Yesterday I briefly talked about the new Qantas Brisbane Domestic Business Lounge and posted the press photos and said I would be at the media event later that night. Here is the full review of the brand new Brisbane lounge.

My apologies for the late posting, jet lag hit me bad this last night/this morning 😉

Brisbane Domestic Business Class Lounge

A massive benefit of the new lounge is the new Premium Entry facility located right next to the regular Qantas security area. Passengers in Business Class, Qantas Platinum and Gold and Oneworld Emerald & Sapphire members can use entry.

The premium entry is also joined up with the new Valet facility.

The lounge will have agents always available and will help do bag drop and check if you have access to the lounge.

Premium Entry has it’s own security which will greatly reduce time waiting in lines.

The look and feel of the new facility is modern looking and has a great warm feeling to it.

Just before the escalator there are a few seats free.

Up to the lounge, there is either an elevator or escalator.

At these desks is where you’ll be able to get any questions answered or help if you require assistance with anything.

You’ll definitely notice how big the new area is, I didn’t expect it to be a massive space increase but I was shocked to find it’s 30% larger than what previously was available and it can seat 350 people.

The lounge was designed by Woods Bagot and the colours and natural light are inspired by the bright Queensland lifestyle.

The lounge features a heap of comfortable seating and an abundance of powerpoints, a big kudos to Qantas for that.

As you can see, the large windows will provide great natural light and there is a great view of the apron from the lounge.

At the far end of the lounge is where the wine bar is found. In the mornings, coffee and tea are served but in the evenings, wines will be served from there as well as the bar.

The bathrooms have both normal bathrooms and shower suites.

And the new star of the Qantas lounges is the Mexican Catina. The Perth Business Lounge is famous for having a pizza oven and Neil Perry wanted something different for Brisbane, interesting and awesome concept!

Bottom Line

The new Brisbane Domestic Business Class lounge is now my favourite domestic lounge. There’s a massive amount of space, the food options are very generous and there are powerpoints available all throughout the lounge.

Melbourne’s lounge is on the cards for the next revamp but there’s currently no information as to whether or when this will take place.
