    Wow, very cool, if I didn't already have Hilton Diamond (and Delta lounge access...) I would move in with my family that's outside of Sydney.

    Ahem... So...if I "move" from my "home" in New Zealand to my "new home" in Tasmania, do you think they'd really validate it in any way?

    Oh yes -- the special branch of the Virgin Australia police force will personally visit your "new home" to verify:

    That settles it. I'm moving in and out of Australia weekly.

    I posted about the status match on MP but missed the HH benefit. Thanks to the OP for bringing it up.

    How does this work as HH follows the calendar year basis? If I apply after 4 stays say in Oct, when will my HH Diamond membership runs out? If 31 Dec 2012, then I would have more than 1 year benefit.

    Well no one knows yet but what I am doing is to wait for next year before I apply for my HH Gold (I got comped VA Gold from BD/AF Gold) as HH seems to work on calendar years anyway.

    The Virgin Australia website shows that the same offer is available for IHG Priority Club.

    Right, but Priority Club Platinum isn't especially meaningful ;)

    The VA Platinum Hilton Diamond offer has me hooked!
    I am really enjoying the love shown to me by Hiltons in Australia and NZ and have now moved a lot of my IHG stays to Hilton. Love the free executive lounge, brekkie and internet. :D

    I'm enjoying it too. Hilton's in the UK (mostly) aren't as expensive as they are in Australia, so I got my four stays easily enough. I love the free breakfast, free lounge, free internet, bonus points, and double dip earnings. Thank you, VA!
