    Can't change Economy X online any more?

    Anyone else seen this? Can't change an Economy X seat online? VA Platinum. Booked through CTM, auto-allocated 3D and 3C - which I'd normally be happy about, but preference in these COVID times is 3A or 3F - both of which are free. Try to change online - shows me 3A is free, allows me to...

    VA premium economy to USA - what is the fare type for AU domestic connections?

    I’m thinking of booking a premium economy ticket to JFK with the intention of waitlisting for a J points upgrade on the Au to LAX leg.

    Anyone flown PE on QF A380 Refurbed birds?

    Just out of curiosity, has anyone flown on the refurbed A380s and more specifically, has anyone been seated in 31A/B/J/K. I know these seats don't have the great extra legroom feature as 24A/B/J/K (which in 12 months time will be phased out,) but according to, Row 31 is...

    Had a booking from awhile ago and paid for econX and will be platinum before the flight(hence free econX) and was hoping for a refund. I know I will have to ring customer service but was wondering if any one had any experience with this before I do.

    Economy vs Premium Meals

    My family travelled on QF36 in both classes. Was a bit suprised the choices for the dinner were the same except Neil's leaves! I travelled in Premium and enjoyed the hot breakfast though. I felt that was better than the usual egg and bacon roll in J! Not sure what happened here.

    QANTAS Vs Virgin PE to US (and then MEX)

    I want to fly PE SYD->MEX return next year (1/6-8/6/20) and I see QANTAS have a PE deal for $3200 via Dallas with their 380, whereas Virgin costs around $3400 via LAX on the 777. I believe the US->MEX leg will be Economy only. Has anyone flown these 2 routes to the US and can compare them? I...

    Over the past 2 years I purchased on 5 separate occasions extra leg room on Singapore Airlines. When paying extra on a flight you do have some expectation of getting at least the same service or better in the cabin. From my experience you get the following: 100% of the time you will be the last...

    Delta not upgrading VA Gold to Comfort Plus [booked "Basic Economy"]

    Very disappointed on my recent flight with delta they refused to even put me on the comfort plus upgrade list. I requested at check in, at the lounge and at the gate. They seemed to have very limited awareness of the delta/virgin arrangements, which goes against my previous experience where...
