    Well, this is new...

    FYI the screen shot was taken from the "My Bookings" section of the VA website ... hence the confusion. I'd have thought if the TA booked on separate airlines the QF flight would not show up on the VA site?

    Well, this is new...

    I have some flights booked for work (by travel company). My SYD-BNE segment looks a little strange.. I am told the entire booking was placed with Virgin, so I can only assume Virgin have shunted me over to a QF flight? I wonder if I'll earn VA points flying a QF segment :) Has anyone else...

    Effects of new VA1 arrival time into LAX

    Does VA1 still arrive at the Delta terminal..? Last time I flew into LAX it took literally 15 minutes from seatbelt sign off to stepping into a taxi (after collecting our bags).

    UPDATE: Here is the complete story as to what has happened here. Bear with me.... The quirk with all this is Etihad have decided that P fares are not eligible to earn Etihad Guest Miles (according to https://www.etihadguest.com/en/earn-miles/airline/virgin-australia/). This explains why points...

    Believe it or not I actually asked for the fare code prior to finalizing payment. When I was told it was P I checked this page here: https://www.velocityfrequentflyer.co...lass/index.htm Based on this I thought "yep - earning points for this". I would have preferred to book VA codes, but the...

    Yep ..EY code for all flight segments (4 in total). If it was a VA code (ie, same flight, same seat, same $$$) then I wouldn't be in this position!!

    The flights were booked through a travel agent. Originally all segments were quoted as Y fares, however since I knew we'd be flying on VA metal for the SYD-AUH leg I asked for that to be booked as PE. What gets me is if I paid less and got Y fares, or paid more and got J fares I'd get the...

    UPDATE: received an email reply from Velocity telling me my premium economy fare class (P) is not valid for earning points. This was for a flight with an Etihad flight number on a VA aircraft(!). I was directed to review the information here Earn Points with Airline Partners | Velocity Frequent...

    Well I got an email reply saying VA have had to submit the request to Etihad for the points to be credited. Most of it was boilerplate text. I don't think I'll ever make the mistake of booking EY coded tickets again - this situation is just bull****.

    By escalating do you mean following up with a phone call, or sending more emails? I suspect I'll need to follow up with a phone call at the very least..

    I've submitted a retro claim via email .. will wait and see how that goes. Fingers crossed it goes through OK, it's going to bump me up to platinum if it goes through! :)

    Wondering if any other AFF'ers have had a similar experience to me. At the end of May my partner and I flew SYD-AUH-CDG with EY tickets. The SYD-AUH leg was on a VA plane (W class fare), and AUH-CDG was Etihad (Y class). According to VA I should have earnt 120 status credits for the AYD-AUH...

    Delay in posting of SC and points over Easter ?

    I just flew VA SYD-PER, PER-MEL, MEL-SYD (all within a 24 hour period) yesterday .. and nothing has appeared on my account either. Also, I used points to upgrade to J. They have been deducted from my account according to the Velocity website, but not according to the VA website. Something must...

    Snacks for every passenger on VA

    The crew did mention the complementary snack over the PA after the seat belt sign was switched off, but in reality who listens to when over half the plane deploys their iWhatsits and headphones while the announcement is taking place?

    Snacks for every passenger on VA

    Flew ADE-MEL-SYD over the weekend and received some free cheese and crackers on the MEL-SYD leg - they were nice. Felt sorry for the people in front of me who ordered and paid for the cheese and crackers from the menu, only to then be given the free ones 10 minutes after receiving the paid-for...

    Ah poo .. 80 point is still not bad. I still have some 2FORONE options up my sleeve, so I might take the Mrs on a trip somewhere before we go. Thanks kevrosmith

    The Velocity Status Run Master thread

    Hi guys .. I'm looking to earn 170SC's before heading overseas in May. I'm thinking about booking a Y-fare SYD-BNE-TSV-BNE-SYD run (all on same day) and then upgrading to J with points. I reckon that'll net me 160SC's at 4.35/SC. Does that sound OK? Looking for feedback from some of the more...
