Looking at the Upper Class deals, there are some interesting prices available.

The standout deal looks like Johannesburg at £1,799.  This is available until 30th June, as long as you book 14 days in advance.

Upper Class prices out of London include:

These prices are for travel between 8th – 22nd April 2019; 1st July – 31st August 2019 and 21st – 28th November 2019.

Orlando costs £2,476 when the outbound flight is between 24th December 2018 – 29th March 2019 and the inbound flight is between 7th January 2019 – 6th April 2019.

There are also some decent Premium Economy deals out there which will be especially interesting for anyone chasing Virgin Flying Club tier points without paying for Upper Class.  Destinations from London include:

  • New York £782
  • Boston £724
  • Washington £782
  • Miami £783
  • Los Angeles £795
  • Las Vegas £770
  • Shanghai £754
  • Barbados £689

Economy deals are also available, starting at £279 for Miami (from London) and for Boston and New York (from London or Manchester).

Package deals are available from £379 (three nights in New York or Boston with flights in Economy).  A potentially great deal is a seven night flight and hotel package in Barbados from £499.  More ‘flight and hotel’ deals can be found on Virgin’s dedicated packages site.

Here is our review of Virgin’s new Economy Delight product, launched earlier this year, and this is why the maths says you should book it.

Travel dates and full details of what is available can be found on the Virgin Atlantic sale website here.

You need to book by 31st January 2019 at the latest, but there is limited availability and it is worth jumping in now if you want to secure key dates.

    My notification of the sale came from the Flying Club!
    Here’s the waffle I got the last time I tried to get a response:-

    Hello Lawrence.

    Thank you for your reply.

    Sadly Oli is not able to be contacted by members of the Flying Club programme, so we would not be able to give you his email address, or forward on your email. But please be assured all our great fares will be detailed online, and any one of the Customer Service team, will be more than happy to help you book a new ticket.

    Thank you for contacting Virgin Atlantic.

    Kind regards
