A typical rip off frequent flyer program. 80,000 miles to my account, wanted to BUY a full price business class ticket and a companion ticket for 60th birthday trip. As happens EVERY time with this air line, no companion tickets, no upgrades to business class for the entire month and then some. I doubt whether ANYONE can travel business class, anywhere with VA Flying Club. Total rip off especially as they encourage you to buy more of their useless air miles every time you contact them. I would almost go as far to say their sale is a fraud as you can buy them and never spend them.
