Today is the last chance to book the current Virgin Atlantic Upper Class flash sale.
You must book seven days in advance of travel and fly out, at the latest, by 30th September. 10th October is your last day to fly home. A Saturday night stay is required.
Upper Class deals to the East Coast include:
New York £1,486 (this includes the new A350 service which launches on 10th September on the 13.30 Heathrow service, excluding Thursdays)
Las Vegas £1,503
Other destinations are included but are pricier. Our full article is here. Virgin’s pages describing Upper Class are here and the Heathrow Clubhouse is outlined here. You can book on the Virgin Atlantic site here.
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.
