I always liked a good 'dorothy dixer'.
Cause I'm not as much of a frequent flyer as some other contributors, a lot of AusBT for me is aspirational and reading up on any new routes or specials available.
I'm more of a bargain hunter then a lofty Platinum, but enjoy the tales from the pointy end.

Virgin Australia-Silver frequent flyer retain-200 VA SC

Qantas of course, has the better program, VA has its good points, but still, its lounges have a long way to go to go over the top of the QP (Qantas Club).
