This makes complete sense. All Virgin should go to Qld as having all entities in the one place is a no brainer and also for the fact that I would think that Brisbane rents would be cheaper than Sydney rents.

Do the Turbo & Turbo S actually have turbos on them or is it just a naming gimmick? My understanding of turbos mean they force air into to engine to increase the bang which then gives you the extra power. Now if the combustion engine has been replaced by an electric motor how would a turbo work?

I will be traveling to Perth next year in April for holidays, but could also be going for work in September/October, so was mulling over the preferences - Virgin 737 or Qantas 737/A330.

nix584, you do earn SC's and point on HA flights whether VA or HA flight number. I took family to Oahu and Maui last year on HA flight numbers and got both SC's and point including inter-island flights.
