Didn't receive any correspondence, but received email confirmation of status match today. Not sure how many Qatar segments I'll fly before June 2021 but hey....

I received a request from Qatar to provide a statement with full contact details on it, but Virgin doesn't seem to do that. They obviously didn't accept my screengrabs. How did other VA FF's provide flight history to Qatar?

I would say it could handle it. Just guessing, but even if you assumed every J passenger on VA1/83 used the lounge, that's only 57 people. If there's say 30 gold/platinum members on each flight, that's still only 110. You may not have a choice of seating, but it would probably still be quieter t...

Pointless. Far better use of resources would to do a quick TSA style ID-check prior to entering security. I find it a bit strange in this day and age that ID is not required to book, check in or board a flight. These sub-contracted security guards wouldn't have a clue which passengers are actuall...

I wouldn't. SQ Y and W is a pretty ok place to be for 7 hours. I find the A350 J seats uncomfortable, especially with the angle. Plus, when the bed is out, trying to sit up with you legs out is like sitting on a board. The food is nice (esp. book the cook), but feels cookie cutter compared to J m...

VA does release seats, however the catch is that you need to be prepared to book last minute. I expect once they know they won't sell many revenue seats after a certain date, they release reward seats T-5 days. I generally book Y or W and then upgrade in the week prior to travel.

I snapped up a couple for VA1 on 29/4 :) Can anyone explain why, with 14-odd free seats still in J that VA would now close off reward availability for this flight?
