Virgin offering £1,000 Upper Class flights from Manchester to Boston

Virgin Atlantic has launched some aggressive Upper Class fares from Manchester to Boston this summer.

How aggressive?  We’re talking ‘£999.62 return’ aggressive.

If you are looking to earn some Virgin tier points cheaply or simply want to fly to the US in style – and US fares in economy are not exactly dirt cheap in summer – this is well worth a look.  Even if you are London based, the train trip up to Manchester is not too painful.

The £999.62 price is widely available as long as you look at least 4 months ahead, although you certainly need to be flexible with your dates.  It is easy to find relevant dates because the Virgin website lets you search for the cheapest combination of dates over a 1 week or 5 week period.

The fare rules for the £999 fare are:

Book 120 days in advance

Stay at least 3 days

Book by 7th February

No limo transfers included

Fare also valid on Delta where Delta flies the route – apparently it prices via JFK too with a connection to Boston on Delta although I did not see this

The best thing to do if you’re interested is visit the Virgin website and check out potential dates using the ‘one week’ or ‘five week’ view modes.  Thanks to Barnaby for this.

    Looking for the Virgin fares to Boston in Upper Class, can’t find any under £1,000 return. I was looking beginning of July. Virgin tell me the fares start from £1399! Any suggestions?
