Hi there, looking to fly to Edinburgh from Brisbane (economy) with Emirates with 3 other adult family members in August. I have Qantas Gold frequent flyer status, most of our family members are very tall and require extra legroom. My question is, am I able to get extra legroom privileges (free or reduced rate) for all parties on the one booking if I book the flights, or does it only apply to me? It’s currently looking like $700 extra per person (they charge per flight leg) return and that seems ridiculous to me. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
As a Qantas Gold Frequent Flyer, when you travel with Emirates between and within Europe, the Middle East, North Africa, Asia and Australia. Ensure your Qantas Gold Frequent Flyer membership number is in your booking to receive:
You can check in at Emirates Business Class Check-in, regardless of your class of travel. Show your Gold Qantas card at check-in. Ensure your Gold Qantas Frequent Flyer membership number is in your booking to receive:
Enjoy access to the Priority Boarding lane (where available).
Priority Waitlist/Airport Standby
On fares that allow you to waitlist or standby at the airport, you’ll receive priority over Silver and Bronze Qantas Frequent Flyers whenever you’re waitlisted to travel on Emirates.
Additional Checked Baggage Allowance
You’ll receive priority baggage plus an additional 16kg of checked allowance. View checked baggage allowance.
Enjoy access for you and one guest to Emirates Lounges throughout Australia, Europe, Asia, North Africa and the Middle East, whenever you fly with Qantas or Emirates. In Dubai, you and a guest may enjoy the luxurious Emirates Business Lounge and in other airports, the Emirates Lounges.
When departing London Heathrow on a Qantas operated aircraft (when travelling on a QF or EK flight number), Gold members can access the British Airways Lounge. When departing London Heathrow on an Emirates operated aircraft (when travelling on a QF or EK flight number) Gold members can access the Emirates Lounge. Children (aged between 0 and 17 years) who hold Gold or Platinum Frequent Flyer status or are travelling in Business or First and accompanied by an adult can access Emirates Lounges.
This is what it says on the Qantas website. I don’t think extra legroom seats are included though. I believe they sell upgrades to business class at check-in as well so that might be an option if you don’t want to fork out for extra legroom seats.
