I did have a similar delay on a couple of reward bookings last year. No issue with it but it took a few weeks to go through, so hopefully its a relatively normal procedural issue. Fingers crossed for...

I think they probably will once the government bails them out. Without government support? No.

I've seen the calls for Branson to bail them out but I don't think those people understand the size...

For clarification, are they saying that they won't process the refund for three months, or that it may take two credit cycles (which could be up to three months) to appear on your account?

Obviously they will be extended, but that isn't the current legal position.

Is the Waiver not meant to be read with the part where it says if you are impacted by the travel restrictions? If so, that would only apply to flights in the next 30 days, as the travel restrictions...

Maybe for precisely that reason - it means they can close a presumably fairly expensive Clubhouse when they already have a Clubhouse at JFK and focus their flights into one hub for NYC that feeds...

As far as I can see, no-one is having to fight for a refund if their flight has been cancelled, and a lot of flights will be cancelled over the next few weeks.

If the flights aren't cancelled, and...

In their press release just now they've also announced "Our London Heathrow-Newark route will be permanently terminated with immediate effect."

Because the majority of VS flyers are likely to be based in the UK rather than the US, meaning that in the vast majority of cases BA is their alternative option, rather than the US airlines.

Then in most cases in the UK they'll have to fly with BA instead, who have the same policy. Why blame Virgin when BA and many (perhaps even most) have essentially the same policy - especially when VS...

That's correct as far as Silver is concerned I believe (it should be the same as my situation) - I'll admit I'm not entirely sure how Gold works with VS, whether it's 400+1000 or 400 + 600.

The good news is that if you are able to cancel, under the Miles Booster terms you'll still get your boosted miles once the date of the flight has gone by.

Other than ANA there's not a whole lot that I care about losing as long as they're replaced by something else. NZ don't fly to Europe any more; SQ awards from Europe are only in Economy, etc. Sure,...

Agreed, it never hurts to ask. Most day flights in UC for me have been true day flights to the US (i.e. leave early morning and arrive early afternoon), but if I'm flying on an afternoon flight or...

Personally, I consider anything at 1600 or below return to the US other than the North East (Boston, NYC, Washington DC) to be a pretty reasonable price.

For the North East you'll see fares...

If this is true that's excellent, it makes Platinum status much more achievable and I don't mind the lower earning rate.

I've gotten them at both with just one exception in Japan (at a Sheraton). I'd definitely query it with Amex because you're entitled to those points and you're leaving money on the table.

Even without the points it's still useful if you want to transfer points to a currency that aren't a UK Amex partner or have their own UK rewards card, like most of the A* airlines. Even for those...
