Rate of earn for Business Saver fare


Jun 7, 2006
I thought the answer for this would be pretty easy to find through a web search, but I'm having no luck!

For a city pair, say SYD to LAX, the Virgin / Velocity website only shows the distance in miles, and not points earned. There doesn't appear to be any info on their entire site which specifies whether the points earn rate is different depending on fare type (ironically it does show for partner airlines only).

On another site I read that economy saver fare earns 0.5 points per mile, so I'm wondering if business saver could be something like 1.5 points per mile. But this is a complete guess!

Would appreciate if someone can clarify this for me.
