Reciprocal Benefits of VFC Silver

I have been BA blue for all my membership life, as I only fly for leisure purposes.

My wife and I recently flew Virgin Upper Class and now seem to have jumped to Silver membership. Does this also give us the same category itís BA?

Incidentally we only paid to fly VUC, to fly on 787 and were victim of the service replacement, so should have used 241 voucher, but would still be blue!

Virgin Flying Club status gives you no benefits when flying BA, just as BAEC status gives you no benefits when flying VS.

Aside from that lack of reciprocity, VS silver really isn't comparable to BA silver, as it doesn't give access even to Virgin's lounges.

That said, VS upper class, and their lounges really aren't comparable to BA club or GC lounges either. In that they are rather better (IMO). The lounges especially....

Virgin Silver is basically equivalent to BA Bronze.
