Unable to book multi sector

Trying to book Dublin – LHR – MIA outbound and MIA – LHR inbound as the taxes fees etc are pennies. Tried doing online & can’t do it,
No problem starting & finishing in Dublin
Phoned VA to try over the phone & they too, say it can’t be done
Any thoughts26th September 2023 at 10:09JDB 3,515 posts
This would usually be because the fares are non combinable, designed to try and prevent what you wish to do.26th September 2023 at 12:27memesweeper 1,117 posts
I’d book the return, go HBO, and drop the last leg. I’d think Virgin are unlikely to punish a consumer for doing that (but book direct, not via a travel agent, as the agent may be penalised).26th September 2023 at 13:00SteveR 40 posts
Hand baggage doesn’t work for 2 weeks in US28th September 2023 at 23:22AL 466 posts
If you have the fare basis code (the website can give that to you when you get through to the checkout, as can an agent), then I can look up the restrictions. But, I think that this is likely by design. I think you’d have better chance if VS had a way to get you to DUB that didn’t involve booking on another unaffiliated IATA member (i.e. EI or BA in this case). If you’re flexible, you might try ex-AMS/CDG for a KL/AF connection.28th September 2023 at 23:45davefl 956 posts
Hand baggage doesn’t work for 2 weeks in US
Consider shipping your luggage home. There’s a few companies that will pick up from you in the US and deliver home for less than £100.
