I'm more of a Qantas/Oneworld flyer in general, but I truly hope Virgin will survive this and come out a better airline. We definitely need two strong airlines domestically to keep the market competitive. Perhaps that's what Virgin can focus on for the next few years by building a smart domestic ...

I know money may be an issue, but wouldn't this be a great time to do Syd domestic lounge refurbishments?

Yes I saw that email too. Whilst it is a nice touch, the reality is nobody knows when this will be over therefore cannot commit to any travel plan for the foreseeable future. A lot of companies and people are going to have significant financial impact too and will have reduced/if any travel budge...

They are only allowing cancellation for some regions. Their worldwide policy is to change bookings to a later date this year without charge. But seriously who on earth can lock in any travel dates in this uncertain situation! I've got hotels booked in Montreal, Chicago, Sydney, etc etc mostly du...

Good on you Hilton. My Colleague just go his Diamond status extended to March 31, 2022. In fact most major hotel chains have been very proactive and generous during this difficult time, EXCEPT Accor! Nothing about status extension, very restrictive cancellation options on existing bookings...ver...

However they will look like, I hope Virgin will survive this because we need two airlines in this country to balance the market.

Every airline in the world is facing the same hardship at the moment (perhaps except Qatar by the look of things at the moment). I think it will also depend on how much the government will support them down the track. I'm sure many countries will throw huge loads of money to save their national ...

I know they announced cancelling all international flights till at least end of May, but my bookings are still showing the flights. I wonder if Qantas is deliberately delaying the process in the hope that many people will convert flights to vouchers by the March 31 deadine so they don't have to d...

I have a Qantas return Melbourne-Shanghai flight booked for May departure and June return. If I cancel now, I'll get the credit voucher which may have some restrictions (e.g. fare class, etc) when I rebook. But because Qantas is cancelling most of their international flights, some of my flights a...

Agree with Sibelius. I'm in similar situation with flights booked in late May and June to North America. Better to wait to late April/May and see what the situation is. If the travel ban and restrictions are still in place, then airlines and hotels will most likely extend their fee waiver/refund/...
