AUH new mid-field terminal

Can't seem to locate any threads on this subject, so starting this one. (If I missed one on my search, Mod please merge this one with it.)

Any news on the opening? Last I could find is 4th Q of this year...after many previous opening dates. (Only Berlin seems to be less certain...IST2 was slightly delayed and so far both PEK2 and PEK3 have met their opening dates, or in the case of PEK3 will soon do so.)

I've just booked EY for mid-February so unsure which terminal will be in use...and curious about facilities in the new EY lounges, particularly the First one as I've got an Apartment flight departing.

Any ideas on Lounges - Midfield Terminal AUH Abu Dhabi

Hi, maybe a question too early to ask as the Midfield Terminal is due to open at the end of this year, hopefully soon and when?

I note through searching testing of the terminal funtions commenced in June.

Has anyone discovered the answer to the question above, and secondly does anyone have any info what business class / premium lounges will be located in the new terminal, obviously Eitiad is a given but any info on the other potential lounges, and when might they open.

I'm an Airfrance KLM business flyer normally.

Sorry if there is too many questions, but I'm guessing I'm not alone in wondering.

I imagine most people are simply wondering when the new terminal will really be open for business based on their experiences with Etihad and the airport after all just because the terminal is "open" that might not mean the lounges are "open"

After flying emirates through terminal 3 after a long time, I was thinking about how much Etihad needs the new midfield terminal i it wants to be even in the competition but here we are...

I don't think it's insanity. There is simply no demand for it. And in ME it's all about saving face, so they will never admit it. They are probably looking for another spin to delay it further.

It's not an issue of wanting to postpone the opening - it's simply not finished yet.
