Veterans should be recognised for their service. However I don't believe singling out veterans for acknowledgement before flights is the correct way of doing this.My problem with singling out one group over another for frequent public acknowledgement is, where do you stop? Without meaning to take...

Probably a silly question, but I've been looking into Business Reward Seats from MEL to EDI via AUH at the end of August through Virgin's website, every time it's quoting me 906000 points, or even over 1 million points, for a one way Etihad fare. Is there something i'm missing or doing wrong?

I'm doing this exact trip in June as well (albeit in Economy) and did it on Etihad in December. I was very impressed - good value for money and decent timings.

Question about Virgin Australia checking bags through to final destination on their partners. I've booked a flight next month MEL-SYD (VA) SYD-AUH-EDI (EY) all on the same booking. A Virgin CSR has just told me that I'll need to collect my bags and re-check them in AUH between connections - is th...
