I'm looking at travelling to the United States with Virgin America (VX) and I'm wondering what their fare classes (Main Cabin, Main Cabin Select and First Class) compare to Velocity.
Is Virgin America's Y class the same as our Y class in terms of status credits and points?
Or are Virgin America's flights 'discount economy' in Virgin Australia's Velocity's eyes?

To add to that, points are earned at whatever fare class is on your boarding pass; paid upgrades at check-in and the gate will upgrade your fare class.
Cheap way to get quadruple status credits :)
