Fellow family Hackers,
Thanks to learning a lot from other hackers on this site, I’m approaching my goal of 500k Velocity points which is about what I need for a return trip to the states in economy for two adults and two children.
Now it’s time to think about itineraries, and would love to hear what others have done on Virgin and partner airlines. I’m looking at flying April 2018 to St Louis Missouri where we need to visit friends, but thinking of a stop in Hawaii or an island in between for some resort time.
I spoke to Virgin recently who said award seats would open in August, and as a gold member they can make them available for me if I can’t find them online (for a price, of course).
Have others been successful in using points for this kind of trip? Appreciate any advice!
