“The earning of Flying Club miles is much better than the Executive Club”
I don’t think its about how easily miles can be earned, but more importantly, how easily miles can be spent & just as importantly, preferences on where you want to go.
As far as my travel is concerned, because I have European destinations, BAEC, suits me way better than Virgin. Every longhaul for me generates more than enough free, easily available European sectors on avios.
If I was predominantly USA and HKG bound then arguably, VS have a good scheme.
As far as the VS lounge in T3 is concerned, I suggest you take a look at the CX, LH, QF (which I haven’t used, but include from the word of other posters), Swiss F lounges and perhaps you will rethink how good VS, T3 is… It is certainly funkier than anything BA will produce.
Your last comment about “a brand new market leading product” – I wonder who will produce the new J class seat first, BA or VS – BOTH airlines are in dire need of one.
Nice to see a thread on VS though, hope there are many more….
