Area above AKL INT Koru

Flew out of AKL today and noticed a fancy room above the Koru Club. I think it's the old observation room that closed 10+ years ago? Just wondering if anyone knew what it's used for now, airport executive offices?


Also the domestic Koru Club is completely stripped, I think it'll be awhile before they open it again.

I think it used to be. It's definitely now part of the Koru Lounge

There is one on the EP1 thread. Unfortunately they are very hard to come by considering how few EP1 members there are.

That part of the lounge is the observation deck for EP1. Quite a few seats overlooking the airport. The main part of the lounge (restaurant/seating etc) is on the same level as the main Koru lounge.
