Thanks to the great feedback on an earlier question of mine - I am focusing on achieving gold status via the Velocity program as I am now flying fairly frequently to Singapore & Thailand.
I have booked a return flight to Singapore next month via Velocity. However, I now need to extend my trip and fly into Bangkok for a couple of days in the middle of the trip.
I don’t seem to have the option to book this flight via Virgin so I’ll need to book it on Singapore Airlines directly, meaning any status credits for that will go to Kris Flyer rather than my Velocity account. Is that correct or have I missed a step here?
Second related question - when I was focusing more on QFF - I liked that I was able, in most instances, able to use my points for awards upgrades to business on my international flights. I don’t seem to be able to do this as easily with Velocity as the flights are operated by SIA - again, have I missed a step here?
