    Koru Lounge MEL

    Hi all, does anyone know what time this closes? I have an Etihad flight to AUH leaving at 11.15pm and was wondering if the lounge would still be open? It's been a bugger trying to find out, surprisingly enough.

    Sydney hours are clearly detailed, but not Melbourne!

    Yep, it's confusing isn't it? The last Air NZ flight leaves at 7.30pm. I am hoping it stays open for its codeshare partners as well. I have tweeted them asking about it. If I find out before anyone on here knows, I will post it.

    Koru Lounge stays open for all of the 473 airlines that use is. I suspect it would open at 4 or 5am for the first NZ trans-pac flights and would stay open all day until the last *A flight which I believe is the midnight TG departure? Does it stay open for the 1am SQ flight too?

    I've caught the 11pm EY flight ex-MEL on several occasions and the NZ lounge has always been open.

    It does, I'm just wondering if the NZ lounge also stays open as a courtesy. I'm pretty sure the only *A departure after midnight is the 1am SQ but they may close the NZ Lounge at 11:30pm when TG is called.

    EY list it as their contract lounge in MEL, so I would assume that it is open.

    Yes of course it stays open for the AUH flight, as noted above its EY's contract lounge list T. Not much outside to be seen down as lounge is inside/at ground level; but the pool table is OK..
