• Interesting, how would you say the catering is different - better or worse on weekends?

  • If you fulfill all the criteria in their PDS, then there's no reason why free credit card insurance won't work. However often they have stricter conditions and higher excess fees than paid insurance.

  • This is great news as a loyal Virgin flyer. I live in Launceston and wishfully hope that they will consider a weekend LST-PER service in the future. It's still easier to fly via Melbourne rather than drive down to Hobart.On Saturday mornings, a lot of people transfer from the LST-MEL service onto...
