Can Qantas Silver use the lounge?

Only Qantas Frequent Flyer Silver members get access to the lounge. They may also be used to get admission to Qantas lounges while flying with other airlines such as Emirates and China Eastern, albeit you must have a Qantas flight number on your ticket to pass through the front entrance. If you are not a member, you can join at any Qantas office or online.

You can also purchase a day pass which will allow entry into the lounge for one day. This is great if you need to catch up on work when you return from holiday or if you want to use the lounge as a meeting place without being signed in as a guest. The day pass costs $60 for adults and $30 for children under 12. Members can buy a day pass at any time during the year for $40/$20.

The lounge has four sections: breakfast, lunch, dinner and a kids' play area. Each serves a different menu of food and drinks ranging from simple sandwiches to full-course meals. You can eat as much as you like and drink as much tea or coffee as you like! There is also a self-service bar where you can make your own cocktails or hot beverages.

Breakfast is served from 7am to 11am. Lunch is served from noon to 3pm, and dinner from 5pm to 9pm.

Can Qantas premium economy users use the lounge?

Lounge access is not included with a Qantas Premium Economy ticket, as it is with most airlines, but Qantas Club and American Airlines Admirals Club members, as well as Gold frequent flyers and other Oneworld Sapphire cardholders, have access to the Qantas International Business Class lounges when flying Qantas. Membership of these clubs can be obtained from their respective website channels.

Qantas Platinum Club members also have access to the Qantas British Airways Business Class lounges when travelling in First or Business class on Qantas or British Airways flights. Access to these lounges requires membership of both the Qantas Platinum Club and the British Airways Executive Club.

Qantas World MasterCard holders can use the Qantas Lounges during business class travel, while Qantas Visa Cardholders are able to use the lounges for themselves and up to three family members as a courtesy grant.

Non-members of these clubs can still use the general public areas of the airport, but cannot use the lounges themselves. They can bring one companion with them at no charge, but this person would have to pay for a seat on an available flight.

Members of Qantas' partner airline, Jetstar, can use the lounges when flying Qantas.

Can you pay to go into the Qantas Lounge?

Several Qantas airport lounges are now open to all passengers, regardless of airline, cabin class, or frequent flyer status. Of course, there is a price (about $A50-100), but this is the first time Qantas lounge access has been made available to all airport passengers. Previously, only passengers with enough points to be worth paying for a seat in an elite club were allowed entry.

In addition to providing free food and beverages, these new lounges also offer internet access, showers, laundry facilities, and car rental desks. The loyalties of these new lounges are likely to lie with passengers rather than with particular airlines, so if you're in an unlucky position where all your flights are overbooked, don't count on being able to jump the queue by paying for a space.

The best way to get into a Qantas lounge is still by being lucky enough to be able to show a current Qantas boarding pass. However, if this isn't possible then other carriers' passengers are usually not be given special treatment.

Even if you aren't able to fly Qantas, any carrier's passengers are generally equal partners in the Qantas lounge system, so feel free to share your room with another passenger even if they aren't flying Qantas.

However, it isn't recommended that you change planes in order to gain entry to the lounge.

Can I use the Qantas lounge when flying with Cathay Pacific?

This implies that if you're traveling with Qantas, you may use Cathay Pacific airport lounges, and vice versa if you're flying with Cathay Pacific. The two airlines have an agreement where Qantas passengers can use Cathay Pacific's lounges in return for promotion exposure on Qantas flights.

Currently, you can use either airline's lounge without a problem but there might be times when it could matter so check before you go to avoid any issues.

Both Qantas and Cathay Pacific have first class and business class sections, and they both offer award seats. However, due to Qantas' partnership with Jetstar, most of their business class seats are actually brand new (since Qantas doesn't have its own business class product anymore), while Cathay Pacific's business class is mostly made up of upgrades from economy.

In conclusion, yes you can use the Qantas/Cathay Pacific lounge at Hong Kong International Airport. Just make sure you check which one you need before you fly.
