Been in the scheme for a couple of years and have 120k+, but it’s a rip off. you can only use the points on selected flights and have to pay tax’s etc etc which form the bulk of the ticket price.
Plus, if you want to use part miles etc, you have to pay for an economy ticket in a certain class, and not the published lowest economy fare.
It’s the same for using companion tickets, all is not as it seems on the tin!!!!!!
Like all schemes, other than the ICH priority Club, shich i think is fantastic based on the use i’ve had from it, i’d say the the Virgin FC is no more than a rip off!
And yes, i am having a bad day!!!!!!!!!!!
