I'm completely confused by the statement on the VA website:

^Discount Economy fare classes U, M, S, T, Q, V, N, E are ineligible for Status Credit earn when travelling on domestic connections within New Zealand on Virgin Australia codeshare services operated by Air New Zealand.


So if I'm on a domestic ANZ flight, on an ANZ flight number I earn SCs but not if it's a VA codeshare???

If you buy a domestic connection with a VA flight number in NZ in U,M,S,T,Q,V,N,E its not earning.

Thanks markis. Looks like the VA flight no's are more expensive anyway so I'm sure the system will push me on to the Air NZ flight numbered tickets.

One flight - AKL - SYD seems to be X class .... can't see that one the list anywhere so I guess that won't earn anything either.
 
Trying to access your favourite Australian websites when overseas only to discover they have been geo-blocked? Concerned about your internet privacy especially when using unsecured wifi? NordVPN will solve both these common problems.

Only NZ domestic flights in Y B Q H M earn ... out of luck with the rest
As someone who has increased their domestic NZ flying recently - flying Air NZ domestic is completely useless if trying to get SC for VA. Of course an alternative is rather non-existent if doing regional flights. Oh well at least you get lounge access.

I cant find what constitutes a Full Y fare on Air NZ NZ dom flights.
Did my nut when I found S class on Air NZ dom in NZ flights do not earn miles or SCs.
Will from now on fly JQ NZ dom from now on when I fly within NZ.
Edit: could a solution be that you put your loyalties towards earning AirPoints $ instead of Velocity FF points and SCs?
