Virgin Atlantic launches codeshare with Aeromexico

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

Virgin Atlantic has launched a codeshare deal to and around Mexico, in association with Aeromexico.

This is what it means to you:

You can book flights between Heathrow and Mexico City on virginatlantic.com – these will be Aeromexico flights carrying a VS flight number

You can fly beyond Mexico City to other domestic destinations on Aeromexico flights carrying a VS flight number

There will also be options to route via the United States.

There is no news yet on whether you will earn Virgin Flying Club miles and tier points on these flights, although it would be very surprising if you couldn’t.  Redemptions are also likely to be available.

Details of the Aeromexico codeshare are on this page of the Virgin Atlantic website.  As Aeromexico flights depart from Terminal 4, you won’t have the opportunity to visit the Virgin Clubhouse lounge in Terminal 3.

  1. O/T but fairly urgent

    My OH has Amex Platinum and I am a supplementary card holder. We are booked on a Sunday evening BA departure from LGW to MLE in Club World (using Avios and a two for one voucher). I paid the taxes and charges using my BA Amex.

    Can anybody confirm definitively whether I am covered by the Amex Platinum travel insurance for disruption etc, given that I didn’t book using that Amex Platinum card.

    Rob’s article on Amex Plat seems pretty clear to me that it only has to be any Amex you use to pay, not necessarily the Amex Plat, but the policy documents I’ve found all seem to talk about it being booked using “the Card” (i.e. the Amex Plat card). See for instance

    https://www.americanexpress.com/content/dam/amex/uk/staticassets/pdf/card-products/platinum-charge-card/UK_Platinum_Charge_Insurance_Documentation_v1_0.pdf

    Is anybody able to confirm definitely either way?

    Thanks in advance.

    • Look at the definition of “the card”.

      • Thanks Rob.

        “the Card” seems to be defined at Page 3 of the document within the body where it says

        “This Policy Summary contains some important facts about
        the insurance provided with The Platinum® Card from
        American Express (the “Card”).”

        Also at Page 3 it says:

        “The following benefits are dependent on use of the Card:
        • Cancelling, Postponing and Abandoning your Trip;
        • Cutting Short Your Trip;
        • Travel Inconvenience;
        • Personal Belongings, Money and Travel Documents;
        • Purchase Protection;
        • Refund Protection;”

        Am I looking in the wrong place? “the Card” doesn’t seem to be defined differently in the Definitions section, either.

        • It’s pretty clear in Definitions section…

          ““Card” means any card or other Account access device issued to a
          Cardmember (or a Supplementary Cardmember) for the purpose
          of accessing the Account.”

          and

          ““Account” or “Card Account” means your consumer and small
          business cards issued by American Express in the UK, excluding
          corporate cards and any American Express Cards issued by bank
          partners.”

          So your BA Amex is fine.
