    I’m flying out to Sydney in a week on a AirNZ purchased ticket (Business Class) which is on a Virgin flight to avoid being on the HiFly Planes. On the way back it’s an AirNZ flight so I can use the AirNZ lounge in Sydney, but ex-Auckland, who’s lounge would I use?

    I see Virgin uses Strata lounge in Auckland which is a bit average, however as it’s AirNZ ticketed, can I use their lounge? Or would this not be an option as I’m not actually flying on their planes?

    You can most certainly use the NZ lounge when flying trans-tasman out of Auckland on Air NZ or Virgin Australia regardless of which airline ticketed or is operating the flight (under the NZ/VA alliance).

    I think VA only use the Strata lounge for flights beyond Australia, where their agreement with NZ doesn’t permit lounge access – but that would only be if you were on a VA ticket (regardless of which airline operated the flight).

    You’re on an NZ ticket, so can absolutely use the NZ lounge.
