Here is my prediction - SQ will not give a STUFF late 2020, re a one time VA Gold "Elite" member, when VA are no more.The way I see it - I got 1 RT to Europe for 280k points in J vs a single one way J (if booked with KF) to Europe for the same points.
280K of Virgin points are likely as useful as Zimbabwe Dollars to you at that point. SQ are not in the habit of giving away long haul tickets free. Virgin *PAYS* SQ WHEN you fly - not before. No money = no fllghts very likely. SQ have their own issues.
One needs only 232,000 KF for a RETURN flight SYD-Europe on SQ A380 in Business Class. Or 326,000 return in SQ First SUITES
THAT award will occur in December or anytime in 2021 as SQ WILL still be in business. Virgin will not be by July it appears, barring a miracle.
But as you say, losing this amount of points is irrelevant to you.
