Virgin Atlantic reward seat sale now on!

Since I have had numerous emails asking about this recently, I thought this was worth an extra article.

A full analysis will follow tomorrow.

Virgin Atlantic has launched its semi-regular Reward Seat Sale.

Economy and Premium Economy routes are reduced by 30%.

New York, for example, is just 24500 miles return instead of 35000.

Virgin Atlantic

No discount on taxes or Upper Class, however.

You can book as far in advance as you want.

At the time of writing there is no branding on the website but the fares are already reduced.  Pop over to the Virgin website and take a look.

Remember that transfers of American Express Membership Rewards points to Virgin are INSTANTANEOUS as long as the accounts are already linked.  You will also get a 20% bonus on Tesco Clubcard conversions at the moment as I explained here.

  1. I’m puzzled by APD tax for children. Going from US->UK it’s $134.60 for an adult. But $156.90 per person for one adult and one child (2-11yo). Is this to prevent children from entering the UK?

    I thought air tax was axed for children back in 2014.

    • surely APD is only charged on flights out of UK?

    • Apparently these are carrier imposed fees, not ADP. I am surprised that the CIF are still higher departing with kids from the US ->UK.

  2. Availability looks pretty poor – particularly from Glasgow, which I took last year.
