    The Virgin Australia Newbie Questions Thread

    Hi all. Have a question about status and bonus points when flying. Mrs Cagiva has just qualified for silver status and had booked a flight before then. When she flew, she was red on the outbound but silver on the return. Tried to claim the missing 50% points for the return leg but the answer...

    SQ Tips, Trips and Tales

    Same thing happened to me last year. I gave up as it was about 12.30 and went to bed. Next morning opened my email and found an email from SQ asking "Do you still want to buy you flight...." So I clicked on the link and went ahead. I then received all the pins later on via sms.

    Transfer from velocity to krisflyer if redeeming for SQ flight.

    Thanks guys. This year I had most of the kF points that i needed to book a return and was lucky to grab a VFF one way to Europe. Just thinking ahead for possible scenarios next year.

    Transfer from velocity to krisflyer if redeeming for SQ flight.

Flight across was through velocity (121,500 velocity points and $476.00). Return through Krisflyer (133,500 and $95.00) saver would have been cheaper...

    Passport Renewal / Application - Time Taken?

    My point was that the cost of producing an Aussie passport can't be any more than others that have more technology involved and cost half the price! And the time taken is not acceptable. Some foreign Consulates will print your passport while you wait. Half hour appointment to do everything...

    Passport Renewal / Application - Time Taken?

    I stand corrected. I can't remember where I looked up the price at the time. Security? I don't know for sure about the other European passports, but the Italian passport has a copy of the photo and fingerprints contained in the microchip. That is better security than ours. And as for strength...

    Passport Renewal / Application - Time Taken?

    The cost of manufacture of a passport should only be a small fraction of it's price. Just did a comparison of a few European countries. Here are approximate prices: The British passport is a rip-off at $450 German $132 French $156 Italian $193 I think the Australian is way overpriced as well!

    SQ Tips, Trips and Tales

    Don't know if this is the correct place to post. Mods please move if not. Just looking at flights to Europe next year and noticed that the points required ex PER for J are saver 119,500 and advantage 133,500. Why is it that flights to/from IST is cheaper in saver 81,500 and more expensive in...

    NAB Changes Sign-Up Bonus Exclusion Period from 12 to 18 Months

    Got knocked back for a NAB Rewards Signature Card after initial approval. I have just sent a closure letter for my NAB Qantas Rewards Signature Card as in speaking to them today they suggested that the fact that this card was still coming up on my account may have been an issue. Has anyone had...
