VFF, I was wondering why the access to the soon to be opened Etihad lounge in Sydney will be restricted to only passengers flying to AUH? From all the press releases over the last year or two they indicated the lounge was going to be a shared lounge with access for all Etihad and Virgin Business and First passengers and gold and platinum FF. Why can't passengers to the US have access rather than putting up with the average Koru Club? It mightn't be so bad if the Koru Club was renovated but when I was there last August it look very run down - computers not working massage chairs not working and the whole place just looking tired. If Virgin refuses to join an alliance, then they at least need to extract better benefits out of their partners and have consistency with those benefits with all partners.
