Hi, I'm looking at Virgin family pooling to have 1 gold and 1 red member, instead of 2 silver. As we always travel together on the same booking, what would happen to the red member? Would they be able to access priority check in/boarding/screening? What about long haul upgrades or preferential seating - would we end up being rows apart? The only thing that is clear for this scenario is the lounge access.

Hi twocats, as I understand it - if you always travel together, you'll always be treated by the highest elite status held by either of you (just remember to have the highest elite make the booking under their FF number). You are only treated individually if you travel seperately.

Also, if you make two seperate booking for the same flight you can always ring the contact center to seat you together in the Gold section
