    Triple status credits on VA

    It will be on your boarding pass under "PNR" 1719099406 If it was a cancellation and rebook of a new flight, then yes, you'll likely not be eligible for the triple SC. If it's simply "fly ahead" and the lounge staff moved to to the earlier flight, then you should be fine.

    Up to 35,000 Velocity points for switching to AGL Energy

    Was considering going with this deal, however Alinta sent through an email advising of a drop (yes, you read correctly!) of 16% in my electricity rates to 31% below the reference rate. So long as there's no change to the reference rate then we'd be well ahead. Unfortunately I've found most...

    Flying Air Canada - Velocity points and lounge access?

    I've just jagged a J rewards seat for BNE-YVR and return next month, however I'm not having any luck with getting seat selection to work via the AC website - it just keeps returning an error. Has anyone had this previously and/or have a resolution (without having to call AC)??

    Penne arrabiata isn't exactly tough to make, and I'd say the same for the Thai chicken soup. Admittedly on arrival on Monday night they had Spinach and Cheese pastries, Sausage rolls and a few other bits and pieces, so not the same menu every night.

    The Velocity Status Run Master thread

    If you're going to do CNS then make sure it via BNE rather than SYD, as BNE-MEL (857 miles) gets into the second level of SC (80SC in J) rather than the first (55). Direct MEL-CNS is 1432 miles, so still only 80SC. That would be 160SC each way rather than 135SC. Currently pricing out as $925...

    Economy X pricing

    Rear of the plane is a PITA when it's announced on arrival that we're only disembarking from the forward doors today/tonight though. Much prefer to be forward half than back half if given the choice.

    Economy X pricing

    I got that same survey and basically said that at $1 it's getting too expensive for "preferred seating" and at about $15 it's getting too expensive for Economy X. Tell them the numbers that you're prepared to pay and hopefully the survey results send someone in Revenue Management a message.

    United Airlines new Virgin Australia/Velocity Partner

    That's been a bit of a surprise for mine, considering the horrible timing of QF's offering to LAX, however considering that UA also runs BNE-SFO daily, it would take away the connecting pax who would do BNE-LAX otherwise I guess 😎

    United Airlines new Virgin Australia/Velocity Partner

    Wasn't expecting BNE-LAX to stay and BNE-SFO to remain at 7 days a week into the Australian winter. UA appears to have enough capacity via SYD or MEL (0600 or 0630 out of BNE with VA, connecting) to get to the US West Coast, along with BNE-SFO direct 3 days a week.

    Virgin Australia lounge in Cairns

    Whilst there may be airlines that offer lounges for less, that's not VA. From memory, CNS is 12-14 domestic departures per day, whereas OOL is around 20 and the capital cities are busier than that again.
