Just received an email from Singapore airlines stating that from Jan 1 2019 Krisflyer points will transfer to velocity at a new rate of 1.55 (from 1.35). I would be highly surprised if velocity don't take up the new transfer rate as well. Get your transfers in now before points are worth less. A really bad sign for velocity as it was one of the redeeming factors for their lack of alliance.

Is the Virgin offer in relation to Qantas running a double status credits offer? Or is it to try to have people book flights? JCH, how long does the double points offer go for?
Need to activate offer first on website:

Means your better off using the points to bake a booking via velocity than transfer.

I suspect this decision was because transferring points between each was costly to both programs and they would rather people redeem for Singapore flights on their own program.

The problem with booking via velocity is the non existent availability...shpws up with once a week to LHR vs multiple combinations a day with SQ.

Given this am I best to collect kris flyer points instead of velocity on a sq flight?
