Will Etihad Gold grants me access for Virgin international flights to NZ? The flight will be on VA code and VA metal.

Thanks, but looks like there is no Virgin lounge for international departure. So which lounge will I be eligible?
You will be accessing the Air New Zealand lounges at all ports departing to and from New Zealand with exception to the Gold Coast where a Virgin Australia lounge is provided. Just present your card at the lounge desk.
Thanks mate, time to check out the Koru lounge I guess.

I believe they use the Air New Zealand Lounge at MEL.

You cannot access anz lounge if flying va if you have etihad status only. I tried in mel and was told no. This is also stipulated on etihad website. Sorry!
Well, that's exactly the thing I worried about. Would you be able to point me out where in the etihad website is it stipulated?
BTW, do you get any extra baggage allowance?
