For some time now there has been a lot of confusion regarding entry to the Etihad First class lounge as a Velocity Platinum member. Many got in many didn’t but now members can definitely get access. Previously only member’s of the ‘Club’ could enter.
I wrote about the problem here: Issue’s Accessing the Etihad First Class Lounge For Velocity Platinum Members.
A review of the lounge can be found here: Etihad First Class Lounge
This will be a big relief and will also make them very happy. A lot of travellers tired to enter when the lounge opened but got denied so it’s nice to see that they have updated the entry policy.
