    Thanks mate! Unfortunately I don't think I'll be posting here in the future. Doesn't seem to be the place for me, and I'm not too keen on sharing my tips and tricks here anymore*. Of course, I'm always happy to have a chat and a drink with a fellow flyer. And who knows, maybe I'll see you...

    Velocity Frequent Flyer Status Match Promotion - Closed 30 Sep 11

    Excuses, excuses....;) Seriously, we need to see you and the other QFFers in the Lounge one of these days. I just convinced my Chairman to do a status match today, now I need to convince him to start flying VA!

    Threads in Velocity forum

    I appreciate that other staff members here, including admin, have made a decision. I would like to ask the following: Can I open a new thread to discuss the very specific details of the brand new Platinum program in VA? There is currently an old thread speculating about Platinum. There is...

    Velocity Frequent Flyer Status Match Promotion - Closed 30 Sep 11

    In the SYD lounge tonight I asked how many Platinums they have matched. At around 4pm they had around 20. Lower than I thought. The kind gent said there were lots more online. When I asked how long it would go for he said until management decided there were enough. So I guess they have a...

    Fly Buys Promo

    As I and others pointed out, once they launched the credit card it would be nearly impossible to change the "Velocity" name. The new logo cost money, the new cards and credit cards cost money. They are committed to "Velocity". They have now tweaked it slightly, but it's essentially the same...

    Arrival and On Flight Changes since Announcement...

    It was interesting - you can usually tell who is a paid PE if they have the water/headsets already at the seats. On my flight tonight myself and 1F did, as did 2A and 2C. So 1A and 1C, and 2D and 2F did not. All seats full. But the staff gave them all free food and drink. Maybe this is a...

    Velocity Platinum Announcement

    Hayden, I can certainly appreciate that. But I think the best thing to do would be to say nothing. He doesn't respond to every thread and nor should he. He's got lots of other things to do. But if he is going to be the official rep here then I would expect him to always be honest. To tell...

    Virgins Pie In the Sky suggestions (new menu coming)

    Hi swanning, The flight I was on tonight, the CS and FA both said that they heard 4-5 complaints a day about the change in menu. They in turn filed complaints to the company. So they are definitely listening! And the New Yorker was quite good - a bit too much bread, but overall much better...

    Seeing all these QFFers moving across, perhaps it's time to organise a lounge meetup to welcome you all aboard!

    Twas just a joke folks. Thus the smilie. Hopefully our friendly little mod will grow a sense of humour as well! ;)

    Threads in Velocity forum

    It's a shame, really. I for one (and several other posters I have spoken with) would like to discuss and dissect the intricacies of the Platinum status in its own thread. Shame that a mod with a childish personal grudge is preventing us from sharing that info. (Though funny to see the new...

    Announcing our New Velocity Frequent Flyer Program

    Got a call tonight from a Velocity Platinum rep. Apparently there is now a Platinum Centre. Since I have over 2000 SCs she was calling to let me know I can gift a Platinum membership to a "companion". Was tempted to gift it to my four year old son, but my wife would never forgive me. So...

    Velocity Platinum Announcement

    Yeah, it's somewhat annoying that the VA rep flat out lied to us here. Not very cool. Would prefer him to stay silent than to tell a fib. ETA: And hopefully our friendly little mod here won't merge this thread into another based on a personal grudge! ;)

    Virgins Pie In the Sky suggestions (new menu coming)

    Had two G&Ts tonight. When I asked for the second the CS said, not sure if we have any left. But she found one for me somewhere. Which tells me some folks will be well and truly left out.

    Arrival and On Flight Changes since Announcement...

    A Platinum behind me was obviously upgraded at the lounge. He received full PE benefits. I asked the staff and since the Plat is so new they couldn't really answer.

    Yep, sitting in 1D and the menu is as per the link above. G&Ts are back!
