    Where to go after Marrakech

    I booked a Morocco tour before it was 'confirmed' then booked SQ flights to Barcelona and upgraded on points. The tour is now confirmed, and I need to figure out how and where to spend an extra 5 days after it ends in Marrakech. Suggestions? I'm leaning towards 2 days in Madrid, 3 in Barcelona.

    Multi-day small group tour operators

    With SYD-AUH on VA now gone, and MEL-LAX existing, I've kind of lost track of where you can use points to upgrade a Y or Y+ seat to J using Velocity points. I know it can only be done to AUH or LAX, but I've lost track of from where Does anyone else find this Route Map site confusing: Virgin...
