• For me, I wonder if there IS an airline left that the economics for an A380 actually works for. The reason? There could be a LOT of them going cheaply now.. And, for the right routes, at the right second hand price, that could be the perfect recipe for an airline to pick up a stack of them and ma...

  • It was a round the world fare that virgin australia and virgin atlantic were offering.. VA Aus to HKG, VS to LHR, VS to LAX, VA to Aus

  • So just called virgin and we are being moved to.. Wait for it... Qantas

  • Hmm I travelled MEL - HKG - LHR - USA - LAX - MEL 3 times in the past few years with my next trip on March 24.. Will be interesting to see how we get to London now.. Maybe MEL - LAX - LHR...

  • Virgin Australia selling two A330's?

    I flew on a Virgin Australia A330 recently and one of the cabin crew told me that VA have sold 2xA330's (or are in the process of) to Virgin Atlantic. Wondering if this is gossip or true?

  • I've done both.. Virgin hands down. Much nicer experience overall. The only thing I like about Singapore over VA on those routes is the A380 or 787 compared to the noisy 777's.

  • A little trick, call them 3 to 7 days out.. You'll occasionally get a nice person who will upgrade you if there are more than a certain number of business seats available.. Although this has only worked for me domestically.. And I am platinum

  • We've booked 100+ trips for work and no one has ever been asked
