Torsten had this card before and can only report positive things. In the old days the best redemption was the transfer to Hilton but this is now history.

The best redemptions are on partners without a fuel surcharge. Virgin Atlantic is rather secretive about how many miles are needed for partners and what fuel surcharges are needed.

Booking on partners seems a rather excruciating experience.

-LAX-MEL on Virgin Australia, no fuel surcharges, 47,000 miles one-way in business class

– JFK-VCE-JFK on Delta, no fuel surcharges, 100,000 miles in busines class

– MEL-ADL on Virgin Australia

So be prepared for a tough process and try using miles on Virgin America, Delta or Virgin Australia to avoid the huge fuel surcharges.
