You're kidding me, right? That would just be cruel...

Now I'm tempted...
The only problem I can forsee is if there's only one flight & the system will see that AsherO is already confirmed in economy.
Just make sure the fare rules allow refunds after check in too. (Not sure about VA's policy)

I would make sure not to book the 2nd ticket on the same flight

Best is a different carrier so you don't have a hard time with the check-in
BTW I heard in LHR if you 'miss' your flight you leave the airport without going through customs. (Duty-free & all)

Been in 3/5. The QF lounges in MEL and SYD are nothing special, at least the business lounges. Showers look in a derelict condition, with horrible water pressure.
Definitely thumbs up for FCL in BKK, FRA and HKG.

Business lounges are obviously not going to top the list.
QF lounges referred to here are the First Class Lounges and happen to be up there with the best.

Any way to 'sneak' into the LHR ClubHouse for free/cheap when flying VS Economy? I'd love to check it out.

Would this status be recognized by Virgin Australia as well?
