While having Oneworld Emerald I have visited the Qantas first class lounge in Sydney quite a few times now but never spent more than an hour or 2 which isn’t enough time to fully experience the lounge. Last night I flew to Hong Kong and arrived at the airport a few hours early to review the lounge.
First class guests on Oneworld airlines, Partner airlines and Oneworld Emerald cardholders can access the first lounge.
As you head into the lounge the first thing that catches your eye is the plant wall which spreads across the whole wall.
The second thing that catches your eye is the white marble. It’s everywhere!
The lounge has a lot of seating available as well as a separate dining area.
Qantas change their menu each season which is quite nice.
In the First lounge there are 2 conferences rooms. They have a printer, TV, ps3, Mac, Projector etc.
Ironically the kids area and library are in the same area, quite a strange design as readers would like peace and quiet.
The Qantas first class lounge is a great lounge. The marble and plant wall make the lounge feel fresh and very clean. The meals in the lounge are fresh and brought out quickly, The spa treatments from what I’ve heard are very good and the staff are friendly and attentive.
The lounge is fantastic for a few hours and I enjoy being in there.
