It seems QR have advertised scheduled flights out of BNE next year. Can't recall Aus Gov approving the route(I may well have missed the news). Is it a given they'll use the QF lounge(if open); Which lounge are they using now as I presume the QF Int lounge is currently closed?

As far as I'm aware, all lounges in the BNE international terminal remain closed for now. And yes, QR would end up using the Qantas lounge if/when their BNE flights are approved for regular service.

I don't think the government needs to give specific approval so long as the total number of flights to Australia is below their weekly cap which if I recall is 28.

QR have a cap of 21 flights total per week to the big 4 airports,SYD, MEL, BNE, and PER.

They can add extra flights to these airports only if they are going some place else.

So, that's why they flew to CBR via SYD, not to achieve the 15% load factors between SYD and CBR (because they couldn't pick up passengers for that domestic sector), but to effectively get another DOH-SYD flight.

All other Australian airports are quota-free, like ADL, OOL, DRW and so on.

They keep asking for more flights each week for the big 4 airports, but Qantas keeps opposing it, despite the fact that QR and QF are in the same airline alliance.
