They've done an upgrade over the weekend. I had heard one of the benefits would be faster posting...
Just did my final leg and again it posted an hour after completion so that is great news from virgin especially when you are about to go up a tier

Thanks for sharing that, no reason in today's world why these things should take days like they have been.
Instant info, nice one Virgin. There're heading in the right direction.

The issue has been the way Velocity tied the points to the dollars you spend. Looks like they have got that issue sorted.

So my SCs for SYD-AKL posted double with points but my AKL-RAR flight upgrade from economy to business got zero SCs and zero points . Guess will need to call.

shouldn't of your AKl-RAR received economy level SC's?
Even with the upgrade you still get teh base SC's right?
How was the upgrade achieved?
OR does the upgrade constitute as a change/variation of ticket therefore voiding the double status promo......removing all SC's?
just guessing.

Just completed my first flight booked during this promotion today. Received 30 SC for an Elevate ticket MEL > ADL (double the normal 15). My wife received the same and pooled to me.

Note that these were booked as Promo fares so despite what some have been told by the call centre these all seem to be eligible for the Double SC offer.

Flying the return leg on Sunday so will confirm if the same happens on the way back.
