With your codeshare flight under the Emirates EK code, you can also relax on economy flights in the Emirates Lounge experience at select airports around the world. Please note that Qantas Club members have access to the largest network of Australian and international lounges of any Australian airline. Please visit the Qantas Club lounge site to learn about Qantas and associated lounge network locations and access. Mehdorn`s statements point out that global alliances are becoming simpler, but more important, to appease passengers with a network of frequent flyers and harmonize recognitions. Even within alliances, member airlines compete when there is no revenue participation. The greatest value of alliances for airlines comes from codeshares and joint ventures, and airlines, whether airberlin or Qantas, must have a platform for passenger loyalty, but not be committed to preventing smarter partnerships, as with Etihad or Emirates. It seems to me that reviving all these codeshares would cost more in labour and costs than it would be worth leaving behind. If you are a member of Qantas Frequent Flyer or Emirates Skywards loyalty programs, this alliance also allows you to earn and spend points on flights made by both airlines via codeshare bookings. Depending on your membership status and fare class, you will also have access to Dener lounges run by Qantas and Emirates.
The size of Emirates has given it the opportunity to follow its growth trajectory alone. A bad experience of participating in SriLankan Airlines has grown to disengage, although it has partnerships, including with JAL, Philippine Airlines and South African Airways, and an extensive codeshare relationship with JetBlue. Emirates codehared with BA and Qantas in the 1990s. Emirates, on the other hand, has added additional direct flights from Dubai to Sydney and Auckland. The airlines also announced plans for more trans-Tasman codeshare flights as well as updated flight plans. The potential of Qantas is great. In 2010, Emirates announced that more than 85% of passengers on their flights from Australia to Europe were deporting to locations other than London Heathrow and Frankfurt, the two ports served by Qantas.
