Hi All,


Was wanting to know if any one else heard the that VA will be adding a 4th level to velocity? Staff at the VA lounge Sydney said that it will be announced sometime shortly and will be comparble to QFF Plat 1 status.

Would definitely be nice although they could work on improving their platinum benefits first. I'ts a bit late now for me because I got sick of VA Plat being basically gold and switched back to flying Qantas.

About 2yrs too late. Certainly too late for me - switched back to QF when I realised that any SC earned over the 800SC required to requalify were essentially wasted.

Taking a punt, I reckon it well be Club Access

There is already great value to be had in above-800 SC activity in terms of gifting Gold or Platinum to a partner as well as pooling extra SCs to family members.  My wife scored an EY upgrade Business>First on an Award ticket based on her gifted Platinum status.  Wow!  There's a way to build loyalty.  Good on you VA.

You shouldn't really give much weight to rumours from lounge staff

I'd rather they introduced Lifetime Gold.
