Can someone start enforcing this rule.

I almost gagged in the Sydney lounge when a family came in all wearing thongs and then the kids went barefoot to the food area - gross.

I Don't really have the biggest issue with thongs, but walking around barefoot anywhere, especially a lounge should Def be frowned upon, if not actively discouraged

Barefoof/ thongs - all the same - so bogan - and that's why they are banned in business class.

Banned on business class flights? I know they are banned from all qantas lounges, not just the business class ones.

They should be banned from any flight.

Gross and disgusting 🤮

All very well banning something, problem is staff don't enforce. I see that frequently, on board and in lounges. Virgin are usually more proactive than Qantas. It seems to me that Qantas staff just don't want to get involved.

I'm aware of the lounge rule, but I don't think they're banned in business class on flights. I've worn them regularly SYD-MCY in Business and SYD-LAX in First and never had an issue. Don't see how they're different to Birkenstocks or espadrilles. The 'bogan' commentary is just snobbery - I have an advanced degree from Cambridge and have knocked back plenty of nice Montrachets at decent hotels in pluggers and nobody has ever batted an eyelid... If they did, I couldn't care less.

Not the most edifying topic, but can I say that more often than not it isn't the thongs that are objectionable so much as what they contain. Smelly feet or fungus ridden toenails should not be inflicted on others, not anywhere nor anytime. Thongs on feet displaying some degree of hygiene can be more readily accepted.

ROFL.... This has to be a joke "advanced degree and snobbery" in the same sentence?

I always say, if you don't like it, DON'T LOOK! Simple. I don't wear thongs in business but I don't see problem. People are so embarrassingly judgemental. If people are happy and doing their own thing, thats a great place be.
