Hopefully Virgin do something a bit more exciting like last year for the actual day, but in the meantime, there is Black Friday week sale.
You can save up to £200 on return flights from 22nd Nov 00:00 to 29th Nov 23:59.
LATAM has been doing some great prices to South America recently from Europe as well as the UK. Sadly they are no longer part of oneworld but they do have some good new business class seats on certain aircraft.
Their Black Friday sale is from November 22nd until November 29th and offers up to 20% discount.

Amazon has already started their Black Friday week. If you are after luggage or travel accessories it is worth a look as there are quite a few discounts.
This is the Samsonite Prodigy Spinner carry-on case I had been using until recently. It’s great for keeping things handy in the front pocket like a laptop and super lightweight. However, it’s not that durable in my experience so better for a leisure traveller.
It costs £149.25 down from £179. For £169 you can get the same case that’s expandable which I am tempted by. It also comes in black or red as well.
If you are looking for something bigger but very lightweight, I love the Samsonite Lite-Shock – Spinner Large Suitcase, 75 cm, particularly in the petrol blue colour (I really need help for my suitcase addiction as now I want this colour too!). I have had mine for around 4 years and despite lots of use, it’s still in great condition. It’s super light and also the shell seems to expand to take an awful lot more than a traditional hard-sided case as it has flexibility. There’s also a 10 year guarantee and a built-in TSA lock (for US security to search a locked case) .
It’s a great deal at the moment at £239.40, a saving of £135.60 (36%).
My favourite travel accessory, the packing cube, has some options in the sale. These ones look super smart and I like the laundry pouches as you can separate your dirty and clean in the same cube. They come in 5 colours but the black and pink ones are on sale for £10.19.
If you are after some earbuds, Sennheiser’s MOMENTUM True Wireless 2, Bluetooth Earbuds with Active Noise Cancellation have £100 off bringing them down to £179. With a 7-hour battery life that can be extended up to 28 hours with the charging case, they’d be great for travel.
If you prefer headphones, my current Bose QuietComfort 35 II Noise Cancelling Bluetooth Headphones – Wireless, Over-Ear Headphones with Built-in Microphone and Alexa Voice Control have £20 off, bringing them down to £164.99.
We previously have reviewed the Sony WH-1000XM3 Noise Cancelling Wireless Headphones with Mic, 30 Hours Battery Life, Quick Charge, Gesture Control, Ambient Sound Mode, with Alexa Built-in which many rate over the Bose ones including Paul. These are also on offer at £159.99 which is £40. You can read Paul’s opinion on them here.
