Should have approved additional runways at both Gatwick and Heathrow. It's only a matter of time.Also, the extra capacity at both airports would have ensured both were a bit more competitive, alleviating some of BA's concerns.

Yes it makes a lot of sense. Especially is if it "staffed" by Virgin. Also allows Etihad to potentially save some money / get some additional income.

I've booked for this and flying next year. Being in Perth the key advantage is getting back to Perth a day quicker which is partly offset via the morning departure. (IE Leave on a Friday and arrive on a Saturday ... Whereas Virgin / Qantas you leave via a connecting LAX Friday night service and...

An unfortunate con to this service is that the A318 fleet now consists of one aircraft. Therefore, if there is an issue with the aircraft the service gets cancelled.The services currently have been cancelled for the last few days as the aircraft has gone tech.Considernig it's a business only fli...

I think SQ is missing a trick not having a premium economy product out of Perth, if at least it is only 1 flight a day.The only airline you fly to London from Perth in full premium economy is Cathay Pacific.

I've made a short connection time of 1hr 50 minutes before, with time to spare.If you are on a single PNR (ticket) Delta will move you to the next available flight if you miss your connection.

As others have mentioned you maybe best to pay for the flights.A consideration maybe to add on a trip to the US and purchase a Virgin "Round the World" fare which could be cheaper than a return flight.Examples can be found here:https://www.roundabouttravel.com.au/deals/virgin-economy-rtw-airfare/...

Afraid not.When a flight is operated by an airline which isn't a partner of the frequent flyer program there is no earning rights.In this instance there is a codesharing agreement between VA and SQ. However, there is no frequent flyer partnership between Velocity and NZ AirPoints.
