• VA is already miserable here, why would REX set itself in the same business model/market? VA couldn't compete with QF for premium travellers, yet still operated at high costs than LCC.

  • When there is not much cash on hand, voucher is all they can offer. I think it's probably time to transfer your large sum of Velocity points to SQ now...just saying...
