Dear Velocity, consumers have voted you to be program of the year with Freddie awards for 3yrs running for a good reason - no redemption surcharge. Thanks for the double devaluation this year. You have effectively eliminated a key redemption partner from your program. And now I will not resp...

I echo that sentiment - we want justice for the 80 children and so many innocent lives. I fear MH's operations will no longer be sustainable at the current scale. While I will continue to fly with Malaysia, damage to the brand will take years to be recovered.

Thanks David! I have 6 friends travelling on VX for the first time in Dec, does that mean I'll stand to earn 15,000 Elevate miles as a referrer (6 x 2500 miles)? That's enough miles to redeem for LHR-LAX (VS) or SYD-SIN (SQ).

It has certainly payed a role. In fact MH has scaled back their SYD-PEK operations from double daily to daily, SQ will naturally benefit from the reduced Beijing-South East Asia capacity.

I would go over to Silverkris lounge for a nap when the Private Room is closed between 2.30-5.30am. You can find long couches there to lie flat. Ive done that a few times and staff were happy to provide a pillow/blanket. You can consider going back to the Private Room for breakfast before heading...

Dubai transfer from terminal 3 to 1 - doable in 3 hrs 40 mins between flights? Will be arriving with Emirates and departing with Oman Air on separate tickets (presumably unable to tag luggage to final destination?). Thanks.

How do I find out for sure whether SIN-BNE is still operated by Etihad on 1 June. I managed to redeem 2 confirmed seats that flight using velocity points, but it seems like the last flight for sale on Etihad website is on 31 May.

Too easy mate. If you have purchased some lifemiles when there were on sale at the rate of 15USD for 1k miles, it is extremely useful for Australia-North Asia (rates have surprisingly improved despite recent devaluation for most routes). 40k miles one way business with Star Alliance carrier (Tha...
