• I feel bad for any Virgin Plats or golds. With the reduction of lounges etc not much benefit to it like once before. Glad I turned to Qantas a few years back, at least there are "some" benefits left. As small as the snack on VA was at lesat it broke up the flight a bit and was something small to ...

  • What a shame. I flew it in first from Singapore to London in seat 1A, and business form London to JFK return a few times upstairs. Love the 747 and it will be missed.

I actually checked and put in the complete trip with JAL in business and was really pleasantly surprised that it was about $6k. 400 status credits will help prequalify for Platinum again also.
