What’s the rate for business class using Virgin?

my08701

not familiar with VirginAtlantic. I tried one of the dates and got an error “sorry we are not able to process your request.. do I have to be logged in, do I need points in the account to search?

Zack

If there’s no award availability on that date it’ll just give you that message

Adam

I apologize if the answer is obvious, but would this be bookable through the Chase points site or do you need to purchase through the Delta or VA websites directly?

Yochai

Delta/Virgin

M

Whats vs award change/ cancel policy

Shomer shabbos

Thanks for posting these.
May I suggest, some of these flight are not possible for shomer shabbos people.
How about separating those flights.
For instance in January from nyc only one of the flights are possible and from tlv non of them are possible.

LYF

the boston deals are on shabbos?

D

Let’s see some business seats Delta!!

sam

How to I book without the surcharge?

Jake

Isnt there also a Virgin Atlantic Mastercard? Transferring from Chase points seems like a huge waste.

Jonathan Shapiro

Flights come up at 27k each way but +$542
Am I doing something wrong?

Zack

only direct flights won’t have surcharge

my08701

I was trying from EWR to TLV, I selected nearby airports and JFK came up with stopovers. I do not see anything for Delta or anything direct for Nov, Dec, Jan…

Zack

Jan 28 Motzei Shabbos for 35k +$5.60 Delta direct

Yakov

It looks like virgin removed the search calendar and you only seven days at a time without being able to go the next seven.

Zack

Search using flexible dates then change the url from dates to calendar then toggle the fliter to direct

Yakov

I removed the words flexible dates and entered the word calendar and it went back to the search button.

Zack

Just change the word “dates” to “calendar”

Malky

I just transferred 108,000 Amex points to a brand new Virgin Atlantic account – which got me 140,400 Virgin Atlantic points with this September bonus. Trying to book these tickets for my husband and I and I am getting error after error. I tried it on iPad – Safari and Chrome, as well as iPhone and a laptop. What am I doing wrong?

Ruth

Hi! trying to book but in addition to points its $1000 why?

Avi

Not working On delta is 130k on Virgin 37k + $423
Any suggestions

My08701

I tried multiple dates / one way and round trip including
JFK to Tel Aviv valid dates:

February 5,
March 6, nothing direct came up, neither did Delta. I must be missing something..

Zack

Ding, ding, ding, we got a winner 🙂 I don’t know how people find anything on Virgin Atlantic, that is one ticket, one way and I tried multiple dates, scenario’s.. how did you find it?
