Narita Airport Lounge Review: Qantas Business

Coming home from my weekend in Bangkok, I’d originally just planned to hang out again in the JAL Sakura First Class Lounge during my hour and a half layover in Narita. But when I exited transit security in Terminal 2 and saw the Qantas Business Class Lounge just a few yards away, I decided to check it out.

How’d I get into the Qantas Business Lounge?

I was eligible for Qantas lounge access two ways:

  • As a oneworld Emerald (Sapphires too)
  • As a business class passenger departing on an international oneworld flight

At 4:30PM on a Monday I pretty much had the lounge to myself and it was so spacious that the few of us in there had entire sections to ourselves. I dug the walls of windows looking out on the tarmac.

The food and beverage sections were scattered throughout the lounge. When you first walk in there’s a long counter on the left with very light snacks as well as coffee, soda, and sake.

If you were looking for the wine (which I’m always curious about) or liquor selection, you’d want to walk through snack section and head towards the end of the lounge til you see it on the left. Decent options but nothing exciting.

The bathroom was pretty utilitarian.

The quiet was nice, but after about 15 minutes I decided to head upstairs to the 3rd floor and spend the rest of the time in the JAL First Class Lounge which, as one would hope of a first class lounge, had much better food and wine options.
