    That Galactic Status is a superb idea!

    As someone who flies VX only occasionally (and will never reach one of these levels), but appreciates the ability to buy up to F, the ability for others to buy up well before me turns me off from VX. That being said, I think it is a good move for the airline, the added business they can drive from their best customers and business customers in general will likely out weigh any negative impact from the odd traveler like me.

    Any word on whether Virgin Atlantic status will be honored on VX (and the other way around)? Virgin Atlantic also has similar silver and gold tiers, with more expensive tickets netting your more tier points (although they are fixed by class of cabin and fare bucket and not directly proportional to what the ticket cost).
