Had the choice of Dulles, New York Newark or Boston with comfortable connections in LAX. The Virgin America experience was reasonable although the CSM in J...

A travel agent should be able to clearly decipher these rules and tell you what the the TTL (ticketing time limit) is that holds the price for the booking. But it could be the fare class you are looking at, is actually...

    Booking a car rental via the Velocity Web Site

    I have looked at it but always received a much better deal using vroomvroom. Your booking is direct with the rental company and your credit card is not charged until you turn up to collect the car.

    My Virgin Gold experience

    As a platinum I am asked for photo ID more often than not and have absolutely no issue with the airline confirming my details to the reservation made. I feel sorry for the check in agent in this case, having to put up with the over reaction to a very valid request.
