KrisFlyer and The House

I can't seem to find any information on this - do KrisFlyer Gold members, who "have access to the Virgin Australia Lounge before a Virgin Australia Flight," also have access to "The House" in Sydney and Melbourne before boarding HKG/LAX/AKL etc?

My understanding is that while The House is moving the Etihad lounges marginally closer to the Virgin brand, they aren't going to be classed as Virgin-owned lounges. Virgin Australia doesn't provide contract lounge access to partner elites--I suspect you'd be out of luck.

Virgin has not done a good job in communicating The House access rules but my understanding from the articles here is that your Krisflyer Gold status doesn't cover access to The House. The Virgin rules you quote are related to Virgin's domestic lounges, and The House is not a Virgin lounge as such because it's still a contract lounge run by a third-party company. Sorry!!

Will be interesting to see if access to Partner Elites is afforded to the new Wellington Pop up lounge that they're opening next year.
