    Virgin Australia Discover Gold (Status Match)

    May be this is to wait for the SC to be posted for any trips that were made on the day of qualification or a day before? My review data is 11/06. I'm doing the final qualifying flight on 10/06. I'd assume the person who does the qualification check is given 2 weeks, so that by that 2 week...

    Qantas doesn't care about priority boarding

    Very much so, IMHO. SYD-CBR-SYD & SYD-MEL-SYD last weeks - all 4 flights full to the brim. Very few empty seats and ABSOLUTELY NO priority boarding what so ever ... Not so much overhead space either ... had to keep my bag "under the seat in front of me" 1620622733 Not in my experience ... the...

    A simple flying 'roo return

    I thoroughly enjoyed the trip report :) Re : QF Centenary Lager - I have not tried it yet. I look forward to soon. Have got some flights planned Re : Carrot cake - OMG! I love that carrot cake - every time I go to the J lounge, this is pre-CoVID, I usually "pile" it up on my plate :) I have a...

    Virgin Australia Discover Gold (Status Match)

    I thought the review date was extended until June 2021 for everyone, isn't it ? Mine was 11 April 2021, later changed to 11 June 2021

    Does VFF have any lifetime Status awards to aim at?

    Not sure if it was intentional ... you missed "l" in plans and "p" in place - no offence, it was quite funny actually :)

    Beach/ocean side trip for 2 for Easter

    Hey everyone, I'm back ! Looking for some trip ideas to do over Easter break. As ALWAYS I'm late to do the planning and won't be surprised if I end up spending Easter at my western Sydney apartment, with no where to go because all nice places are booked. Anyhow, I thought I'd post this here...

    Virgin Australia Discover Gold (Status Match)

    Thanks @Mattg - I guess I will hold off buying this JASA fare. I've got until 11 Jun to make up another 30 SC, which I'm sure I will using paid $ fares. No use spending points on this ATM.

    Virgin Australia Discover Gold (Status Match)

    Hey everyone, I'm doing SYD-MEL-SYD this weekend. I'm on the Discover Gold thingy. Need to get 80 SC before 11 Jun 2021. I've booked a $299 J SYD-MEL, which will give me 50SC. For the return, I was wondering if I booked the "Any Seat" option using points, will that quality as a "paid" trip? Is...

    Friendships via AFF

    I always wonder the same. This one time, I was socialising with my next seat neighbour and then we both blurted out at, almost, the same time that we are indeed on a status run. He was doing it to retain his Platinum and I was on my maiden run to get Platinum. After a while, turns out the pax...

    Why do some airlines put such little effort into boarding passes?

    I remember once changing something on the bill for a prominent telco. The change included some bright colours, visual representations etc. The pricing wasn't that huge. Besides, the change was done on the main server (for the lack of a better word) and it was replicated on all the terminals in...

    Why do some airlines put such little effort into boarding passes?

    Some one here also had a similar experience in DPRK, I guess. Remember reading a trip report to Pyonyang and other DPRK areas
