Completely agree with Boof, already feels like a bus station these days. Too many people! If anything they should make it harder to get Gold and Platinum.

Ah ok! Makes more sense, I was confused when they said the wings were made in Germany. So the wings are made in the UK and then assembled in Germany?

Interesting, I thought that all the Airbus wings were made in the UK.

I mean when you put money in the paypal account, don't you get charged?

Don't you pay for using PayPal too?

I stand corrected, last time I flew through Abu Dhabi was last year.

You can't get into the Etihad First Class Lounge on Platinum Velocity.

One way business class on Virgin Australia to Auckland (Take the Air NZ 777 flight if you can.) That gets you 60 VA Status Credits. Then get a cheap economy ticket on the way home... Sorted!

I don't think you would get a lot of people wanting to 'reach for platinum' if you get rid of the benefits you have given gold frequent flyers. I think you will just end up with a rather large contingent of annoyed people. No one likes losing something that they have already been given.
