I'm attempting to book some SYD-BNE tickets before they sell out on the first weekend of the border opening. Unfortunately it's not letting me book with travel bank or future flight credits? Is anyone else encountering this?
A common problem. You just need to use the new Virgin site to book:
Is there a way to use a flight credit that doesn't cover all the airfare.
Flight credit $145 flight is $199.
I want to use the flight credit and then pay the balance with the credit card.
I have 3 cancelled international flights with future flight credits. ugh. It is going to take me ages to work through them domestically. The issue for me is that you could not make a second booking until you had completed the flight from the first. At that rate I was not going to burn the future credits and there was no certainty that I would be able to use them. It turns out that I have been able to make three domestic bookings at a time.... one from each of the cancelled international booking cancellations. A lot of work in keeping track though. As I complete each trip, then I can now make a booking from the credit of that original flight credit. Sucks a bit though without the lounges. Am waiting to see who VA affiliate with internationally as to whether it will be worth the continued patronage without access to lounges.This seems to be a common theme. Economy conditional credit fares are plentiful and if you've got a reasonably small balance then booking a short domestic trip away is quite easy.
I do feel sorry for those who've got conditional credits from AU-LAX in Business class with some of those fares likely well over $10k per person.
