    Upgrading Getaway/Elevate flights to Business. SC question.

    Good afternoon everyone 😙 I have a return flight ROK - BNE booked for the end of October. When I booked there were no extra/double SC deals. I was able to get Getaway for the return leg but had to go for Elevate on the way down. Out of curiosity I checked the same dates and times for these...

    Thanks @QF WP :) Yes I am now Gold. I got my fancy line-up moment when I took my flight back from my last quick trip. And of course the Priority Bag Drop. Do we still get bag tags posted? I had them for Silver. I must remember to sign up for one of the Hotel deals too (Hilton or the other one)...

    I've only had the personalised boarding call once. A number of years ago my daughter and I were going to Sydney so had to transit via Brisbane. No lounge for me back then. The 2 of us were waiting at the Gate that was on our printed Boarding Pass (back in the dark ages of no Virgin app). We were...

    I mean "It" as in the plane left at the proper time - too late to edit the post now

    I'm not sure 🤔 I was in the lounge watching Stan on my iPad with headphones on. I wasn't the last person on. A couple more people eventually lined up after me. I asked the Virgin Staff member if we were boarding early and she said yes they decided to as there weren't many people on the plane. I...

    Yes!! It was a Boeing 737-700 so had 8 seats in Rows of 2 - I think that's all we get with Virgin Business now that the planes with the nice individual pods are no more 😭 There were only 3 of us in Business and we all had our own row. Oh one thing I forgot to mention. My boarding time was...

    My Business Class flight was lovely even though it was just under an hour. I chose a Mimosa when I was asked if I wanted some sparkling wine - it was so nice - much better than the ones I had been making in the motel with orange poppers 😏 There were 2 options of salad and I chose the one in the...

    Currently in Virgin Brisbane Lounge. There are a few different things added to the menu. I took a photo of it and while I was getting my coffee a Virgin staff member came up said she saw me taking photos and could she help me. I thought oh no I’ve breached a security rule and I’m in trouble. I...

    Where is the Premium entry in Brisbane? The website says it is “outside” but no other info. I know premium entry isn’t open atm anyway. Also does anyone know if the Brisbane domestic lounge is open again. I just saw this on the website.

    I’m now at my son’s place - been here a little while but had some catching up to do. No cats 🐱 just rats 🐀😀 “Antonio” is hiding under the TV cabinet but “Alfredo” was brave enough to come out of his dome to let me feed him 🐀 😍 Not sure how exciting business class will be on a short trip from...

    Of course and it’s been wonderful to interact with everyone here. To be honest when I made that original post stressing out while I was in the Ibis in Melbourne I was scared that I would be judged for doing something wrong. I truly don’t think I did but I just wasn’t sure. But everyone has been...

    Yes not long to go now. Just waiting for that copper’s knock on my door around 10. 🥰

    Oh yes she is wonderful. I honestly don’t know what I’d do without her. I have a lovely surprise planned for her when I get home - once I book it and find out what day she is free. My daughter has also been wonderful as she helped look after my cats too while I was in Darwin. Yes I’ve not long...

    Thanks to both of you. I’m glad you liked it 😍 no croissants this morning 😳😭 but it was a “hot” breakfast of bacon, eggs, chicken snags and hash browns. I’ll put the full menu and photos up after tea tonight.

    I am really glad you think it will be helpful. I may not have posted much before this all happened but I have read a lot of the threads since I joined up a while back and have gleaned so much help from the knowledge and posts from others and am so grateful 😊 Yes it doesn’t get you far to be a...

    No I didn’t. I was hoping to just to silently judge from afar. I knew they were on but they were not near me. I did see a video from Ch7 about it but it had no sound and didn’t look like much was going on at the time. That was hours ago though.

    Thank you so much. If anyone else here ever gets approached by Matt to do a podcast please don’t be nervous as he is a very good interviewer and really puts you at ease. And he edits your flubs 😳😏🤣

    Hmmmm maybe but I don’t think there would be anything new to post about unless some of the guests start playing up or I order in a pair of binoculars and witness something juicy in another building Rear Window style 😏👀 Oh yes of course! 😻😻 And if I didn’t have to pay 💰😏🤣🤣🤣
