Take your cheap airfare refund dramas elsewhere thanks. This is about VA and itís people.

I didnt cancel flight and have flight put into credits before announcement was made to have VA put into voluntary administration. Looks like ive lost it all and lools like ive lost my frequent flyer points too

Hope you paid on a credit card. This isn't the right thread for this. There are crew here who have worked for 18+ years at the company, and they don't want to hear your complaint over a cheap ticket.

No, I am asking a question. If you have an issue then I suggest you raise the matter in writing to the mods/administrators of this site. If there is an issue with what i am writing then they will let me know. Thanks.

Vindiesel - that is a perfect summary. They might have survived, but for this COVID-19 black swan event.

People are losing careers tonight , families discussing futures and how to pay next months mortgage .
Your winging about a refund for a cheap ticket is pissing people off .

I did pay on a credit card. Will that perhaps be in my favour in terms of full/partial refund?

Arctaurus 20th Apr 2020 10:10

Saintly - Can I respectfully ask you stop posting about your ticket issues.

Yep thats fine. All i was doing was seeking some guidance and advice. I love aviation and love VA as well. My queries DID NOT intend to offend anyone.

My apologies.

There may be actions to repossess aircraft by leasing creditors very quickly
Really? And what would the leasing creditors do, precisely, with the aircraft once repossessed?

Hey Saintly I'll fly you personally PER-MEL-PER if only you can get my job back.

dc9-32 20th Apr 2020 10:13

Saintly

Pprune is not the place to ask about your refund so kindly move along......

log0008 20th Apr 2020 10:15

Their are thousands of people facing life without a job, the Australian public is facing airfares which will make flying unattainable for some and your worried about your lousy refund. Grow up and get some perspective

Not really the time and place to be thinking about yourself when 10,000+ people are potentially losing their job is it???....

They'll do what all leasing creditors do - secure their assets as soon as possible. It's pretty simple.

T-Vasis 20th Apr 2020 10:18

I think this will be okay. The vultures can now sweep in to buy the business. Going into VA helps improve the proposition of selling VA. They would not take the $5b debt otherwise...

They get control of them so they can be stored securely and not be neglected or parts pilfered. They may just stay where they are with new contracts in place for security and storage management.

Saintly,

read this about credit card protection. People are getting annoyed here as their worlds are coming crashing down so maybe take you queries somewhere else.

What do you mean by securing their assets? Do you think the creditors are worried that Virgin might try selling cheap aircraft on EBay?

TBM-Legend 20th Apr 2020 10:24

If one of the large creditors now appoints a Receiver because they're in default [read the fine print of any loan or lease] it may be the real end.

Arctaurus 20th Apr 2020 10:26

Hopefully default can be avoided if the Administrators get in early enough.
