A colleague working for a government office contacted the government travel provider for clarification. A rep from the provider contacted QF and this was the response:


Terminal 5
As Qantas does not depart from Terminal 5 there is no agreement for Qantas Club members to use the BA lounges located in this terminal.
The partner agreement is also not applicable based on the above therefore access to the British Airways Lounges located in T5 would only be for oneworld members (Sapphire and Emeralds which is equivalent to Qantas Gold and Platinum Frequent Flyer) and the standard oneworld Lounge Access policy applies – must be travelling on a oneworld marketed and operated airline. One guest allowed also travelling on a oneworld operated and marketed flight.

Complete and utter rubbish, as far as I'm concerned. According to the document with the link provided above, Qantas codeshares on nine BA flights ex-LHR and every one departs from T5. Yet they are not entitled to lounge access.

What a bunch of *ankers......starting to think that the unions might have a case
Does that mean if a vanilla Qantas flight (ie. not a codeshare) departed then you would get access? If you do, then I can only agree with your statement about self gratification.
