    Can you transfer points from anywhere directly into Virgin American?

    I called virgin Atlantic and they can't see the availability that VA has? Any way around this?

    AmEx MR points can move over at a 2:1 ratio. Also, Elevate points redeem on a dollar-value basis so a more expensive ticket/flight will cost more points. Keep that in mind. Also keep in mind that you can do pay with points using AmEx MR points and the price value on the redemptions is such that you're not saving much to transfer to Elevate before redeeming. The rules on the fare will also be different depending on whether it is an award or revenue which is then paid with AmEx points.
