I've just had a similar offer come through for flights JNB-CPT-JNB .. outbound is scheduled as an A320, inbound is scheduled as an A346. For some reason the bids were in USD - I've bid $95 outbound...

To the best of my knowledge, EY systems don't recognise status from any airline other than EY. They certainly don't for VA :(

It is VA policy to *not* through check luggage on separate tickets - even if it's two VA tickets. :(

Neither airport is wonderful for DOM <> INT transits, but BNE is definitely the lesser of the two evils. :)

Would definitely recommend an overnight stop in Brisbane - much less likely for something to go wrong, plus you'd avoid needing to do an early morning departure out of CNS.

I sit corrected! :p

When I looked in to in once it didn't seem such great value - though I think there was a wider spread in the price difference between J and I fares at the time as well.

Last time I checked, the 2 for 1 deal was only on full fare J tix - so not particularly good value.

No idea, sorry. The credit you get is an AmEx credit, so the subsequent flight has to be booked via AmEx. I would assume that if you didn't manage to use the entire credit with one flight, you would...

That's exactly how it works. If you want the status, you have to (personally) fly the required number of flights that earn eligible sectors.



They're basically award flights. What you *can* do...

Such basic functionality is indeed not available on the VA website :rolleyes: .. either call VA or book with Expedia / other OTA are the current options.

IIRC, a 744 doesn't have the legs for MEL-LAX - it's one of the reasons QF ordered 744ERs.

Kinda sad that VA have dropped MEL-LAX, but I guess it makes sense given their main hub is BNE.

That would be the entry to "The Club" - VA's worst kept secret. It's VA's version of QF's Chairman's Lounge - entry by invitation only.

More generally speaking - in Australia, no matter whether travelling on VA or QF: if you're in J and there is a lounge available at the port of departure, you'll have access to it. :)

I can't see that EI place their code on any of the Little Red flights I've just looked up (MAN-LHR flights VS 3046, 3042, 3048 and 3044) .. so they should credit as per normal.
