Thanks. That is my point. If Virgin point blank refuses to fly my 2 year old without me forking out another £700+ (for tax + extra virgin points), what is my next course of action?

Unfortunately, I don’t think you have any statutory rights in respect of having to pay for a child seat once Virgin start flying again which is their position. However, you are entitled to request a rerouting on another carrier around the time of your existing flights while your child is still an infant, so you need to decide whether to press them for this or if your position is actually that you would prefer to defer the trip, the child seat will be at your additional expense. Many have reported that Virgin has been quite good about this but mainly on US routes where they have more partner arrangements.
