Yes. Finnair biz class ticket is good for any and all of the OW biz lounges in LHR T3.

The golden rule is : Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner in CX lounge followed by coffee/drink in Qantas Bar

Because you can!

I do note the OP is flying Business.

In my case, being Emerald, it's even better since the F&B at the AA & BA F/L's are far better than that available in the Qantas Pub.

CX is my choice for food and AA F/L mine for beverage.

because AA seems to be the only carrier who understands some people these days need WiFi at more than 3mpbs

So flying F through LHR is AA the better lounge choice?

Not for food.


Drinks, maybe.

i wouldnít even say for drinks. Depending on what drinks you are after it is probably CX F of the QF lounge. AA is a good choice if you want fast WiFi tho.

Last time I was there, for me the AA FL options were preferable than those available in CX FL.

Having posted that, it is a fine line and a definite YMMV.

Last time passing through LHR T3 at about 10AM, I was initally denied entrance to the F CX lounge, do to ostensible overcrowding. I went over and looked and came back to the desk irate, as it was not even 50% full. I eventually got in my pressing my case for a good five minutes, in an increasingly louder fashion. Not proud of the behavior but I really wanted the F section, which I was entitled to.

This was a year ago. I'll be passing through at the same time of the day (mid to late morning) in early January. Should I expect a similar obstacle from the lounge dragons?

thatís very unusual. I havenít heard many reports of that happening before, and itís certianly not happened to me. I am sure youíll be fine. If you have a chance please post how it goes.

I will. There is an 11:20 LHR-LAX flight, which is why 10:20 or so was protected. I'll give it a try as I thought the food was best.
