    Further Status Extension to 28 Feb 2023

    I got the email last year indicating I'll be extended to Sept 2022 but my review date in the app still says 31st Mar 2022 and I haven't received a new email about extending to Feb 2023 - do I need to call up the Plat line or just chill for a while? I guess the 280 SCs I've accrued are going to...

    Booking points redemption for another person

    I got an error when I tried that - but it might have been a once off, I'll give it another go!

    Booking points redemption for another person

    Hey all, I'm wondering if you can still book flights for friends on point. I recall there used to be a check box to say you were booking for someone else - but I've gone through the points booking screen by screen and can't see it. Can you still do this? I'm traveling too but I can't get a...

    Must 'Any Class' Complimentary Upgrades be Flown by the End of May?

    Booo that's what I originally thought too! Oh well, less revenue for V2 - thanks for sharing your confirmation! :)

    Must 'Any Class' Complimentary Upgrades be Flown by the End of May?

    Out of an abundance of caution I cancelled my trip to Sydney last weekend. The outbound would have been my 3rd flight, I was going to try again before May 30th but am I right in thinking that the upgrades also have to be used by May 30th?

    VA to Extend status for Some until 30th September 2022

    Did you get a reply? Does this mean we're better off waiting to October to book in SC earning flights?

    Flights are more expensive than ever

    Anyone know why there are no longer any half-price tickets available to/from Melbourne? Were the rules changed? I can't find any news on Google....

    Melbourne Virgin Lounge using old "The Club" Space - Overcrowded!

    I guess it was pretty full and I wasn't in there long (flight called a bit early, shocker) - it kinda looked like some areas may have been curtained off and it was pretty dark. I didn't really have a stickybeak though since we were asked to stay seated.

    Melbourne Virgin Lounge using old "The Club" Space - Overcrowded!

    It's way worse than the regular lounge. I'm assuming it's not fully open (?) as I can't believe this was their exclusive VIP area TBH...

    Virgin priority boarding fail

    Seems a bit silly since it's highly likely people in the PB queue will have free checked bags anyway. The only reason I don't check bags is for speed on arrival. Maybe I'll have to start now just in case, just more work for the VA staff....

    Virgin Australia launches 'coronavirus status extension' plan

    Yea it seems very arbitrary and I don't know how they can expect people to be able to maintain status in this climate. There's no change of getting back to normal for international travel (and probably even domestic) for the rest of this year...
