Travelling from Perth to Houston via Melbourne and Los Angeles in a month.
PER-MEL Qantas Airways Business Class
MEL-LAX Qantas Airways Economy with Business upgrade requested (QFF Points) for 2 pax
LAX-IAH American Airlines Economy
IAH-LAX United Airlines
then back to Perth via MEL with same class details.
If an upgrade from Economy to Business is not available from MEL-LAX-MEL, what options are there for lounge access in LAX, particularly with a 7 hour stopover on the way to Houston?
We have four complimentary QANTAS Club Invitations (four of us on the MEL-LAX leg) but believe they can’t be used in the TBIT International Business Lounge.
Google search found the following for your perusal.
***I am assuming you don’t have any existing premium FF status or CC status that allows you lounge access.
Or you can pick up a Priority Pass if you are planning to use a PP lounge for more than 1 or 2 times in 12 mths.
Another interesting option is to book an airport hotel room to rest and freshen up in since it might be cheaper than 4 x lounge access.
