Qantas Airlines First Class Lounge Auckland
4:00am to 07:00pm
First class ticket on an OneWorld airline.
Emerald Status on OneWorld.
This is another lounge I have been in before but took exactly one picture (which I will have in this post!) Now I have taken many more. A nice lounge, quiet, very exclusive, but it does not have the normal Qantas first-class amenities like the open bar, open kitchen or sit down dining. I think it's here because Australia considers New Zealand a suburb, but a busy one.
The general seating area is the primary area in the lounge. Spacing is a little tight, but since it didn't have more than 11 people in here before a flight, I guess it's not even a concern.
Instead of full service dining, this lounge has a buffet.
While I didn't use them, I was the only one in the lounge when I arrived, so I snuck in for some pics. Large size and those fancy amenities I've come to expect in Qantas lounges.
11 years after the first visit, I was able to come back. It's larger than before, and I had more than 30 minutes to spend. Being so separate from the rest of the lounge and double separated from the terminal, you forget that you're inside an airport.
