BKK Lounges

Hello, can anyone tell me if a J cash ticket would give access to the Qatar lounge at BKK?
If not, are there any lounges at that airport that serve halal food which would grant entry to a J ticketed passenger?
This isn't for anytime soon, so current closures aren't relevant.

Thanks.

Technically a J cash ticket for BA gives you access to Qatar, Cathay and JAL lounges.

However the only of those open in the run up to the BA flight is Cathay. Don't believe there is a Halal menu / option there, but TBH wasn't looking for one.

Pre-COVID, Miracle Lounge on Concourse D had the halal food corner (it was a bit hidden on the right hand side and not in the main dining area that is located on the left hand side).

It's still good compared to a lot of European lounges!

Maybe you guys were in a different miracle - i think D is closed now. Just the one near F is opened and it has perhaps 20 seats, lacking aircon, and abysmal food. Really disappointing...

That one is indeed miraculously bad - I've been once flying AY and I left as quickly as I entered, and went back to trusty old JAL (CX had closed by then).

For the OP, for the timing of BA10, CX is the lounge open (if it is indeed open at all these days).

if I remember correctly the Qatar Lounge in Bangkok is a Premium Lounge, meaning only Customers travelling on Qatar in Business or FIRST can access it, similar to their Business and First Lounge in Doha, and is not open for status Customers. This could be the reason why the QR lounge is not listed on the Oneworld Lounge finder.

When I have travelled on BA10 I used the CX lounge which was rather nice. The JL lounge is ok but nothing special
cant really comment on the Halal options I am afraid

It is a Premium Lounge, but they allow pax on other J/F tickets too. I was admitted on CX J ticket.

Under normal operations it used to close after the morning departures at around 8:30-9am or something like that. Same for the JAL lounge. Hence, why CX is the only oneworld option for the BA10 departure time.

But then again, who knows what the word looks like, even tomorrow..
