    Answered VA Status credits question

    Got it. Thanks. I'll leave our Oct trip pooling to my wife as that'll take her to gold. Now how to plan our Sept 2020 trip to both get some SCs towards requalifying, as well as use some of our half a million points to get business class seats....

    Answered VA Status credits question

    I'm also unsure of something. I'm a Plat but won't requalify, so I'll drop back to Gold in Dec 2019. I have overseas travel booked in Oct 19. Will the SCs accrued on that trip count for my next year's 400 needed to re-qual for Gold? ie do they last for 12 mths, so when I drop to Gold I may...

    New international lounge arrrangements from 28 Oct 2018

    Fair enough, we arrive at 4:30pm so maybe it;ll be ok.

    New international lounge arrrangements from 28 Oct 2018

    Gee I hope so. Flying BNE - CHC in late Sept and if this one isn't open, it might be better to visit the domestic lounge on arrival from Syd, rather than chance the Plaza lounge that is reportedly rubbish.

    E-rewards, offered a four hour long survey.

    Would you do any other sort of work for $30 for 4 hours? No, didn't think so.

    Something big is coming! (1st May)

    Sorted. I'm pooling to my wife. My account only shows the base points - "X points pooled to member 123456" - but checking her account, the bonus points were all added correctly, direct to hers.

    Something big is coming! (1st May)

    Almost the same for me. Just transferred a big pile of ANZ Rewards points and Flybuys points over to Velocity. The base points all went onto my Velocity account (Flybuys instantly, ANZ within 24 hrs) but only the base redemption. No bonus points for either transfer have appeared. Particularly...

    Virgin cutting SYD-CHC flights?

    I've booked SYD-CHC in late September for a family holiday. VA has emailed me syaing my flights have changed, we've now been moved to SYD-BRI then BRI-CHC at approximately the same time as the original booking. VFF service couldn't tell me why but I took this thread as my source! It's a bit of...

    Not Flying VA / VS through HKG Again to LHR

    Fair enough. The plan to buy Y and upgrade to J was to get the Y SCs to help requalify for the year.

    Not Flying VA / VS through HKG Again to LHR

    Is it much of a lottery? eg if you buy Economy flights and request points upgrade immediately, both 6 months in advance?

    Not Flying VA / VS through HKG Again to LHR

    I thought buying SQ economy and using KF points to upgrade would be very straightforward. It seemed to be when I last flew with them.

    Not Flying VA / VS through HKG Again to LHR

    A bit torn on whether to do this. Wife and I want to get to LHR in J next year and have ~580,000 VFF points which I don't think will get us 2 x J SYD-LHR return. Also want to earn SCs - I'm WP but will be downgraded to SG in Dec and want to re-qual for that. Options include: 1) Buy VA Y fare...

    Answered Krisflyer Lounge access

    I went to SIN lounge as VA Gold with wife and 2 kids under 10. They weren't keen, as they said that kids counted as guests, and I could only bring 1 guest in. But as it was early and the lounge was empty, they said "just this time" and let us all in.

    New Baggage crackdown starts this week at VA

    QF have changed their rules. Previously 2 x 7kg bags can now be taken on as 1 x 10kg and 1 x 4kg. Apparently they think that X% of people carry between 7-10kg so this will allow them to use 1 bag and use less overhead locker space, rather than people with 9-10kg of stuff having to use 2 bags...

    Exactly. Turns out the House allows 2 x under-12s plus 1 adult guest, so luckily its all sorted.
