Virgin Atlantic sale starts
The Virgin Atlantic sale I referenced a few days ago has now started with the following savings:
- up to £100 in Upper Class cabin
- up to £50 in premium economy cabin
- up to £50 in economy cabin
There is also a separate sale offer with apparently up to £2900 off Upper Class on certain routes! Having looked at the fares, I can only imagine how eyewatering they must have been before!
This only applies to the following routes:
Most of these routes are what I would call a standard £2300-2600 price. The only decent prices I have found are:
- New York £1866
- Boston £1882
The cheapest dates are January to March 2024.
You must book between 24th August – 15th September 2023.
Bonus points on flights
Members will receive bonus Virgin Points for Virgin Atlantic flights booked between 24 August and 4 September 2023, for travel between 1 September 2023 and 31 May 2024. The bonuses in the higher cabins are pretty substantial, so I think this is a great opportunity to book something in the sale if you can find a price that works for you. I have always enjoyed the onboard service and I particularly liked the new A330 seats, especially the spacious Retreat Suite at the front, which you can get for around £250 extra.
For Virgin Atlantic return flights booked during this time, members will receive:
- 5,000 Virgin Points bonus in Economy (only economy Classic and Delight)
- 10,000 Virgin Points bonus in Premium
- 20,000 Virgin Points bonus in Upper Class
If you book a one-way flight, you will receive half the bonus points. Obviously, if you have status, you will get even more points as Silver and Gold tier members earn 30% and 60% more Virgin Points on flights, respectively.
