How do VA calculate velocity points for part domestic, part international bookings?

I know domestic flights are calculated as 5 points per dollar, and VA on SQ is x points per mile, but what if the booking has 2 sectors, one domestic and one international, for a single booking price?

Tronek, this is a good question. Many business travellers, like myself, always have so much confusion about an airline's points calculation. I am not an expert in frequent flyer programs but when I flew to Los Angeles with a stopover at Brisbane on Virgin Australia, they gave me points based on the international allowance because I had a formal connection.

Careful with those words. They constantly confuse commuters, especially airlines that fly to Australia or USA, about whether you have to pick up your checked baggage at your stopover. I would take the advice of an AusBT Frequent Flyer Expert instead.

It follows the international calculation (ie per mile flown).

The answer is --

  • If you've booked your domestic flights on a separate ticket, then it's domestic.
  • If you booked your domestic flights as connections on an international ticket, then it's international.
