Virgin America Travel Banks

    Does anyone know if you can still transfer VA travel banks? I used to purchase these to fly my employees in F class. I would set a limit, that I would pay no more than $0.55 on the $1, and had a lot of luck with this. It has been a few years since I’ve done it and now have a need to fly a bunch of employees on VA. Any help would be appreciated.

    Never heard of this before. Have you tried calling AS to see what the polices currently are?

    That is my next step. I saved thousands of dollars flying Virgin America F class.

    Would you mind elaborating?

    When a person or families would have to cancel a flight, for whatever reason, the airline would issue a credit, in the form of a “travel bank”. a lot of people couldn’t use these before these before they would expire, so I would pay no more than $0.55 on the dollar for their travel banks and would purchase F class out right. We would call the airline and have them transfer the credits to my account for spending. In the beginning you could transfer all or some of the credit, then they changed it to only all of the credit. I would look for large quantities on craigslist and would go through my set screening processes to ensure I wasn’t being scammed. It always worked out.

    Now however, I do not think they let you transfer them anymore. Also I guess scammers caught on and would…(should I not mention the scam process?)

    Anyways, it was great for me and my employees who got to travel F class regularly.
