Hi fellow fflyers,

Just a quick question I'm hoping someone might know the answer of in relation to velocity family pooling.

I currently have my wife pooling to my account, however her parents are taking a trip to Hawaii and I was hoping to stop her pooling with me and have her parents pool to both of us. I understand that any status credits my wife receives will not be transferable but at least I should receive an additional 80 status credits (help to get to Platinum) from one of her parents, and the credits she receives will push her to silver. After these status credits have posted can I remove her parent and re add my wife again to pool to me? Will there be any issue with this, i understand no status credits she has will transfer to me which is fine.

Also wanted to double check that after I cancel her initially that none of the previously transferred status credits will be affected.

Apologies If these seem like silly questions but was unsure so I thought id ask the question of the experts.

Thanks,

LoveToFly

To family pool everyone needs to be at the same address. Read 6.28 at http://www.velocityrewards.com.au/content/ProgramBenefits/TermsConditions/index.htm

Yes, everything works as you expect it -- you can change your pooling arrangement as much as you want.

However, a pool can consist of a maximum of two adults living at the same address, so you'd need to set that up appropriately.

John at AusBT has a nice guide on the subject here: http://www.ausbt.com.au/virgin-australia-s-velocity-family-pooling-tips-and-tricks

In your situation, I'd suggest swapping your wife and mother-in-law around. You get your mother-in-law's status credits and points, and your wife gets your father-in-law's status credits and points.

Chris is correct that you would need to inform the airline that you're living at the same address.
