    Virgin Happy Hour [Thursdays]

    You'd probably have to hope for a generous call centre agent who won't charge you a fee to move the flights to a later date.

    I use Edge and it's working just fine.

    Virgin Australia to be sold to Bain Capital

    Virgin Australia also have a Happy Hour sale on at the moment. Some good fares from now until August 31. Good to see them starting to get back into sales and drive some business.

    Virgin Australia to be sold to Bain Capital

    Rex has signed an MoU to purchase new builds from ATR directly.

    Virgin Australia to be sold to Bain Capital

    They've got two ships afloat, Scarlet Lady and Valiant Lady. One will be for Caribbean cruises and the other for Mediterranean. Scarlet Lady is heading to Genoa to operate the Med cruises in the Northern Autumn before going back to the Caribbean so Valiant Lady can take over in 2021. Their third...

    Virgin Australia Financially Secure? [Now in Voluntary Administration]

    They’re still solvent because of the the government bail out. Rex went from all but bankrupt to announcing expansion plans including acquiring jets and replacement aircraft within 3 months, during Covid. And their deputy chair coincidentally happens to be a former Nationals transport minister...

    From VA it would be between her and JB. But for the program, McCormack and Sharp. Rex will probably name an A320 after Michael McCormack as a thank you.

    XFC leased from Sulaco Aircraft Leasing. XFD/XFE leased from CIT. XFG/XFH/XFJ leased from Wells Fargo.

    Should I cancel now or wait?

    As long as she's not flying from MEL (and you're not Victorian) she might be ok.

    SQ246 SYD>WTB>SIN

    It’s a once weekly cargo flight.

    Should I cancel now or wait?

    The latest news wouldn't change the decision to honour credits. Both stated in their bids that they would do that.

    Also the bids were submitted four days ago, maybe Cyrus expected communication every day but to not have calls or emails replied to just yet doesn't seem odd in this circumstance.

    Should I cancel now or wait?

    Both bidders have advised they'll be honoring credits and points.

    Virgin Australia Financially Secure? [Now in Voluntary Administration]

    Releasing a statement to media before business opens on a Friday, nothing from Deloitte or VA (would be surprised if they knew before the statement was released). This could be a bluff/call for attention to engage more. Bain won’t be the winning bid by default, and we should probably wait to...

    Virgin Australia Financially Secure? [Now in Voluntary Administration]

    For some reason that article is in US$. QIC are committing $200m to VA.
