• Hope the Singapore travel bubble will follow soon and we can all enjoy these lounges. I miss travel.....

  • If it had been pre-cobid, I would've cursed the decision. But now, it doesn't bother me at all since we can't travel. There is no difference whether no airlines fly to BNE or 100 airlines open a new route to BNE. It's all irrelevant since we can't travel!If we are allowed to travel again, I don't...

  • My point is not about whether VA should join an alliance or not. That's not what Chris was asking. He is just asking about our point of view whether we should transfer with current bonus or not. My point was, if VA joined an alliance, the points will certainly be more valuable. But at current sta...

  • I've given up on velocity long before they went into administration. There had been a lot of devaluations that made it not very lucrative. I doubt the conversion to KF will be back as SQ is no longer a share holder of VA. Its partnership with EY is also in question given 1. EY also isnt a sh...

  • I hope the governments will be sensible and not aiming for absolute zero cases. The vaccine is only 90-95% effective, meaning that 5-10% of people will still get it. But the goal should be keep the number low enough so that hospital can cope. No doubt there will still be a few sporadic cases of p...

  • It is very clear that Bain direction to the new VA is more towards LCC than a full service airline. Currently it is so bareboned that you can argue that JQ is better (at least you can buy food). I just flew a rt with them to Darwin in business class, 2 minute noodle is all you get (or some other ...

  • On your passport it is very easy to see where you've been in the last 14 days. If you weren't in NZ in the last 14 days, they can easily put a stamp on your incoming card "quarantine required". You will then be redirected to the queue to get on the quarantine hotel bus. If you plan to enter NZ yo...

    VA actually encourage you to BYO. At check in they warned us that the service will be limited and advice that I BYO.

    Depending on what you are after. Citiprestige is not a good card for earning points, I would stick with platinum charge if that's what you are after.But if its perks you are after, there are some unique perks in Citiprestige that may make the $700 worthwhile. The biggest is obviously the 4th nigh...

  • Altitude Points

    Personally I would recommend you to broaden your vision and see beyond velocity and Qantas points. Altitude reward is actually very valuable and I would look into Krisflyer and Asia Miles. As to when banks will allow transfer to velocity again, I think that's no one knows. Bain capital has bigger...
