Qantas Sydney First Lounge
5:00am to last Qantas flight daily
One World Airlines
First class on an Oneworld Airline.
Emerald status in Oneworld.
One guest of the above.
Having stumbled across this lounge as an international noob in 2012, with really no idea what was being offered, it has stuck in my mind for over a decade. I took exactly 3 pictures my first time here, well, now that I have come back and I am a regular international traveler with 40,000 plus photos, it was time to do this right.
My most favorite lounge in the entire world, so let me bring you through it.
At 6 am, even I couldn't start drinking. This bar though, really begs me to.
A spa? Yes, massages are available (but the early morning slots are usually booked the day before by Qantas for their special guests, afternoon is better).
Ahhh, the dining. My first time here was quite a shock and surprise. Sit down isolated menu service. Outstanding food all day long and, yes I stole the menu.
I don't know why I keep having eggs benedict, as, I have been told I make the dish better than anywhere in the world by multiple people, but shrug, I'm lazy when traveling (That's a lie, I spend a stupid amount of time now just getting shots and documenting all this stuff I used to just enjoy).
Rob's feeling for the best lounge in the world (correct, THE, not one of...). The service is beyond anything one could expect in a 5-star hotel, let alone an airline lounge. Well, basically every flight from here is endless hours of length so one should be rested and pampered before attempting it. I could live here.
