(EDIT: all prizes have now been claimed, so don’t waste any time searching!)

Here’s something slightly silly to finish off the year.  Whether this is actually a good piece of marketing of not I honestly don’t know.

Virgin Atlantic has added 10 £1 Premium flights (its new name for Premium Economy) into its flight search system.  However, these are totally random flights.  We don’t know the dates or the destinations, so your chance of finding one is not huge.

Slightly churlishly, Virgin Atlantic won’t pay your taxes and charges if you win.   The prizes cost “£1 plus taxes, fees, charges and carrier imposed surcharges”.  You can read the full rules here.

  1. The tweeted earlier that they were all sold out!

  2. I believe that this only works if you put it on a U.S. $ card, not a UK £ card, which does not accept $ top ups. However, the good news is that you are able to still then use it in the UK, but you will accumulate rewards then on your US card not a UK one. However, a U.S. card does have a much lower threshold to reach gold level, and free refills, than a UK one.
