Does anyone know what will happen with lounge access to and from New Zealand when Virgin and Air NZ split this month?

In Auckland, Virgin will continue to use the Strata lounge. For Aussie cities, likely will consider etihad or contract lounges such as Plaza Premium or Marhaba. Not sure of other cities.

Probably same as their other international fights? I've had Etihad in Melbourne and Singapore in Sydney before.

Latest update I got from a journalist (who was present at a recent VA's announcement) was "they’re still finalising an agreement and will announce soon".
