CONCLUSION

Two weeks ago, I was connecting at London Heathrow Terminal 4 for my Etihad flight to Abu Dhabi. I knew that my Etihad boarding pass would not grant me access to the Malaysia Airlines lounge although I was not 100 % sure if Etihad had a partnership with Malaysia Airlines (in one way or another) so I took my chances and approached the reception area. I was greeted by a young lady receptionist from the Philippines, and after confirming that I had no access to their lounge, I sheepishly asked if I could possibly take some photos for my blog. Without any hesitation, I was allowed to do so and within a few minutes, I had photos of the lounge which were enough for a photo review. This lounge looked very nice and the food looked very tempting so I really wish I could visit this lounge again and hopefully by that time, as a "legal guest" so I could make a full review of this lounge. Shout out to Kristine (the lounge receptionist) for making this photo review possible 😍
