I’ve read conflicting reports about people receiving both status credits and velocity points from reward travel with Virgin.
My scenario is that I booked 2 X 1 way business reward flights from Mel - Dub through my Velocity FF account on Etihad, one for me and one for my partner (who is also a Velocity member). Both of our FF numbers are assigned to assigned to the booking.
Now I presume that I won’t get anything for this with it being a reward ticket but has anyone been lucky enough to receive anything for similar flights in the past? Would my partner be more likely to be credited points as I made the booking. Alternatively, if I registered for Etihad Guest is there a loophole in the information passed between the two airlines which would help me?
The credits for this flight, if received would bump me up to Velocity Gold so there’s an added incentive here for me.
