When do reward flights typically become available for flights with Eithad, booked through Virgin Australia with velocity points?
I'm looking to travel around August / September next year, but I can't seem to find ANY reward flights. Are they typically available immediately, or 6 months before, or is it just random?

I would try calling Velocity. I find the website very difficult to find much in premium cabins

Virgin rewards booking site using partners is a farce, very low availability all around. Ive had to call the centre each time to make a booking with singapore airlines as there is no option to do it online. They need to step their game up if they really want to compete, still a budget airline posing as a full service carrier in a few areas.

I'm not sure if I'm correct but I remember reading something to the effect that when the SQ/VA FF partnership starts this month that they will also release a better online booking tool for SQ redemption flights.
Could be wrong.
But you are 100% right its an area that needs addressing.

Gian, correct me if I'm wrong but didn't that partnership start years ago or are you referring to something new?
