Virgin have been spamming me with upgrade bid reminders ever since I clicked on the link out of curiosity. With a few days until my flight, I put in the minimum bid of $100 for HBA - MEL (first part of a two leg trip to ADL) and got it straight away. It was an Elevate ticket and I’m Velocity Gold. I wasn’t too fussed about succeeding - it was more curiosity than anything else. But it’s lunchtime and I do have a tight connection so it might be handy. I’m always surprised to see business class seats filled on flights out of Hobart because it’s not like there’s the added perk of a lounge while you wait.
