I recently hit Gold with Velocity, and have subsequently booked a trip to Europe with SQ. I have a couple of questions that I'd appreciate an answer on, if anybody is aware!1. Am I eligible to earn SC/Points (and the SQ equivalent) with both Velocity and Krisflyer? Or must I elect one or the other (currently my booking has my Velocity number attached to it)2. I booked directly with SQ, and the booking hasn't appeared on my Velocity bookings page. I assume this is no issue, but is there any way to link it so it appears?Any information/advice/tips on Velocity members booking and travelling with SQ would be much appreciated!

You can also check in at SQ Business class counter and get priority luggage and priority boarding (they don't usually mention VA members as part of the boarding calls but you can use it).Agree with Jorge-fly, the 'Krisflyer Gold' lounges at Changi are very sub-standard (they don't even have their own toilets) so it's only really worth a quick visit for a glass of water/soft drinks.

you definitely have to pick one or the other for SC and point

come up in my velocity bookings even when my FF number is on the booking. i
have had some luck calling up the contact centre and having them add the

Just need to remember that if you booked directly via SQ that you will be allocated Status Credits and also Points but will not be accredited with Sectors. Also your points allocation may be lower via SQ rather than if you booked via Virgin. I don't really understand why Virgin don't allocate Sectors by booking with a Code Share directly as if you book the code share via Virgin you do????
