Actually did it yesterday for an EK reward on JL. Eternaltransit is right - EK (and QF and BA for that matter) seem to go out of their way to make it difficult to claim the reward on a partner...

Looks like F might be more permanent on the SYD-NRT-SYD route because I've just booked my wife and myself on there for a Oct/Nov holiday flying on a 77W. As JL use the QF lounge in SYD, can anyone...
