Lounge Access at LHR T3?

I am Silver with BAEC, purchased a flight through Qantas from LHR to DXB that is flying on EK metal.

I want to get into the BA lounge at T3 using my status. Is this possible, if, instead of going to the EK counter at check in, I go to the QF counter and get a QF boarding pass?

Every time I've been on a code share the boarding pass either only lists the operating carrier code or lists both but makes it clear who is operating it.

The EK flights aren't listed on the departures board in the BA lounge either.

I'd say you're out of luck.

I agree with layz, but I would give all 3 OW J lounges at T3 a shot- it will take 15 minutes tops and you might get lucky in one.

You can't go to the QF desk, you have to check in with EK.

If your flight is operated by EK, you won't have access to any oneworld lounge unfortunately. As noted above, if operated by EK, you must check in with EK.

You may be out of luck unless you have booked in J class or have QF status.

QF status is recognised by EK but not OneWorld status.

I don't think a code share will help, but it doesn't hurt to try.

The Business lounge is joint QF/BA so you may have luck there (by confusion)

Maybe post guest request on AFF
