I think we’ve all just about had enough of Black Friday deals now. I’d be failing in my duty not to mention this one though.
Virgin Atlantic is offering a £925 return fare to Boston in Upper Class.
This is an exceptional Upper Class fare which, if you route it with a plane change in New York, will also let you try the new Upper Class Suite:
You can also route via Paris if you want to fly on Air France under a Virgin codeshare.
You can also fly on Delta if you want to give them a try.
Or, of course, fly on the direct Virgin Atlantic service to Boston with the older Upper Class seat.
Whichever way you route it, you will earn your Flying Club miles and status points.
(If you would prefer Air France-KLM Flying Blue miles and status points, you can also book these fares via the Air France website here where they will come with an Air France flight number.)
A weekend stay is required, best availability is February and March 2020. EDIT: Comments suggest you need to fly on a Monday or Thursday each way to see this price.
For example (click to enlarge):
You can book on the Virgin Atlantic site here. You may also want to double check the price via the Virgin Atlantic Flight & Hotel service here which may reduce it even more when you bundle in a hotel.
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.
