Worked! Now if they had that for Virgin America it would be awesome!!

danFan

this is crazy!!! thanks!!!

this is much more beneficial than the BMI silver

.)As a Gold member, whichever class you fly in you’ll automatically receive priority airport standby, priority boarding, plus priority baggage loading, and an additional 20kg baggage allowance. Gold members travelling on Singapore Airlines in either Business or Economy can also use Singapore Airlines’ Business Class check in counters, and relax in either their Premier Lounge or Business Class area of the SilverKris Lounges around the world.*

.)You also have individual access to Virgin Atlantic’s Revivals lounge when flying into London Heathrow on a ‘VS’ prefix ticket. It’s the best way to get refreshed after a long haul flight before exploring the city. *I think that VS prefix tickets are all code-share Virgin flight so if you book a virgin flight thru continental lets say on a stopover to Israel this can be useful

rediculous

wat are the benefits

Libi

thank you very much is awesome gold with virgin and Silver with BMI without flying

manny

eli k.

shoots

AH

does continental status match?

Chaim

@ari: One of your benifits is that you could nominate someone to get Silver status.

“Spread the love: You’re entitled to a supplementary Silver membership for someone aged 18 or over sharing your home address. They’ll enjoy all of the benefits of Flying Club Silver while you will be able to spend miles from their account and reach rewards more quickly. ”

Can someone help me, on why i am only red and not gold? I don’t see much instructions. Is there anything to do more than click on the sign up link and fill in the info?

bostonbali

Just signed up myself (14:08 EST on 2/9/10), and got RED as well… 🙁

marco polo marco polo

dead deal

red faced

i got red too i guess its over

yosef

damn, i missed it. but who cares, how often do we all fly virgin atlantic?

Diane

FYI – If you sign up for yourself and your spouse using the same home address and telephone number, Virgin Atlantic’s system sees you both as the same person and will not allow the 2nd person to sign up. I spoke to VA’s customer service rep who instructed me to use another address and phone number for my husband and it worked fine.

Tyler

anyone figure out how to status match this baby elsewhere?

Dead

Dead as a doorknob, tried twice

DanFan2

Ok, Listen up guys & Gals,
Call the Gold 800 number and ask that it should be upgraded to Gold. They will look into this and see that it was linked thru FOCUS GROUP INSTANT GOLD link and a supervisor should upgrade to gold.
Thanks DAN!

David

Does this still work?

Freddie

Whats the @DanFan2:
Whats the gold 800 number?

Freddie

I think this deal has sent the Virgin Atlantic site into a melt-down!

d

it didnt work for me. anyone got any idea how to do it?

Daniel

WOW!! I finaly get thru and Got RED!!! YES!! Just as i was hoping for. Why do I try this stuff?? Not quite sure.

Monica

Doesn’t work. I tried for an hour to get on their website via the link, but it was down. Finally called in, but no go on the gold. Just now I tried again via the link and successfully signed up, logged in, and I’m only at red.

Dan/Ctownbochur

@Daniel:
Maybe that’s why you should read the comments and updates on the top of the post. They’re not there for my health ‘ya know.

BBBB

This is fake!

Dan/Ctownbochur

@BBBB:
Sometimes I wonder why I bother 🙁

al613

@Freddie:

RUDE

@dan/ctownbochur: just ignore the upnocious people.

MrsM

Dan, I hope you mean why you bother approving ignorant posts. So many of us appreciate your site and are very grateful you do bother posting these great deals!! Thank you.

MrsM

@DanFan2:

david

I just recieved an email from virgin atlantic saying the following: anybody else get something like this?

Thank you for your email and apologies for the delayed response.

I’m sorry to say that the online source of the instant Gold promotion was invalid and not authorised by Virgin Atlantic. Upon being made aware of the presence of this promotion online, our marketing team deactivated the instant Gold enrolment process.

This does mean that a tier status upgrade from Red to Gold will not be offered. I know that this is not the answer you wanted to hear but we feel it is only fair to offer Gold status to our most loyal members.

If you would like to find out more about the benefits of Flying Club and the activity required to move up a tier, please visit our website on the link below,

Just received this email:

You recently applied for Instant Flying Club Gold membership through an unofficial online channel. As a result, you were not made aware of the terms and conditions or criteria to qualify for the offer.

We are pleased to say that, if you meet the qualification criteria, we’ll be happy to honour your Instant Gold membership. If not, don’t worry, your membership will simply revert to its original status. Or, if you are new to Flying Club, you will become a Red member.

If you weren’t already aware, Flying Club is Virgin Atlantic’s seriously rewarding loyalty programme. And whether you’re a Red, Silver or Gold member, you’ll earn Flying Club miles every time you fly with us*, or use our network of airline, hotel and car rental partners. You can even earn miles when you shop online with wide variety of high street retailers.

You can spend your miles on Virgin Atlantic reward flights, cabin upgrades and more. From a day of rally driving to a trip into space with Virgin Galactic, the choice is yours. And it doesn’t take long to reach the rewards you want either, you can take advantage of great value Miles Plus Money fares from just 2,000 miles, and you can always Buy Miles to top up your balance at anytime.

So welcome to Flying Club, regardless of how you got here, it’s great to have you onboard!

The Flying Club team

The link to terms and conditions leads to the following information:

OFFER CONDITIONS
“Qualified Customers” are defined as UK residents aged 12 years of age or over who are new to Flying Club and hold existing ‘elite’ status membership of another airline’s frequent flyer programme. “Elite” status is defined as the airlines’ top tier/level within its programme.

Qualified Customers should be booked onto, and have flown in, a Virgin Atlantic Upper Class flight in J, D or R booking classes (“Qualifying Flight”) between 1 March and 31 May 2010 (inclusive).

Qualified Customers who are eligible for this incentive will receive complimentary Flying Club Gold Membership and 5,000 Flying Club miles. 2,500 bonus miles will be awarded to the traveller after their first outbound sector and if the traveller is making a return journey an additional 2,500 bonus miles will be awarded on the inbound sector.

Qualifying Flights are those flights ticketed on a Virgin Atlantic flight or with a Virgin Atlantic flight prefix (‘VS’) on the Virgin Atlantic codeshare arrangement with Continental Airlines Inc; or Singapore Airlines.

Flights with a Continental flight prefix (‘CO’) but operated on the services of a Virgin Atlantic flight are not Qualifying Flights.

All Flying Club enrolments and bookings will be validated by the Airline. Invalid enrolments will be disqualified. Virgin Atlantic reserves the right to remove Gold membership without notice on invalid enrolments. Virgin Atlantic’s decision shall be final and no correspondence shall be entered into.
