ANZ Black Visa is no longer accepted at Auckland Emperor Lounge?

I’ve been using the lounge every time i’ve been back to Auckland but was told yesterday that the ANZ Black Card is no longer accepted! How disappointing ANZ!

Hi Mikey,

Have a look and see whether you are still allowed access here

I no longer have a ANZ Black on hand so I couldn’t check.

Sometimes it is possible that the lounge agent (dragon) is not up to speed with lounge access benefits too.

I wonder whether this has anything to do with the ANZ Amex card no longer usable.
