When are LAX and LHR QF lounges scheduled to reopen?

Website says they’re reopening in December. Any rumors as to which day?

Possibly the Business/oneworld lounge on Dec 20th when the MEL flight resumes (QF94). The SYD flight is already operating almost daily.

If opening is tied to Qantas departures, it may be open approx. 5pm to 9pm on the days when QF12 and/or QF94 operate.

Or they may open all day.

Re LHR, I noticed this post on the BA board today: Lounges situation in T3.

Friends of mine flew today from LHR, and were pleasantly surprised to find that the Qantas lounge in T3 had just re-opened! They were told by staff there that LAX opens next Friday

The menu was:

I walked by both LAX lounges last week and there was zero going on. All furniture was covered/stacked. Bars empty of booze and glassware. I have also been checking Accor's jobs site, and they have had nothing posted for food/beverage/service for the LAX lounges (Sofitel has traditionally staffed it). The 17th sounds optimistic...

I had heard the 18th for the LAX lounge to re-open. It would be great it it was indeed then as I have a flight out of LAX on the 21st and it would be nice to get breakfast in the lounge beforehand. That said, it assumes that the lounge will be resuming its normal hours. Not sure that will be the case initially.

Anyone knows if QF is still planning to operate daily between Melbourne and Los Angeles from April 2022?

Probably not until when QF resume F flights to LAX. At this stage at least March 2022.

Just read from 2 news sources that Qantas is planning to fly the A380 from LAX starting in just a few weeks from now, I'm keeping my fingers crossed they'll reopen the QF F LAX Lounge soon too.

It's a tricky one, isn't it... Qantas will be flying the A380 only 3x week at first (schedule wasn't even loaded when I checked earlier this morning, so no idea if this frequency will continue or increase in Feb) and is also offering comp'd upgrades from Boeing 787 business class to A380 first class for "top-tier frequent flyers" so a goodly number of A380 F suites will be non-revenue. In that case, is it worth opening up the F lounge – rostering staff, stocking produce etc – for maybe 3-4 hours per day for just three days a week? But comp'd upgrades it's not necessary, but for those who pay the F fare, there'd be an understandable expectation of the full F experience or at least as close to it as Covid permits. I'd not be surprised to see the F lounge remain shuttered for another month or two, in which case one wonders what 'extras' might be offered at the J lounge for F flyers? You'd hope it could be more than real Champagne...
