While the holidays can be a busy time for travel, most people prefer to travel either before or after major holidays. For example, I doubt there are many people who are excited about flying on Christmas (well, other than those who don’t celebrate the holiday, in which case it’s a great day to fly, given that flights aren’t as full).
Well, Virgin Australia did something extra special this year for the passengers who missed Christmas altogether. This includes the passengers who flew from Los Angeles to Sydney and Brisbane on the night of December 24, and landed in Australia on the morning of the 26th.
Rather than having them feel like they missed Christmas, they served them a Christmas dinner, and gave them all kinds of gifts. Perhaps best of all, passengers onboard received a status upgrade:
- Velocity Red members received Velocity Silver status
- Velocity Silver members received Velocity Gold status
- Velocity Gold members received Velocity Platinum status
- Velocity Platinum members received 100,000 bonus points
Here’s the video about the flight:
Well done, Virgin Australia!
