Virgin Atlantic has opened the floodgates on Virgin Points reward availability between Manchester and Orlando.
This is, unfortunately, only available in November and December whilst children are still in school.
That said, there is a lot to do in Orlando if you don’t have school-aged children!
Take a look at this screenshot from SeatSpy, our preferred reward notification service.
It shows dates with FOUR Upper Class reward seats from Manchester to Orlando in November and December.
Data was correct as of 8pm on Wednesday night.
If you need fewer than four seats in Upper Class then you will have more dates to choose from.
There are also plenty of OUTBOUND dates with four seats in Premium, although return availability in Premium for four people is thin.
Outbound Premium / inbound Upper isn’t a bad compromise though, giving you a flat bed for the return trip. To book a mixed cabin trip you must search for Economy, which displays all cabins. Searches for Premium or Upper only show that cabin.
The seats are definitely there as you can see below:
This confirms that the cost for FOUR Upper Class return flights from Manchester to Orlando is 380,000 Virgin Points plus an impressive £3,850 in taxes and charges.
You can obviously reduce the points element if you have a Virgin Atlantic credit card 2-4-1 or upgrade voucher to use.
How to earn Virgin Points from UK credit cards (September 2023)
As a reminder, there are various ways of earning Virgin Points from UK credit cards. Many cards also have generous sign-up bonuses.
