    Are Virgin Plat upgrade credits worthless?

    Was able to burn 2 credits today on VA1747 under the current Choice promotion, after booking a week or so ahead; but per above, upgrade credit usage dependent on Z availability so will vary by route and timeframe. ie not worthless but very contextual.

    Bonza Airline Discussion

    Well we are talking at least 5-6x more $ to fly with someone else ex-ASP, so it’s understandable why some are choosing AB. And FWIW I don’t think there’s been a single cancellation on the MEL <-> ASP route in the 7 weeks it’s operated so far which is in their favour. Runs only twice weekly...

About 26 hours later than scheduled, but no doubt with many people thankful to still be able to spend Christmas where they had planned. FR24 suggests the...

    VH-YIY, the B738 operating this afternoons VA1746 ASP-ADL, appears to have departed and then turned back to ASP, currently remaining on the ground with no replacement flight plan visible. Reason unknown, however recovery options would be very limited. Although VA’s own flight status page still...
