My QF Club membership expires at the end of the year, I dont travel as much as I used to, so the recent changes to QF points/status had me thinking. Is VA better, then wondered, is ANZ Koru Club membership the way to go? Since I have credit cards in Oz that gain VA points, can I join Koru Club, use that card to gain access to VA Lounge in Oz (Koru Lounges o/seas), but have my VA Velocity FF card details on the booking?

What are peoples thoughts on ANZ Koru Club overall?

If you are mainly flying domestically with VA then it is cheeper to go and get a Virgin Lounge Membership this will get you access to all VA Lounges and all NZ Lounges in Australia and New Zealand

If you are flying NZ to other NZ destinations like USA, UK, China then go and get a Koru Club

 

My Thoughts on the Koru Club and International Business Lounges

The Koru clubs Domestically in New Zealand are good and in AKL and CHC are quite well looked after

The Air New Zealand International Lounge in CHC is quite and to me looks new and nice

The International Lounge's in BNE and SYD (Not sure about Melbourne) are tired and in need of a makeover which for the sydney lounge is in progress

The AKL International Lounge is a mess and looks as if someone has been living in it but it is also in the process of being upgraded

The "Koru Club" which you can buy online gives you access to the Virgin Australia Lounges in Australia, All Air New Zealand operated lounges, The Qantas Club in PER and ADL when flying NZ and a few other partner lounges scatered around the place

I don't have access to the VA lounges in Australia cuase I am not *G with NZ

Thanks, I think I'll join Koru - my partner has QF Club for the next two years, so we can use that on JQ/QF flights.
