Virgin Atlantic 25% off economy award redemptions



Virgin Atlantic is having a sale where you can fly to/from many locations to and from the UK for 25% less miles in economy. This offer is available between January 13th and January 27th.

A one way flight from the US to Europe can be as little as 13,125 miles. Keep in mind that flying from the UK to the US would incur high fuel surcharges so using a different program for this leg of the trip is recommended. There are also many other routes from Africa, Asia, Australia and the Middle East. Availability seems to be pretty good at the moment.

You can transfer Amex Membership Rewards points to Virgin Atlantic Flying Club’s program at a ratio of 1 to 1 in order to top off your account if needed.

  1. I was just planning a trip to London so this will be handy. I will need to create an account with them and transfer some Amex points. Hopefully they clear quick enough. Which program do you recommend to fly back with?
