So what to do with the 26 Velocity points I still have?


You could spend $49,974 at Coles, add those resultant Virgin points to the 26 existing, and redeem them for a Tiger#2 flight MEL-SYD.

No lounges or food or WifI .. but it certainly sorts those 26 strays. :D

Hi would they be able to find out this information?

My company runs status match validation technology & intelligence for airlines.
Here is what I will share:

1) Validating your Velocity status is simple. Many methods to achieve this.
2) Our co runs a 'global loyalty match' list, which effectively is a database is people who have status matched from where, and when.
3) Customer lifetime value is a metric Qantas and other airlines use to determine your future value. Many factors play into this score. Qantas may buy data from third parties to build a profile on you -even if you've never flown with Qantas. Think Taylor Fry.
4) Qantas has some ability to know when you fly with Virgin even if you never tell them.

Loyalty isn't just some fluffy marketing program to make you feel good. It's straight-up data warfare, and you're the product.

I had just started a status challenge in March was 75% of the way complete with the required status credits when COVID hit... Will be disappointed if they don’t take that into consideration and give me another crack!

Qatar will probably extend your Platinum status for free.
Even if they don't - they do soft landings to Gold... (I think?)

For anyone thinking of applying to this Qantas thing - just remember - airlines may not say it, but generally it's a ONE-TIME-THING.
Only apply if you plan to never ever ask Qantas for a status match ever again!
Those that were status matched from VA will not get a soft landing. So we're hoping for an extension.

has anyone who submitted an EOI heard back from QF yet?
Yes, the request for more info just landed in my inbox 15 mins ago.
Asking for a photo of my current flyer card with the detail visible and an 18 month activity statement.
Anyone know how to get the activity statement out other than just taking screenshots?

as far as the Qatar status match went thru (with us Virgin refugees at the time), this question was asked many times.
you have to email Virgin & ask them to email you the statement for time period you want.
That seemed the best way.

Unfortunately that view doesn't provide enough info, the statement has to, "contain the statement month and year, membership number, name and tier status" and the activity view printed as a PDF doesn't have all that info unfortunately.
