I am AAdvantage Exec Platinum with American Airlines. I've booked a Qantas codeshare flight, operated by Emirates. Which lounge(s) can I use at Heathrow (Terminal 3)? I assume I can use any Oneworld lounge, including the Qantas one. Can I also use the Emirates lounge? Which lounge can I use on a return journey from Dubai?

Although in the end I didn't actually try, it seems the answer is no:

To be eligible, you must be departing on a flight that is both marketed and operated by a oneworld member airline.

It also appears that my OneWorld status didn't allow First class check-in or early boarding either.

    Don't believe what oneworld.com says, they might try to set the rules but the airlines don't always follow them. Qantas and Emirates is a special case. I suspect you'd have got access to the QF lounge (on the QF codeshare) but not the EK lounge. I agree, no priority boarding on the EK metal.
