One way business class on Virgin Australia to Auckland (Take the Air NZ 777 flight if you can.) That gets you 60 VA Status Credits. Then get a cheap economy ticket on the way home... Sorted!

I bought a discount business class single from MEL-ADL last week for $379, this gets 40 SC. This was for travel on a Sunday at the end of this month. Get a cheap economy return for $150 and that nets you the other 10 to get you to the required 50.

Lounge access can be bought for $300 if you are silver (as I understand it), not sure Gold is much more valuable than Silver with lounge access??

Purchased Lounge access doesn't grant access to international lounges when codesharing, only Virgin Domestic and AirNZ

It's worth remembering that as far as VA/AirNZ go. Air NZ are so parsimonious that the only lounges they allow access into is Trans Tasman. Pacific Islands and any other destinations are excluded.

How long have you got? Link your Flybuys card, shop at Coles and you can get 10 Status Credits per month.
