Hi guys. Any idea what is the cheapest flight from sydney for a status run to get 200 sc from virgin so that it will be 400 with the double sc promo. Need to keep Gold. Happy with anything even @around 100-150 as I have just requalified and will earn a good few in next 12 months. Thanks Dave

I try to tag a domestic leg onto a trip to either NAN or AKL for the extra status points that gives me in order to retain gold. Generally I do either SYD to MEL or BNE for the domestic legs and in J they provide 50 status credits each with approx 80 for the international sector. The cost is normally $5 to $20 more for doing it that way but well worth it to ensure I keep gold

How much is gold worth to you? $1,000?
I also agree with the above - I don't think you can do much better than Sydney to Brisbane/Melbourne/Gold Coast to Auckland for 130 points each way in J.
If you can be choosy on dates then you might get set for $925
This would cover your 400 points and 4 segments in one trip
Also look for Promo codes on sites like OzBargin, Life/ Flight hacks can sometimes also get a discount to around $750 return to AKL with Domestic leg involved.
