Virgin Australia - Velocity Rewards

Hi all,I am currently a velocity gold with only a minimal amount of points required to retain it for the following year which I will easily clock up during my regular domestic travels. I don't have much incentive to go to platinum as I think the sweet spot for Velocity sits at Gold.I recently got onto the RTW business deal SYD-MELB-HKG-LHR-LAX-SYD for 2 (a mixture of VA and VS flights), so there will be plenty of status points on offer. I was wondering what the best program is to get the status points from this trip credited to outside of the VA program. Whats the most efficient program for these flights to gain premium status from this trip and open up benefits for flight network outside of Virgin's limited networks. As far as I'm aware, VA is the only one which allows family pooling of status points. Can someone confirm?

Yes Virgin Australia seems to be the only program that allows pooling of status.
Thanks, I might just stick with getting platinum on VA then, nothing else seems to be too worthwhile

SQ would be good, but their KF points do expire I think 3 years after accrual.That is the only downside.In the AN (Ansett) days I did think about the (at that time) accruing of points and SC, but then of course, AN carked it.Global Rewards at that time was a very good thing.Now, if you fly a lot, and plan to accrue and use KF points quickly, then its the one to go for.But other than that, VFF is the only one, thats good, easy to keep points from disappearing with Velocity too.
