why not putting them through Singapore's KrisFlyer? You could also get the advantages of an alliance and more consistent benefits than VA.

Getting Platinum with Velocity is worth it if you can get there, especially if you fly a lot domestically. The 4 x business class upgrades and economy x seating are nice treats. Assuming you're just at 500 credits, your minimum earn for a return trip to Thailand in Business (assuming from the east coast) is going to get you 240 credits. So you're 260 short of platinum. Have you looked at family pooling and taking a quick trip?But, if you definitely can't get to platinum, then I'd move them to KrisFlyer for sure.
Thanks for the replies. Currently standing at 526. The Thailand trip is via Singapore so should get me 360, but then I have SC's starting to expire. Need to find another 120 or so for Plat I reckon.
Also, just to consider, coles and flybuys are offering double status credits this month, in case this is helpful. Perhaps a short domestic run could also help?

I'm very similar most years hit gold no worries but never come close too platinum (unless I booked flexible tickets all the time, which I won't) so I family pool to my partner after the 400sc for retaining gold allowing her to get silver.
