• This would be a nice differentiation. But TBH a better way to do this might be to have grab and go in the lounge. I really enjoyed the coffee and pastry grab and go, and it would save the headaches of tracking down random WPs in the air. Decent but not substantial packs would be good for when you...

  • Virgin Platinum twice over here (i.e. fly enought to gift platinum to wife as well). We have to fly economy by company policy but I fly too much for work to endure a LCC service (or lack thereof) on flights, so will be moving at least 100 flights per year away from VA  if they go this route....

  • I'm a Platinum a few times over (enough to earn my partner Platinum as well through family pooling) and all my points come from bum-in-seat flying in economy fares in an organisation with an enormous travel budget but few perks in terms of travel (i.e. o business). I'm actually prohibited from th...

It doesn't knock you out and put you to sleep, but relaxes you enough that you can sleep when you want to....

  • I hope they move into an alliance. I think the relationship with SQ (which would probably be the only block) is solid enough to survive a SkyTeam move (at least in the sense SQ wants a non-QF partner in Australia it has some control of, unless it is allowed to operate domestically which is not on...

    You can convert them to BA miles super easily and then it's quite easy (and relatively cheap) to use them for QF
