In regards to number 1, speaking from experience there is no priority check in or boarding even for VA WP. Same probably goes for 3.

1. According to the website, as a Velocity Gold member you are eligible for Priority Check-In and boarding.

Just on priority check-in, it's been open to Velocity Silver members and above since the middle of last year - you just join the business class queue, and if they have any doubts, there's a folder behind their desk that lists all the benefits for Velocity members by status, so they can look them up and confirm the rest of your benefits.

I did have a bit of trouble with Priority check in at Taipei, as the check-in agents are not Hong Kong Airlines staff and Eva Air staff (Hong Kong Airlines metal, Eva Air codeshare). They clearly were not trained for this. They kept trying to tell me Virgin is not a Star Alliance airline. It took them a bit to understand that Virgin has an agreement with Hong Kong Airlines. But they still didn't tag by bag priority. Virgin really should bring this up with Hong Kong airlines to fix.
