I've always found the quality of service and in-flight experience of AirNZ underrated. I feel they are a reasonably priced trans tas experience.It's disappointing that their partnership with VA has deteriorated.

Very valid points Chris.Fortunately work covers the cost for me to see clients in regional/remote locations.However at the prices QANTAS charge to connect to places like Mount Isa or Karratha it makes sense to use points if you are personally covering the fees. Townsville to Mount Isa return can ...

I feel the same way.Double points is nice, however double status credits would be my preference.

I've had similar issues to some of the other posters with their website.Eventually I gave up in frustration and booked through SQ instead to maintain platinum.The reviews on their hard product are generally positive with some negative feedback directed towards their online content and some on the...

Congrats!You can review your status on the velocity website, which is the fastest way to communicate your upgrade.However in my experience there isn't anything personal about the process (i.e. phone call, email etc.) instead you will receive your platinum pack in the mail.
