That fight is booked with an AF flight now.
I am BA gold and enjoy using the QF first lounge out of melbourne. I am wondering if I will be eligible with this ticket type?
Thanks for the help!

If AF flight number, I would think not. I believe it has to be Oneworld marketed AND operated. I.e. Oneworld metal and flight number. You did not mention whether you are flying First/Business/Economy as you could get access to lounges based on your fare class.

With an Air France code on your ticket, you're technically an Air France customer, so any Oneworld rules are irrelevant. You'd have access to the Qantas business class lounge as that's the designated business class lounge for the flight, but not the Qantas First Lounge.
That said, Air France and Qantas do have a limited lounge agreement in Hong Kong, so you *may* be able to access the Qantas business class lounge there (although I believe it may only cover La Premiere first class passengers) - so then as an Air France business class passenger, you'd have access to Hong Kong's SkyTeam Lounge.
