Until Monday, Virgin Atlantic is offering £20 off economy flights to San Francisco, Las Vegas and Los Angeles. You must use the code ‘WESTC’ when performing an ‘advanced search’ on the Virgin home page.
The code applies to Economy Light, Economy Delight and Economy Classic fares. There appear to be no blackout dates, so you should be able to book any flights that suit you.
Given the bargain basement fares currently being offered by Virgin to some of these destinations £20 off is not bad, although it is economy of course ….
We strongly recommend Economy Delight (we reviewed Economy Delight here) because the huge number of additional Flying Club miles you earn basically pays for the upgrade as we explain here.
