Qantas Frequent Flyer elite-level members have seen some changes recently and the news has not been good. The airport lounge Anytime Access benefit for Platinum members has been discontinued. Now, Platinum members must be ticketed for travel with Qantas or a oneworld partner airline (as well as Jetstar, Jetstar Asia and Valuair) to have access to an airport lounge. Gone are the days of enjoying the lounge whenever you pleased, although the change brings Qantas in line with most other international airlines. Another change is that Qantas Silver members with luggage to check will no longer have a priority line to check in as part of the Next Generation Check-in program.
