Hi Experts,
I have dug high and and low and can't seem to get a difinitive answer on this one.
Do Velocity Gold & Plats get access to the VS Revivals Lounge in Heathrow upon arrival off a VS flight from the US when travelling in Premium Economy.

The answer is no.

The door is open to...
Virgin Atlantic and Delta Business Class customers.
Virgin Atlantic Gold cardholders coming off a VS flight only.
Delta Platinum and Diamond coming off a DL flight only.

Yes, Velocity Gold and Plats do not really get you very far at all apart from VA's own sub-standard domestic lounges in Australia. It really isn't a particularly useful programme for international travel which, I suspect, reflects the fact that VA isn't really a proper international airline.

I disagree. When flying partner airlines it's fine, and in fact if you fly Delta, you get better access than Delta's own FFlyers. You just have to be a bit selective in your bookings and perhaps pack a Priority Pass for the odd one out.

While you are no doubt disappointed you won’t have access I visited it last year (on a J ticket) and you’re not missing much. It’s a lounge that’s designed for people to spend the minimum amount of time there so its hardly relaxing. The staff barely speak English and the breakfast food options are what you would expect from a 3 star hotel. I spent barely 15 minutes there and don’t feel the need to ever go again.

This looks to be changing from tomorrow (17th Dec) when VA Plat will be able to access it - which is handy for me traveling next week!
