News in brief:
2,400 Avios with £50 worth of toys
Tesco Direct is offering 1,000 Clubcard points when spending £50 on Nerf, My Little Pony, Play Doh and Hasbro Gaming this week. This means you get the equivalent of 2,400 Avios or 2,500 Virgin Flying Club miles for £50 plus a pile of toys.
Virgin Atlantic is gearing up to launch the only direct route from Heathrow to Barbados.
From 12th December (just in time to escape the English Winter) Virgin Atlantic will fly to Barbados on Tuesdays and Saturdays. The service will use an Airbus A330 with 33 Upper Class, 48 Premium Economy and 185 Economy seats.
Currently the airline is operating to Barbados from Manchester and Gatwick. British Airways only flies the route from Gatwick. With the added Heathrow route, Virgin Atlantic will be offering 11 flights to Barbados per week – and passengers on the new route will able to check out the excellent Heathrow Clubhouse lounge we reviewed here.
Tickets are on sale from Monday 27th February and can be booked on the Virgin Atlantic website.
