Reward Flight Finder loses Virgin Flying Club access

Regular readers will know that I am a big fan of the tool.  It is, by far, the best way of searching for British Airways and Virgin Atlantic reward flight availability.

Even better, the site will email you when seats open up on flights you are targeting.  Even better, the service is free – although there is an option to pay £3 per month for more frequent checking.  Frankly, you should pay the £3 and do Tim Rogers, who runs the service, a favour.

Unfortunately, Reward Flight Finder has lost access to Virgin Atlantic flight data.  This has been done deliberately by the airline.

I have been trying to help Tim to get this fixed but, whilst there are many people in Virgin Atlantic who love the tool (and indeed use it themselves) it seems some of the IT people were determined to close off external access to their API data feed.

Reward Flight Finder will now revert to being a purely British Airways product, at least for the time being.
