Opting for American Airlines over British Airways when flying from London-Heathrow (LHR) to the United States has a key advantage: At their Terminal 3, you have a much wider choice of lounges to pick and are not limited to the British Airways option. My oneworld Emerald status, for example, already took me to the lovely Cathay Pacific First Class Lounge there. On Easter Saturday 2024, I made use of a flight to New York (JFK) and went for the Australians. Here is my review of the Qantas International Lounge London-Heathrow Terminal 3.


Qantas International Lounge Heathrow – Location & Access

Close to Gate 11 and thus just at the end of the corridor from the main waiting area, the lounge is ideally located. The Quantas International Lounge in Heathrow is also named as Lounge B. You may need a bit to orientate in the airside area of Terminal 3 in general. However, the directions are given throughout the terminal.

The main cause for the lounge is of course serving Qantas frequent flyers and premium cabin travelers. The lounge is also used for a few other airlines. On top of that, the lounge classified as a business lounge is also open to oneworld Sapphire and Emerald members. You only need a oneworld ticket for the day for that reason. As far as I could see, lounge passes are not accepted.


Qantas International Lounge Heathrow – Atmosphere

The Quantas International Lounge at London-Heathrow is having two levels. Apart from the reception, there is the gin bar as well as a la carte dining on the lower level. This restaurant part looked lovely, but opened at 9:30 on my day of visit, more or less right when I had to head to the gate to my flight to JFK. I definitely have to try it on one of my future trips from Terminal 3.

When you head up the staircase, you run right into another bar (I missed to have a snap of it), which is an absolutely gorgeous eye-catcher. When I arrived a the lounge, there were just a few guests waiting for their flights, so that I had plenty of opportunity to take some snaps of the lounge. You have a nice variety of seating options. In the bar area of the upper level, there are more comfortable and relaxing options, while the rear of the lounge also has bistro style seating, next to the buffet, and a working zone. The upper level also runs the sanitary services (see below).


Qantas International Lounge Heathrow – Food & Drink

As said, I visited the lounge during breakfast times. The breakfast buffet might not look huge, but they had a nice selection of items. On top of that, the quality of the dishes provided was absolutely stunning, so that I really loved having some food there. They had a nice range of pastries, bread and cakes as well as warm dishes. Of course, there was also juice and similar items. The presentation was really nice. As I stated above, there is a bar on the top level (which was also very very busy in handing out the bubbly drinks) and the restaurant and bar on the lower floor level.


Qantas International Lounge Heathrow – Services

The lounge drives its own WiFi connection, which worked really fast and reliable. On the top level, there are the bathrooms of Qantas International Lounge. In this area, you also find showers if you feel like refreshing yourself. One of the meeting rooms had been turned into a children and family room. The staff was absolutely lovely.


Qantas International Lounge Heathrow – My View

Quantas International Lounge at London Heathrow (LHR) Terminal 3 is an absolute beauty. As you see in the pictures, it feels very luxurious and rather reminds of some first class lounge places. Bad luck that I could not make it to check out there ready to order food as well. I really loved my time at the lounge
