The Tom Bradley International Terminal at LAX offers gates used by all the oneworld airlines that fly in and out of Los Angeles (including American Airlines). As such the oneworld lounge LAX in the Tom Bradley Terminal (colloquially known as TBIT) acts as the Business Class lounge for all these airlines and is the lounge I visited when flying with British Airways last month.
Qantas is expected to open its new international lounge at Perth Terminal 3 on 24 March just in time for the start of the new non-stop Perth - London route which will be operated by the airline's Dreamliners. While the plans for the lounge look very nice indeed it looks as if there will be a lot of disappointed Qantas flyers come opening day.
Qantas offers some of the best First Class lounges in the world and as a fan of the airline's First Class lounge in Los Angeles and even the recently opened Business Class lounge in London, I was genuinely excited to revisit the Sydney Qantas First Class lounge to remind myself of what it's like.
After flying in to Paris from Doha on Qatar Airways I had a few hours to kill before my connecting flight on to London. I had done my research before getting to Paris so I knew that the Cathay Pacific First & Business Class lounge would be the best place to spend some time. The Cathay Pacific lounge is in Terminal 2 at Paris Charles De Gaulle airport and, more specifically, it’s airside in the connector building between Terminals 2A & 2C and one level up from the gates.
I've visited the Iberia Velázquez Premium Lounge in the satellite portion of Madrid's Terminal 4 quite a few times and, although it can get quite crowded at times and finding a seat can get tough, I've never considered it to be in desperate need of a make over...there have always been far worse lounges out there. Still, clearly Iberia thought differently as it has given its T4 satellite lounge a make over and the new lounge is now open for guests. If you're a oneworld flyer this could be an important lounge for you as this is the lounge you'll almost certainly be using if you're flying long-haul out of Madrid on a oneworld airline.
Malaysia Airlines has three lounges in Kuala Lumpur International Airport – one in the regional terminal (main terminal) and two in the satellite terminal from where the major international flights depart. The two lounges in the satellite terminal (the Business Class lounge and First Class lounge) are currently closed for renovations with a scheduled re-opening date of 22 January 2018. With that in mind, and because Kuala Lumpur is such a major transit point for travelers, I’m taking a look at 3 options oneworld flyers have when passing through
It's here! The Qantas London Lounge at Heathrow Terminal 3 opened its doors to the media today and will open to guests from tomorrow (29 November 2017). I was lucky enough to get an invitation to official opening hosted by Alan Joyce (Qantas Group CEO) and got a chance to see inside the lounge and to take some pictures of the new facility.
I recently spent quite a few hours in Kuala Lumpur International airport and, as the Malaysia Airlines lounges in the satellite terminal are both currently closed for refurbishment, I took a look around to see what other options are currently available. I’ve already posted details of the Malaysia Airlines C.I.P Lounge in the satellite terminal, which is where some Malaysia Airlines passengers are being sent but, as that facility is (a) temporary, (b) small and (c) not exactly impressive, you may want to know what the Cathay Pacific Lounge is like.

Getting to the Qantas lounges at Auckland International Airport first means navigating your way through the maze of duty free shops you’ll find after you clear airport security. Once though the duty free zone look for a sign pointing to the right that looks like the one below and follow the direction of the arrow.
