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 Now if the combustion engine has been replaced by an electric motor how would a turbo work?

maabbot, well said. The only point I would question is the dumping of all international. If a destination was profitable (say LA or Fiji - not sure if they were just using as an example) why not continue to service if planes are available? Why dump a profitable route for the sake of it (unless it...

mitchsydney, enough already. All I have seen from you is bitching and moaning how bad Virgin is. We get it, yes Virgin WAS run very badly but if you remember Qantas wasn't so great before Alan Joyce came on board. It requested govt assistance and was knocked back. I am not a huge fan of Alan but ...

I agree Mightyreds, concentrate on domestic first and make sure things are tracking well then bring international back. I would throw in Fiji as an additional international route that would have been profitable and would be kept. Flights were always full when we went.AT i agree with you on the lo...

I am certainly waiting the outcome, as I am one of these people with a large balance of points (over 700k). I hope they are still there when Virgin is relaunched as they were going to be used for a Europe trip in 2022 for the missus' 50th. If they aren't then that's a bugger but c'est la vie we w...

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. It got me thinking whether Virgin would use the 777's it owns to fly the transcontinental if the economics show...

Yep still happening for me too. First world problem I guess, but it is frustrating.

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.

Sorry Sid, it doesn't seem to be fixed, I still had to log in to see this post.

Thanks to everyone that replied. I am probably leaning towards Etihad for the timing and going straight through even though the fees are steeper, although LP's idea of flying out one and back in the other definitely has a big appeal. Currently only Silver FF member (was just downgraded), though s...
