Does anyone know if VA has resumed allowing Platinum and Business passengers to access the lounge upon arrival? Thanks.

Short answer: No.
Attempted on arrival access (as platinum & flying business) on arrival in BNE on the Australia Day long weekend.
The first answer was no - due to COVID, but after explaining we just wanted to quickly change the baby’s nappy, we were allowed in.

Why VA lounge? Is there nowhere else at BNE to change a nappy?

I’ve been able to gain access on arrival when I’ve used the self service kiosk, but was denied when I approached the counter on a separate occasion.

Come on over to QF. Access on arrival always for WP’s.

Some of the responses above leave me wondering - is it time to change the name from Executive Traveller to Entitled Traveller?
