Personally I am looking forward to this Phase 2 Virgin Aus. Better alignment between owners/managers, a rationalised fleet and clearer product/brand proposition should do wonders.

Definitely agree that Virgin Mk 2 should aim to be a bit more upbeat / funky as per Virgin America and Virgin Atlantic. The cabins have been fairly drab for a while now, and when they rebranded they became fairly formal in their customer service. Little things like not having in-seat USB chargers...

It was quite a good lounge with an impressive breakfast spread for the daily 10am service. We were lucky in Adelaide to have a dedicated SQ lounge, considering the flight frequency.

I think this service is just available in Australia and the UK. I’m in England at present and used it yesterday. Took about 45 minutes between each message, and about 3 hours overall to fix my issue. However I was able to work on many other things while this was happening, so overall I thou...

As a Velocity Platinum, one of my favourite strategies is to use the gym in the Etihad First Lounge for yoga. It is absolutely brilliant and leaves you feeling totally refreshed before the next flight.
