Qantas Business Lounge Auckland
After my 24 hours in Auckland, I arrived at AKL with plenty of time to spare. There are a few lounges at the Auckland International Terminal located past security (map). Lounges include Emirates, Air New Zealand, Qantas and the Emperor Lounge (the one lounge accessible with Priority Pass). As a oneworld Sapphire elite I had the option to visit the Qantas Business Lounge Auckland since I was flying home on American.
The Qantas Business Lounge Auckland is located on the second floor; up an escalator and next to the Emirates lounge. As you enter to the left of the check in desk is a door to the Qantas First Lounge. The Business Lounge is to the right.
When I arrived around 10:30am the Qantas Business Lounge Auckland was nearly empty. However, it filled up quickly and by the time I left nearly all seats were taken.
The views were of a roof top. No plane spotting from this lounge.
The food options were decent. There was one hot option in addition to a soup. Lots of cold finger foods.
The had a freezer full of ice cream, however the flavor options were rather odd. One was nectarine and I think the other was honeysuckle or something.
The bar and coffee was self service. I enjoyed a pear cider but there were various beers, wines and liquor.
In addition to the food there were a couple of TVs and racks of magazines.
There were outlets throughout but they all were New Zealand style plugs; no USB. There was one “charging station” for cell phones but that was it. I noticed a couple of the charging cords were broken. Make sure to bring an adapter.
There were also a couple of showers but no staff so I didn’t get a chance to look at them
A pretty standard lounge that I wouldn’t go out of my way to visit. The food was okay but the lounge was small for the number of guests. The decor also felt outdated and worn. If you want a drink and some snacks before your flight and have access, the Qantas Business Lounge Auckland will suffice.
