I was on a VA ticket with VA flight numbers.Was your boarding pass printed with VS or VA on it? I would assume that you would have been able to go into Plaza lounge if your boarding pass had VS printed on it?
By the way, good effort for getting WP from flying in Y across oceans!
Thanks! It's all on my own coin so not much in the way of J for me unless I'm redeeming!
I've managed it for the last 7 years through family pooling and quite a bit of long distance flying.
