More points by joining Etihad ?

Hi

I'm a member of Virgin Velocity (domestic programme within Australia).

I will be flying Sydney-London business class on Etihad.

Will I be better off joining Etihad or will I receive the same amount of points by showing my Virgin Velocity card upon check-in ?

I would not worry about getting a few more points by joining EY. Better to collect points where you get the most benefit and perhaps aiming for a gold status. You should be able to check on either website about points credit.

Thanks Nomadic.

At the moment I hardly have any points with Virgin Australia.

And I haven't bothered collecting points for any past overseas trips.

I should start collecting with one airline/group as you suggested.
