Wondering if anyone has any ideas of which lounges I can access in Abu Dhabi.. Will be flying in on EY metal with AF codeshare I think the flight arrives around 2300. Can I use the EY arrivals lounge? My connecting flight is with KLM. Does anyone know which lounge they use?

It is impossible to give you an answer without this info: do you have elite status or paid lounge membership with an airline and, if so, which one? What is your class of travel?
Sorry business on all legs..
My understanding is that EY won't let you use their arrivals lounge unless your flight is both marketed and operated on their metal; as you indicated it is an AF codeshare, I think that would rule that option out (other readers may have a different interpretation or experience with this). You can always smile & give it a try though, as the EY lounges are indeed rather lovely!
More likely though, you would need to stick with the local KLM lounge allowable for you as you are travelling in a premium cabin; in your case J transiting AUH, this should be the Al Dhabi Lounge, used by both AF & KL as fellow Skyteam partners.
Ok thanks Nathan luke! Any personal experience with that lounge?
Unfortunately no; although I have status with Skyteam with Alitalia I've never transited AUH, only DOH. Sorry!
