Finally happy to hear about company's direction straight from the source. Puts a lot of the armchair warriors on here these last few months to shame. I.e. VA can't compete with QF, back to virgin blue, VA the will be the ghost of ANSETT MKII. Get everyone's entitled to an opinion and heres my fin...

But then they'd be liable to transfer them, housing etc, relocation costs...

Agreed but I'm hopeful a lot for crew has been picked up in other sectors. You'd be surprised at the number of crew from both qantas and virgin who have gained employment elsewhere these last 4 months or so - particularly at moment supporting hotel quarrantine which was a deal struck between uni...

Wondering if the B737-Max jet orders are still on cards?

Hi - Etihad is actually giving you correct information - any airline will tell you to go back to the airline of the points you used to book. The ticket is owned by virgin and in their system with a VA PNR and ticket number o Etihad can't actually access it and make changes or for that matter iss...

I like Air New Zealand model - it clearly works well for them although they don't have a competing airline within their home country. How does the hybrid model work for like long haul flights? I think VA could do without feeding pax with cheap and nasty food (big fan of virgin but their Economy h...
