Virgin Australia have changed the layout of their website. In particular the way you book flights has changed and the layout/theme seems to match the Velocity website. I knew they had plans to merge both the websites into one and it appears that they have either done that of at least started the process.

Yes - it's much better and 2020 looking than the previous website.
It needs some improvements here and there but hey - it's never too late !

They've cut the number of times you need to log in from 40 to 12!!

Its not exactly a straight forward process but also not brain surgery, can’t understand why big highly resourced companies cant get SSO to work across their apps/portals.

I still get a peculiar error message when I first log in to Velocity from the home page. It opens a new tab that says "page not found". I have to return to the home page, then click "log in" again.

I use Chrome, so perhaps I need to use another browser?

PS - I hope Velocity lurks in this thread often enough to get some free feedback from members :cool:

The booking process look and feel I think is a bit like the old Virgin America website with a combination of Delta/Virgin Atlantic.

Though it does seem as this was how the mobile site used to work but now also used on the full site..

I think someone currently in VA IT (or maybe Bain themselves) might have instructed/implemented the "full Sabre" not a half coughd Sabre? I am doing a travel bank booking at the moment so this should be an interesting adventure. Already have 3 tabs open for a one way flight booking - lets see how more I end up with ....
