Any mention of the Shave & Style has disappeared from the Lounge page on their website so not just shaves and haircuts but nails and hair for the ladies too!! Shocking! That used to be a treat to myself, now I'll have to hope the6 Senses Spa is still there in 2 weeks....

The only plus to the FC lounge is the peace and quiet - which should be deafening as no one will be there - they'll be in the Premium Lounge getting fed!!

No upbeat email either about choice, flexibility and improvements we asked for?

I guess I'm confused. What is the difference between the 6 senses spa and the haircut/shave spa? I thought they were the same thing.

The haircut and shave spa was exactly that. You could have your shirt pressed and shoes shined whilst having a shower (dont know if theyve gone too), then have a haircut, shave etc. The ladies could also have manicures etc... they even allowed you to pay with points, which maybe was the writing on the wall?

The 6 senses spa it/was a conventional type massage facility. I dont know how much longer that will be around, for J at least, or the fitness area for that matter in F?

Fitness area is a sunk cost and what would they fill the space with?

Was going to say the same - getting rid of the fitness area wouldn't save money.

Flog the equipment and close it so you dont need to pay anyone to clean it? Becomes a storage area for cases and cases of Lidl champagne?

I for one used the gym on connections between SYD and CAI (Up to 5 hours) as cardio helps overcome jet lag, plus the shower in the gym is never used by anyone else.

And I always used the shave facility on my return home, even paying for it recently. What a terrible reduction in service.

How disappointing. Was hoping to use it today for the first time.

On an unrelated note, am I correct in thinking that the food selection is action better in the Premium lounge than in the First Class lounge?

OMG the horror!!! I can't get a free shave on Etihad and I'm going to BA!!!!

Really???

Enjoy BA. They'll shave you in ways you can't even imagine.

In places where you never knew you had hair.

I really cannot believe some of the first world whiners on here.

I think the main complaint is that Etihad are continually making more and more cuts; not that Etihad is worse than BA (it isn't) - more of the fear of where it is going to end up.

Your "first world whiners" jibe is getting old, it's about all you've contributed on Flyer Talk in your 24 posts

Please try to understand what is being discussed before coming in with your pompous comments

And about all you've contributed in 725 posts is whining......someone threatening to go to a notoriously poor airline like BA because they can't get a free shave is beyond ridiculous. If you want to support that kind of idiocy go for it. I won't.

Equally it isn't 'first world whining' in the same way much of the very many other examples of your calling as such aren't either.
Also whilst I complain on that which I do, I equally proffer compliment in similar measure as well as give help and suggestion to many other users and the Santa group. So to suggest mine are mostly negative is to have not looked at them but solely at the number by my name

You don't work for Fox News do you ?

I'm gutted that it has gone, the manicurists (paid service) were really very good and always a good chat. Plus I thoroughly recommend tipping the bar staff if you fly often. They come find me with fresh drinks and top ups wherever I am in the lounge (no not the toilet for those hurrying to type that) as very very few people ever tip and on sight my old fashioned is being prepared on arrival.
