Hey

Booked a reward seat last year to LAX, booked in Sep 2013 for flights in Feb 2014 for 80,000 points, looked into booking the same this year and find it's now around 94,000 points.. ouch!! anyone else notice we seem to be able to travel less for the same points these days? I fly Virgin a lot for business, so the only real perk of all that travel is a trip OS with my partner.. wonder if the qantas program is better these days..

Cheers
Steve

I think if you compare the taxes for BNE-LAX between the two carriers programs, you will have your specific answer...

My guess is you booked your last reward flight during a VA 15% 'discount' promo. ;)
