Virgin Australia’s new checked luggage rules, recently introduced alongside the airline’s move to the Sabre booking system, could catch a few travellers unaware.
The following are the breakdown courtesy of Australian Business Traveller.
The big change here is the economy allowance: a reduction when flying on the cheapest tickets, and needing to spread weight over more bags when on Saver or Flexi fares.
Gold members should also focus on economy fares: again, you have less weight when buying the cheapest fares, but two smaller bags instead of one large bag on Saver or Flexi tickets.
Good news for Silvers: you get an extra bag when on a Saver or Flexi fare.
Velocity Red and non-Velocity members
There’s no real change for Red members: the only difference is that Saver Lite is the new fare without bags, while Saver is the new cheaper fare with a bag.
Passengers without Velocity Frequent Flyer status have the same allowances as Velocity Red members.
