Virgin America Has A Heart, American Airlines & Fiji Air, Not So Much

While planning our 5 week summer trip to the Pacific I needed to find a way to and from California.

I used American Airlines miles to fly to Tonga and home from Vanuatu. Those flights started and ended in California. Since we live in NYC and AA didn’t have saver awards from NY-LA and SF-NY, I had to look at other options or I would’ve had to pay around 30,000 miles per person each way.

Considering our international flight cost 80,000 round trip, how could I pay 60,000 to go from NYC – Cali?

In the end, I found flights with Virgin America totaling a little over 63,000 to get us to and from California. Continue reading Virgin America Has A Heart, American Airlines & Fiji Air, Not So Much

Yesterday I wrote about how Virgin America took double my points but I had no flight!

I spent a lot of time both online and on the phone with Virgin America trying to book a flight from NYC-Los Angeles. This should’ve been a simple 5-10 minute process. However, due to site being down, double the points were deducted from my account and no flight was booked. Continue reading Virgin America Compensates Me For My Troubles, Don’t Laugh

Did You Transfer SPG Points to Virgin America?

For almost a week I’ve been conflicted about a points transfer option.

Virgin America points will soon convert to Alaska Mileage Plan miles at a rate of 1:1.3. This in itself seems like a fair trade. I’ve been working (slowly) towards building up my Alaska account by getting the credit card from time to time. (I currently have 166,000+ Alaska miles.)

I also have 54,500 Virgin America points. I transferred 40,000 SPG points there over the summer due to JetBlue’s points match promo. Continue reading Did You Transfer SPG Points to Virgin America?
