QANTAS: First Class International lounge to open on 19 April?

QANTAS: First Class International lounge to open on 19 April?

According to ET, who obviously have better sources than I do, Qantas will announce on Thursday (15 April 2021) its schedule for the opening of their international lounges.

The prediction is they will coincide with the creation of the Trans-Tasman bubble between Australia and New Zealand on 19 April – that’s next Monday!

The speculation is that in Sydney and Melbourne, it won’t muck around with just the Qantas Club – it will go full-on lounge by throwing open the frosted doors and plant wall of the Qantas First Class lounges to all eligible frequent flyers.

This is another timely reminder to wear your seatbelt when seated. Holding you close to your seat will protect you from the sort of injuries sustained on this flight, when unsecured passengers flew to the ceiling of the aircraft, and then came crashing down once the ‘drop’ ceased.

The hope will be that this is an anomaly – a ‘freak accident’ in casual parlance. If it is a systemic error either mechanical or electronic, then this is a larger concern for the airlines that fly Boeing Dreamliner 787 aircraft. Let’s hope it isn’t. If it is, it will pile on the woes to Boeing’s existing stack.


Bring on the salt and pepper squid.
