Dannii Minogue was the special guest speaker today at a media briefing about Virgin Australia’s new Velocity Frequent Flyer program at the Cara & Co store in Westfield Sydney. The launch was also about Virgin’s new partnership with Westfield’s online shopping mall, and after addresses from Velocity Frequent Flyer and Westfield’s reps, Dannii took to the podium to speak about how much she endorsed the program. Here’s some of what Dannii said:
On how much she travels: “I do travel a lot. When you know cabin crew by name, you know you’re travelling a lot. When they go to give you the menu and they take it away and go, ‘I know what you want to eat,’ you’re travelling too much. And that’s me.”

On her relationship with Virgin: “My connection to Virgin Australia started with Virgin Airways in the UK, and I was trying to work out last night how long I’ve been flying with them, and it’s 18-plus years. I won’t add on any of the other plus years, but it’s more than 18 years. All the crew knew me by name, and I knew all of them by name. And also the alliance you have with Etihad — I’ve been flying with them since they started their direct route from London to Melbourne. I live in Melbourne, I work in London. Stupid idea. Don’t anybody do that!”
On her history with Westfield: “I remember, as a kid, shopping in Westfield, but also being on Young Talent Time, we also did performances in Westfield!”
On Kris Smith’s shopping habits: “Out of my family, Kris is the biggest shopper out of the two of us. His theory is that when there’s a sale on, ‘the more you spend the more you save’!”
