SYDNEY SKYTEAM LOUNGE- SOFT OPENING?

Hi All,

I am flying DL on Wednesday in J and heard that the Skyteam lounge in Sydney has all ready opened. I know the last article on here stated that it has been pushed back until October??? Can anyone please let me know what the case is? Would love to try it out before the long trek to LAX

Since you're in J, wouldn't you already get access to the Air NZ lounge prior to departure?

Or were you specifically wanting to find out what's the go with the Skyteam lounge in SYD?

I know I have access to the NZ lounge but was hoping to use the Skyteam lounge in Sydney if it was open ?

The Skyteam lounge at Sydney is not yet open, not even in soft form - Skyteam tells us "The lounge is still under construction. We don't have an official (soft) opening date yet but as soon as we do we will let you know."

Just a thought; with the advent of social media it's even more critical for an airline's (or any organisation for that matter) right hand to talk to it's left hand. I'm not quite sure it's acceptable for news to come out for a new service or product and a very long lead time before said service or product is out in the market. I know it's academic, but marketing and operations really do need to be singing from the same hymn sheet.

Thanks for the check David.

Must say I was very dubious that the OP had "heard" it was opened, without mentioning where they had heard it, or checking with that source.

It was mentioned in general conversation with a colegue who almost exclusivly flys with Skyteam member airlines and he advised me. I was just asking as I always check any airline / lounge / ff programe information at the relevant sources. 
Thank you David for the update. As always much appricated :-)
Looks like I will be in the NZ lounge yet again.
