None, but we are waiting to hear back from Etihad this week for an update.

Last information I heard from Virgin approximately a month ago was that Etihad is maintaining that the Etihad Sydney International Lounge will open Q4 of this year.

Thanks for your replies - and please keep us updated if you hear anything :)

Also, I wonder if it will be TZG Architects who design the fitout, like the domestic lounges.

Yep, a few months back we were also told by the highest of VA sources (!) that it would be end of year, but given there seems to have been no movement and it's now nearing end of July, you have to wonder when the work is actually going to commence in order to hit a Dec opening...

Have they even found a space to build in yet? I'd be extremely impressed if they opened this year given how long the domestic lounge in Terminal 2 took.

Does anyone know when Melbourne joint lounge will open?

Does anyone else find it amazing that SkyTeam can find a space in Sydney International for a lounge in significantly less time than Virgin/Etihad?? Am I missing something?

Interesting yes. Title 'taking shape' leads one to beleive that construction is well underway?
