    ANA reward availability

    I've flown SQ J to Japan and got the A380 which was great. But would prefer direct from Syd if possible. Even with domestic connection still quicker than via SIN. But SQ defn an option.

    ANA reward availability

    Thanks. I guess other option would be to book a velocity rewards with another airline that's available eg SQ or VA and then switch to ANA and pay the seat points difference plus 7500 points change fee.

    ANA reward availability

    What's the timing of award release for ANA to Haneda via Velocity? Looking to book J x 2 for MEL - HND. Can see availability within 2 weeks but not that many longer? Are seats only released last minute or are they available some time out too? TIA

    Velocity status on Singapore Airlines

    If travelling on SQ J booked via Krisflyer Awards, are there any benefits in providing VelFF number? i.e. do you earn Vel Status Credits? I can't figure it out if this only applies to cash fares?

    Card Promotions 100,000 bonus Velocity points + up to 100 status credits with Virgin Money Flyer cards (ends 31/1/22)

    Does anyone know if there is a 12 month block out on this? I can't see it on the T&Cs so appears to be for any new customers irrespective if they've held Citi or Virgin products? Appears to be good deal.

    Krisflyer Rewards Children?

    It's not quite clear from KF website if children award redemptions are same as adult? For SQ partners it is clear, but assume for children under 12 (10 y/o), they are treated as adults for points redemptions?

    1mil points - likelihood of getting 4x business rewards seats?

    I'm similar with SQ /VFF. Am looking 12 mths ahead on different routes. Routes with short stop overs are popular so if you're willing to hang at airport or stay over night then you might have more luck.
