Qantas to Enforce Dress Code in Lounges


Qantas will begin enforcing a “smart casual” dress code in its
lounges in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Canberra, Perth, and Adelaide
airports this April according to Yahoo! Travel.
The restrictions actually aren’t new, though they were never previously
enforced. Sandals, singlets (I had to google this one), clothing with
offensive images/slogans, and shorts will be prohibited.

“Entry may be refused at the discretion of the lounge
staff if visitors do not meet the appropriate standard,” the airline
said. “We want to create a comfortable atmosphere in our lounges that
all visitors can enjoy.” “The dress guidelines for our lounges are the
same as most restaurants or clubs,” said Qantas head of domestic product
and service Helen Gray. “The vast majority of our members meet and
exceed the guidelines, but we have had some feedback from customers that
they want to see those guidelines apply to everyone.”

Sandals and shorts may still be allowed if you are otherwise appropriate…

The stricter standards will be applied on a case-by-case
basis on a customer’s overall standard of dress rather than by
individual items. That means a man wearing tailored shorts and a polo
shirt with sandals or a woman wearing a singlet will probably be allowed
