Virgin Atlantic has launched a batch of economy deals, running until 17th April.

These mainly cover the Winter period although travel dates vary by route.  Headline prices are:

  • Boston £312
  • New York £312
  • Miami £373
  • Orlando £389
  • Las Vegas £397
  • Los Angeles £399

Full details are on this page of the Virgin Atlantic site.

To maximise your miles when paying, your best bet is one of the two Virgin Atlantic Reward credit cards.  These earn double miles (3 per £1 on the paid card or 1.5 per £1 on the free card) when you book at virginatlantic.com or via Virgin Holidays.  Another option is American Express Preferred Rewards Gold which offers double points – 2 per £1 – when you book flight tickets directly with an airline.
