I am new to this so would really appreciate some advice. I used to fly a fair amount for work and have accumulated approx 850,000 Velocity points. I am currently a Gold member but suspect i will lose this status after one more year (i have just qualified for another year). I still generate Velocity points through Flybuys and Credit Card purchases.
I wish to travel to London to visit my ageing parents. I would really like to try and fly first class but would consider business also. I have read a lot of your reviews on airlines and the different types of first class/business they offer.
How should i best use my points? I am VERY flexible in terms of flight date and days of the week etc. I will fly any major airline although my preference is Singapore Airlines if i had the choice.
I have scoped up a reward business flight on Virgin Australia but this is about 600,000 points and about $700 in fees. I am not sure that is the best use of my points from reading other articles on here?
Really would appreciate some advice.
