Having already re-qual'd PG on Qantas i thought over the last month or so i would direct my flying to Virgin to do my re-qual there. I'm beginning to think i may be wasting my time after tonight.. I've had to put up with a useless website (no one can tell me that the website is good). I can't select seats online, I've had more delayed flights this year on my VA flights than all of last year on QF. Putting up with Sabre is something I'd like to forget. The staff have little enthusiasm anymore, my last Qantas flight they were a lot happier. The flexi food is a waste of a cardboard box, actually i think tonight i would have eaten the box. The lounge still has no spirits! Tonight was the icing on the cake. Arrived at SYD and used the premium entrance which i do think is brilliant. THe lounge was a complete Zoo thanks to the weather and re-furbishing works. To my surprise when i received my boarding pass i'd been upgraded to J.. Very happy i was, and despite all the delays my flight wasn't too late compared to some. Anyway as boarding was a total mess. people just lined up where they want and there was no order.. PB fail here. THen my BP scans red. told to go and see the agent for a new BP. I'm then given a BP for 7B. i'm like WTF???? couldn't even get my original seat back. no excuse no real apology. I may be a DYKWIA here, but that sort of stuff up is unacceptable. If you are going to OPUP someone leave them there! I had my usual Row 3 seat, then i get relegated back to a middle seat. I see very little reason to keep wasting time, the Red Roo is looking so much better.
