    Virgin Flyer or High Flyer Credit Card - 2 for 1 fare booking class?

    Anyone who has one of these cards and has used the 2 for 1 bookings that come with it (4 times a year). Do you know the booking class / restrictions on the second seat?

    For example, can you book any seat that has availability and get the second seat in the same class or is the deal limited to specific seat classes, like O class or D class, etc, etc.

    Before going for one of these cards I want to have a look at fare bucket availability to try and judge if its all hype or a real and usable benefit.

    Re: Virgin Flyer or High Flyer Credit Card - 2 for 1 fare booking class?

    I have a high flyer CC and used it to book 2 J seats SYD-PER. As I only paid for 1 the saving on this alone pays the annual fee for a few years.

    I'm not sure what other booking classes are available

    I'm not sure what bucket it books into but I used it to book 2 flexi fares to OOL. No dramas at all. Could have booked savers too.

    Btw it's 4 flights, ie 2 return trips per year.

    Re: Virgin Flyer or High Flyer Credit Card - 2 for 1 fare booking class?

    +1 I have used all of my 2 for 1 also without any dramas. Checked availability of 2 seats on the VA website and rang up to book. I was asked each time which fare I wanted to book as all fare types were available to the flights I was booking. I think the only restriction is that there has to be availablity of 2 identical fare types (saver, flexi, business)

    Have used three segments so far. Fantastic product. Used during peak times SYD-MEL so saved a few hundred.

    Re: Virgin Flyer or High Flyer Credit Card - 2 for 1 fare booking class?

    Thanks for the replies folks. Can anyone remember the booking classes that were used? Posts above sound like any available seat can be booked in this way, but I wonder ... I'd love someone to have their boarding pass close by for a quick look - both Economy and Business classes would be interesting.

    My thoughts are that this would book into a restricted class, but that there is probably good availability which is why we're not noticing any troubles.

    Re: Virgin Flyer or High Flyer Credit Card - 2 for 1 fare booking class?

    Im pretty sure Savers from last weekend were 2-4-1 and my boarding pass says 'R' class.

    It used to be that only the very cheapest Saver fares were available (i dont know the class but we're talking serious sale fares) so it used to be impossible to redeem at peak times (week of christmas there would be none available for several days in a row). I understand now they have significantly relaxed this meaning you can get any fare 2-4-1.

    So can you get J 2-4-1? Where you are booking at a late date and only flex are available I guess it would be a pretty good deal?

    Mine didn't have a fare code on the e-ticket, just Flexi. as I've upgraded to J now I can't help you there!

    Thanks for that. I could understand it being R being as R has been linked elsewhere with the Amex "free" annual flight booking class. Essentially a Flexi but restricted numbers. Did you get any FF or SC earn from the R class ticket?

    Perhaps I'm wrong to be trying to chase only one class for the 2:1 then ... it may book into several. Getting folks boarding pass records will help here.

    I don't know this to be the case but the wording doesn't seem to discriminate. 2:1 on "domestic" fares is what it says, the fine print says saver, flexi and "Premium" fares. I'm reading Premium as Business.
