Suspect this private venture capital story is the first act of a long-ish dramatic event. An accountant/receiver type would be able to confirm this - ustand the cleanest route to re-capitalisation/change of ownership (and to void leases/contracts/borrowings) would be for VA first to enter adminis...

Indeed, twiningb - when or even will we be able to codeshare beyond Japan ?ANA fly to Munich, Milan, Paris, Frankfurt, Brussels, Vienna, LHR, Stockholm and I'd really love a VA status/points alternative to SQ or Etihad. .

Said elsewhere, but its an inevitable shame.. Had really been hoping that I cud read that VS also pulled its HK flights and wud be remaking a VA connection thru Haneda.How else does a VA fan get a chance on the 777 in biz ? - duration of the VA alternative to Europe, via LAX, is just too long - 3...

Used e-Gate on Wed at heathrow T2, all good, well signed, no queue etc, bu had to try 2 gates before my passport was accepted, ditto Mrs Tasclean with a brand new passport. The LHR readers mite be in trial mode, so expect the odd ‘unable to process, see staff’ refusal message..

VA will survive, because the country needs the balance of 2 competing trunk route carriers, tho I dont want to guess what form that will take. Tiger to go ? Likely - Velocity sold off ? Possibly - Intl program scrapped ? Likely, but subsidised Pac Isls program to continue. But first - before the...

Was advised by an expert in SQ matters last year that you really shud phone to ask what is happening with the waitlist on a regular basis, partic as your flights are 2 months fwd. Apparently this is important for both upgrades and straight awards.You can always test how many F seats remain by mak...

Haad a representative sample of both VA and QF in J the last 6 months, domestic and trans-Tas, all in 737s. Some comments:Service/attentativness/personality - VA, unless you're lucky to get an old-school QF head hostie. Younger QF cabin staff nah! Food/drink - VA consistently better : smallish s...

Yes they have changed, so that now Dom to Intl goes internal roads around the airport. But the return, Intl to Dom, remains out in the traffic.

Different route Dom to Intl than Intl to Dom..Transferring to Intl happens from downstairs at VA domestic gate 43 (from memory) so you are already airside, Probly a security thing - the bus can go around the tarmac, back behind the end of the N/S runway and drop off close to QF Intl bus stop beca...
