Anyone able to tell me if a trip to Haikou (China) is regarded as international short haul or international long haul? I've asked the Q on the Virgin Australia Facebook page and all they do is give me a link to Hainen Airlines.

If you're flying from Australia it's most definitely long haul.

Virgin Australia doesn't fly there, so if you're hoping to use your points or Platinum certificates to get a business class upgrade, you won't be able to do that.

"Four complimentary fare upgrades per year from a Freedom fare to a Business Class seat on Domestic, Trans Tasman or International Short Haul flights marketed and operated by Virgin Australia."
So Hainen Airlines, which is marketed by VA, and operating under Hainen (but VA by default) doesn't count?
