My Map
After a while off flying for work have had to do a bit of transcon and have had the opportunity to on both carriers. Flying Y with no status; the experience is what you'd imagine, but a big feather in QF's cap is the inflight wifi on their B737s with no speed cap, where VA's free offering is speed limited.

As I'm flying daytime, it makes a big difference to being able to get work done. I know all won't want to stay connected when travelling, but it's been a big deal for me.

Hi @Ade apparently DSC is coming soon, offer available in two days if this page on VA can be trusted. Pls note, exclusions and conditions apply.

Wow :) this is awesome. I visited the page and although the text reads "This offer is expired", the T&C's note as below

*To be eligible for this Virgin Australia double Status Credits offer, you must (1) activate this offer between 12.01am AEST 20 May 2019 and 11.59pm 27 May 2019 inclusive (Promotion Period); (2) after offer activation, book an Eligible Virgin Australia flight during the Promotion Period and enter a valid Velocity membership number at the time of booking; and (3) complete travel on an Eligible Flight.

An Eligible Flight is any Virgin Australia marketed and operated flight and fare class for travel between 20 May 2019 and 14 April 2020 (inclusive) that normally earns Status Credits.

Hopefully the offer is true and becomes active :) Got some bookings to do. Just realized I might need an overseas trip in Sept

• Comfort: line-ball but better on QF 737 as the VA seats are hard and bargain basement. A330 -v- A330, same. VA 777 is better than anything QF has, and we flew 747, A380 and 787. Line ball.
Don't forget that QF have also domestic A333s which have flat beds in J. Nothing beats that on domestic flights.
