    Virgin were in a world of pain; now exacerbated by bushfires and corona. Will they survive? They've tipped in a whole lot of cash to launch to BNE-Haneda flights - likely to be devoid of PAX post the Diamond Princess debacle. Scurrah will need to make some hard decisions quickly else be relegated to the failed CEOs scrapheap.

      I don’t get the avalanche of negs, (all without comment) this is spot on. They’re in a lot of trouble, as are their large airline shareholders.

      If you don’t need to travel right away I’d say hold off buying. Could be some bigger bargains to be had.

      Negs are probably due to comment being misleading (doom and gloom). Financial pain is real, yes, but it's more complicated than that as their survivability is underpinned by their 90% shareholders. They enjoy the benefits VA bring to their networks (codeshare agreements etc.), and are getting good value (maybe too much) from this airline, all while happy to let the remaining 10% public share price sit below 20 cents for a long time.

      I don't think they're in as bad shape as everyone makes out. People just seem to be very 'jumpy' about Virgin potentially going under, probably because of the sorry tale of Ansett.
      But it wasn't all that long ago that Qantas got into so much trouble it went to the Government with a begging bowl and yet it's still alive and kicking today and doing OK.

      When Qantas posts losses or does badly people tend to just see it as part of the (often volatile) airline business, when Virgin does badly everyone starts talking about collapse.

    I never trust discount codes for a company whose baseline prices change every 5 seconds…

    •  

      Sounds like you might have trust issues in general then, welcome to the world of the entire airline industry.
      Airlines have very complex systems in-place to get bums on seats which will be shown with pricing fluctuations, which you should see if an airline is using proper algorithm software to determine the best outcome for seat sales.
      Seat pricing changes as certain seating allocations are exhausted. It's very interesting and it's a must for all airlines to survive.

        Maybe… maybe not? Almost every product/service operates on a supply/demand curve, very few need to change their prices as frequently as airlines, let alone intraday.

        I suppose I was more concerned with companies that use “all x 20% off”, when you can never know what the real baseline price is.

    I need better deals for economy flight. Got a stack of 12 lounge passes, but the damn things aren't transferable, and I'm not generally willing to pay for Virgin flights.

    Still overpriced and likely to drop further as most businesses have a no travel unless critical policy in effect… We should see business flights decline more as most executive teams are far too valuable to risk travelling in this climate.

    Mark my words, airfares (specifically business class) will drop further. Virgin is just trying to make smaller margins before dropping their pants further. They will have to.

    I flew cheaper to Asia on Virgin business last year.

    The code didn't bring up any cheap USA business flights for me. I reckon prices will come down further as people cut back flying.

  •  

    My work has instituted a “do not fly unless critical” policy.

    Fortunately for a Virgin, my workplace forces staff to fly Qantas.

  •  

    Virgin tries to position themselves as a "premium" airline like Qantas, and their prices reflects that. But given the same price, most people would fly Qantas over Virgin.

      I agree. Virgin isn't as good as QANTAS. I was looking at SYD-LHR in Dec and my choices are Virgin to LAX then VS to LHR or Singapore airlines direct. Singapore airlines was $500 to book on the virgin website than virgin itself. They are going to have issues unless they drop their prices

      •  

        Try going through a travel agent. They can always get a VA flight number on a Singapore operated flight for less.

        Their website has never been the best for international partner routings.

      Only applies domestically, for mine.

    I don't get my there prices are so high. Many of their flights are just a tarted up version of jetstar. I also also worried they might not make it. Ending the HK route, pretty much ended the connection with Europe (Via VS) and I'm not sure if they are going to make it through the current situation. I am also Gold with them and if their shareprice reflects the situation, I might have backed the wrong program. I hope Australia has a good protection program if they do close.

      Their share price has been like that for years! They have strong owners in the form of SIA and EY.

      Their business class is certainly up with Qantas. I regularly fly with them and I’d rather pay less and not have meals in economy. Their connections domestically are more reliable than Qantas (who feel like they can cancel a flight within a few hours notice).

      Ending the HK route was the correct thing to do. Their local partner was not doing well and with all the disruptions, who would want to fly through HK?? Ask Cathay how they’re doing!

      I'm only a red member and flew business class to Thailand using points only. Not sure if it's different for Europe though.
