I’ve avoided booking to Europe with points due to the higher tier they’re put in with virgins partners but there always seems to be plenty of availability between Singapore and Etihad compared to LA so it’s definitely not off the cards for me.

I use most of my points to upgrade on VA metal to and from LAX from PE to J, 3-4 times a year - the J product is fantastic as is the service. Whenever I have requested an upgrade at the time of booking, I've always got it 24-72 hours prior to departure however trying to book a J class seat outright using points is nigh impossible in my experience.
Have used points a few times on SQ to book a Y seat up to LGK via SIN and have found availability to be good and points required OK. The Gold Kris lounges in SIN are sadly not great, particularly the T2 one (lack of showers and always packed to the rafters) and I don't find that SQ really recognise my VA Platinum status apart from giving me access to an average lounge.

Am I Right - Virgin FF internationally is well below Qantas ?
