Given Qantas' long-haul travel pedigree, it may come as a surprise that the airline has just opened its first lounge at London Heathrow.
The new lounge opened ahead of Qantas' non-stop Perth to London Dreamliner service, which takes off in March.
Located in Terminal Three, the two-storey lounge has seating for 230 passengers with views of the airfield, a buffet and an a la carte menu, six shower suites, barista-made coffee and a fully stocked bar including a specialty gin bar.
With a host of comfortable seating areas, the lounge is fully wi-fi connected and is open to Qantas passengers travelling in first and nusiness and Qantas Platinum One, Platinum and Gold Qantas Frequent Flyers and their guests.
Also eligible are oneworld Emerald and Sapphire customers, Emirates Skywards Platinum and Gold customers and Qantas Club members and their guests.
