Virgin Australia not currently honouring the musician baggage allowance

PSA for our members: We've received confirmation that Virgin Australia is not currently honouring the musician baggage allowance upgrade previously offered to our members.

Members wishing to claim the Virgin baggage upgrade will receive the following email:

Thank you for your email. With Virgin Australia constantly reviewing and adjusting our schedule due to the travel restrictions placed by the respective Federal and State Governments due to COVID-19, it does require us to review some of the current allowances that we offer to support the industry. Regretfully, due to the current situation with COVID-19 and the increase in demand for cargo and baggage to assist affected travellers we cannot extend the additional baggage allowance at this moment.

We will regularly review this and do anticipate to offer this allowance in the future.

Thank you for your understanding.

Virgin Australia
