    Question Velocity redemptions on Etihad - how far toward the US West Coast can you get?

    Hi all,

    It's fairly trivial to get from most cities in Australia to JFK on EY using Velocity points, however going further seems to be difficult.

    Ideally I'd like to get to LAX or SFO, but it seems that this is either impossible on a single award fare or the Virgin search facility is a bit NQR - can anyone confirm which?

    Thanks to all who reply!
