Admirals Club Membership + Reciprocal Qantas Club Access (master thread)

I am flying Toronto - Dallas - Brisbane - Townsville - Brisbane - LAX - Toronto.

I read about a 30-day Admiral's club membership that would allow access to AA lounges, and Qantas lounges. Based on this itinerary, would this membership allow me plus an adult guest, access to lounges at all of these airports? (Toronto-Dallas and LAX-Toronto are on AA metal, rest are on Qantas metal). As I understand it, Qantas has different lounges - which 'tier' does Admiral's club entitle you to use?

Is this 30 day membership still available? If so, is the cost still $99?

I tried calling the number on the Admiral's club membership page, but they are closed until Monday for the holiday.

Many thanks for your help.

happy travels. to find your answer, i went to google and searched for "aadmirals club lounge access policy".

go the specific lounge location you are looking at and you will find the specific rules for access. keep in mind the information found on the "guest access information" tab.

Thanks, that definitely provides some of the answers! Confused on Brisbane tho - the lounge it mentions (Departures Level 1, Gate 22) is the domestic lounge - but there is also a Qantas Club lounge in the international terminal - anyone know if that is also ok to use?

Doesn't the 30-day AC pass come with the normal benefits as a one year pass? I thought that the one day passes are the more restrictive.

It may do - I am not sure. Thanks to the link above, I've found lounges that I should be able to use at all, including a guest, apart from Brisbane International Terminal, I *think*!

Qantas has four types of lounges. With AC membership (year or month), this should be your access:

Domestic:
- Qantas Club: Access
- Business Lounge: No access

International:
- Business Lounge: Access*
- First Lounge: No access

*I can't find that in writing on either AA or QF's website, but I'm fairly certain it's true given that Qantas Club members get access. Hopefully someone can verify this from personal experience.

Make sure when you get the 30 day pass you get a print out or a receipt emailed to you that you can print out showing the effective dates. Just as the AC needs the membership card to honor a QC because it can't be looked up, QC needs to see a card, and the paper should do in it's place.


That being said, I've heard stories of it working and not working, so keep that in mind.
