VA domestic lounge access for SQ passengers

Hello !
Soon I will fly Singapore Airlines from Wellington to Sydney via Melbourne, on flights SQ248 + SQ6823.
The SYD-MEL segment is a Virgin Australia flight booked under a SQ flight number.

Since I'm a Star Alliance Gold (through LH Senator status) do I have access to the Virgin lounge at MEL Domestic terminal during the transfer?
Does anybody know if VA recognize the Star Alliance status since the flight is a codeshare sold from SQ with a SQ number?

thanks so much!!!

No.

SQ elites have access based on a reciprocal agreement. Nothing to do with *A.
RTWFF and CPMaverick like this.

I'm a *A Gold with United and I don't get recognition on SQ codeshares with partner (non *A) airlines

VA gives some lounge access to DL elites on VA flights. That might apply if OP is a high tier DL elite and the same benefit might also be extended to FB elites since VA/VS are also developing close bilateral partnerships with AF/KLM.

DL status is not listed by the OP and is completely irrelevant to the question. It wouldn't apply to a SQ metal flight anyway. And no, VA lounge access it is NOT extended to FB elites, VA has no alliance with Skyteam or FB whatsoever... not that it is at all relevant to the OP either.

I guess this is how you get to 80,000+ posts...
