Virgin Atlantic is due to launch a flash sale at 9am today.
On the usual Virgin Atlantic website flights in Premium and Upper Class can be booked for £50 off. There is no special code needed.
Lead prices in Premium are:
London to Las Vegas from £668
London to New York from £632 (November)
London to Orlando from £777
Flights must be booked between 9am today and midnight tomorrow (Tuesday) for travel between 28th October and 11th December or 24th December and 29th March 2019. Obviously £50 doesn’t move the needle much on Upper Class tickets but £50 off Premium is worth a look.
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.
