All participating destinations are just £1,007 per person return.

    Interesting. I have Virgin reward flights booked for Vegas during this period. If I can find availability on BA does anyone know if I can cancel Virgin without penalty. Thanks.

    • Raffles says:

      You pay a small fee but you will get the miles and the rest of the cash back.

    • Clive J says:

      I can answer this myself now. Found availability with BA for the dates I needed (and got an extra day in Vegas) with BA at £1,002. Real easy experience in cancelling the Virgin reward flights through chat function. Got all my Flying Club miles back but forfeited the YQ fees around £300. Great deal, and shows how valuable this site is. Thanks Raffles.

  • Rohan says:

    Damn ! I have already booked
    Travel a week ago on similar dates to mumbai . And paid a lot lot more
    . Presumably there is nothing I can do . This is rubbish !

  • Ed says:

    Cancelled redemption to MEX using 241, rebooked on same dates in the sale – thanks Raffles!

  • Jason says:

    NYE on Copacabana Beach, here I come. Crazy prices. Was odd seeing Club cheaper than WT and WT+!

    • Mikee says:

      Jason, you will have a blast! Did the same with my girlfriend last year in the BA Sale and it was amazing.
