Qantas & Virgin Blue seating and lounges...

It is endless, the number of travel updates that come into our office daily, these two I thought were of interest....
Qantas have advised that taking effect on 13 April is Qantas Advance Seat Selection. This means that you will have to pay $20 for your seating request unless... you are a First, Business or Premium Economy passenger or if flying Economy and you are a Platinum, Gold or Silver Qantas Frequent Flyer.  If flying domestically seating selection will remain complimentary.
Virgin Blue have announced their Brisbane and Melbourne lounges are being refurbished and will be closed.  Casual entry into the lounges will not be available, temporary lounges will be operating on reduced capacity with limited facilities. 
The Melbourne lounge will close 9 April for several weeks and temporary. 
So, you've been warned, you can now be prepared if you thought you'd sit and relax in the Melbourne lounge...I'm sure the outcome will be fab.
Happy travelling...
