If you travel frequently with Qantas Airlines, the Qantas Club may be a pleasant way to enhance what is likely a series of long international flights. As a member, you are granted access to the variety of domestic lounges run by the airline and a series of international lounges run by American Airlines and Emirates. You also receive several special privileges with booking and in the airport, including priority check-in and waitlist, extra baggage, and upgrade access. While an annual guest card is available for purchase, club members will likely be satisfied with their ability to invite one guest into the lounge free of charge in applicable lounges. The guest card enables you to invite a second guest.
