Hi all,


Have a flight coming up on South African. Has anyone had a good experience as a VA frequent flyer?

My flight is from London to Jo'burg and I was wondering if one get lounge access in London. It doesn't say on the website.

Cheers.

The Velocity International Guide only lists lounges in South Africa being available for Velocity Gold and Platinum, thus it's fair to assume to you won't have access in London unfortunately.

Correct, no access as a Velocity member in London when flying SAA.

(If it's not in the guide, the answer is always 'no access'.)

You could, however, book Virgin Atlantic instead from London to Johannesburg, as Velocity Gold and Platinum members get access to the Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse at Heathrow, among other locations.

Could apply for United’s status match and get *A Gold to use for access.

Air NZ is also offering a status match for Velocity Gold and allows a portion *A status credits to be used in their challenge
