It's a quiet part of the forum but a reasonable place to post the question you did.

As Himeno mentioned, you can use any/all of the CX/QF J lounges. They're all pretty good AFAIK, although I've only visited The Wing. You can find a little more info about all the options here on the BA forum: https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/19779345-post3.html

Eh? Your question was clearly answered by Himeno. What more can we add? Simply saying "I agree with Himeno" is the sort of clutter that FT doesn't need!

Simple question: I have an avios return flight to GIG in a few weeks.

Can I get a South America pass for OW flights? if so how roughly much in are the various bands?

Thanks!

Im flying AA business from DFW to Hkg, then Cathay Pacific economy to Singapore. Will I have access to any lounges during my 4 hr layover? I have no elite status with either airline!

I believe you will have access to the Business/Sapphire lounges at HKG, including the Bridge and the Cabin lounges, on the basis of arriving on an international flight in J.

Retain your inbound AA J boarding pass as you will need to show it.

The only complication is that I suspect you are on separate tickets, so this is not formally speaking a "connection" between two flights. But I don't think anyone will trouble themselves to check.

Lounge Access @ LAX on November 20?

I've been away from Flyertalk for awhile now...but I recall there was a place where you could enter your "wish list" on a schedule and if someone was in the area that could provide you access to a lounge, then you just might get lucky and have a decent place to wait for your connecting flight. Trouble is, I can't find it (only saw an October calendar with just 3 or 4 entries and I couldn't tell if those were wish lists or people that were going to be there...I'm not even sure if it was what I thought it was anyway).

My husband and I are going to Puerta Vallarta via Southwest Airlines on November 20 with a 3 hour layover in LAX (landing at LAX at 8:50 a.m.). I highly doubt SWA has a lounge (ha!) but I would imagine there is a lounge somewhere near by that is decent.

Sorry for posting this here....I appreciate the "flame free" in the title.

I think what you are looking for is;
Travel Meet-up Thread - 2017

Not sure if you can be guested when flying Southwest, but worth a try.

Eh? Which part of Himeno's answer stated which lounge is superior? I've looked carefully again and can see no recommendation as to doing a lounge crawl which might be fun given the length of time that I am there. I was sort of hoping to get replies like start in lounge A they have the best champagne, move on to B for a starter of excellent dim sum, C has excellent main courses and wine and end at D as generally that one is the closest to the gate where the BA flights leave from.

But no what do I get? A pointless reply cluttering up the forum complaining about the forum potentially getting cluttered up. The irony of it all.

i believe the first reply said all lounges are similar in HKG.

if you want better lounge, you could probably try gonig to CX F lounge by asking someone to guest you in, or perhaps, using amex credit card for amex lounge.

Then in fall OCt-Nov to China, start in Beijing from SFO, fly out from Shahngai.

I'm moving this to the "newbie" thread for further comments.

We're all glad you are here.
Hi there,

I would prefer collecting tier points on BA Executive Club where I have Silver status so far. I need to travel from BUD to MEL again in 2 weeks and though Id normally choose Qatar for this trip as it is OneWorld, and I can collect Tier points, it is very expensive this time. Emirates on the same route is much cheaper, but it is not Oneworld. However, I found a flight where the 2nd leg from DOH to MEL is operated by Qantas. My travel agency would book through Emirates, I guess. I would not even prefer booking separate tickets.

My question is if I am able to collect BA Tier point on the QF leg of the flight?

Thanks for your help in advance!

I believe so (assume you mean DXB to MEL?). The language on the BA site is:

Executive Club Members can collect Avios on the following flights:
  • flights marketed and operated by Qantas or Qantas Airlines affiliates under the QF designated code
  • flights marketed by Qantas but operated by Jetstar booked as oneworld fare in L class only
  • flights marketed by Qantas or Qantas Airlines affiliates and operated by Qantas, a Qantas Affiliate, BA, another oneworld carrier, or another third party under a codeshare agreement
The bolded bits are the important ones for this - if it has a QF code and is operated by EK as a codeshare, you should get credited.
