Just found a curious quirk in Virgin's 'improved' website. It appears that most of the destination cities in Asia have gone "missing". Basically when you try to select a departure city in Asia you are only able to select from a range of cities in China along with Denpasar. There is no Singapore, for example.

You oddly also can't book reward flights between Hong Kong and Singapore on the Velocity site now, and Singapore Airlines certainly flies that route!

On the SQ website I can no longer book flights to Australian cities where SQ do not fly. For example, I used to be able to book Singapore to Hobart with the Melbourne/Hobart leg with Virgin. No longer. Spoke to SQ and they just said make two separate bookings.

From what I’ve been seeing, you cant book any intra-Asia flights on the VA website.

The new Velocity site is terrible. Seems like 'nice pictures' was prioritised over user experience and flow. What was an ugly but functional site is now lovely but horrible. Oh, couldn't even load flights the other day either....

Their website is now exactly what Virgin America's website was like. The website developers must have thought their customers were simpletons/kindergarten kids in that every step of the process was big on meaningless graphics and (EXTRA) large fonts. I felt like I was flipping through a children's picture book rather than booking a ticket! Hey, I wonder how Virgin America is doing these days?!

The new website is broken in all sorts of ways. The navigation doesn't allow you to get to several sections that used to be useful, and things like the mileage calculator and support links are stuffed.

I had issues with this on the old site too. Couldn’t book a multi-city if I wanted a stopover in Singapore on my way to Japan, cash or points.
