After arriving from Los Angeles on an absolutely excellent Qantas First Class flight we stretched our legs and headed to the Qantas Business Class lounge in terminal 1. In all honesty, neither of us were really that hungry after eating such great food in flight, but it’d be n
ice to get some wifi, stretch our legs, drink a coffee, and yes – probably eat again because who doesn’t at least have snacks at the lounge even though they’re full.
- When: April 2018
- Where: Melbourne
- Terminal 1, Domestic
- Access: Business Class
- One World Sapphire or equivalent
You’ll check-in on the ground floor, but take an escalator upstairs.
The Business Class lounge is actually at the far end of the Qantas Club so don’t be fooled and sit down too soon – your boarding pass or status can get you into a better area.
You’ll show your boarding pass again here, before entering a more exclusive area that is less crowded and features a bit more option regarding food.
There is one large sitting area and another behind the food
In terms of quality…I didn’t really notice a difference between the Club and the Business Class lounge. In fact, both were nice yet very crowded.
Juices, Fruit, Hot, Cold, snacks, etc. The options were pretty standard for any business class lounge. Nothing to write home about, but nice nonetheless.
Nice lounge to grab a quick bite, put your feet up, use the wifi, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to spend longer in the lounge. If you’re like me and transiting after a long flight…it was a great place to refresh.
