Virgin does charge hefty fuel surcharges, but there are workarounds to lower than, such as booking 2 one-ways instead of a round-trip as is pointed out below.

Surcharges are much lower for flights originating in Israel, making for some real bargains for one-way or round-trip departures from there!

Those who brought Chase points with an additional 30%, can now actually get another 33%?

JAY

Why not?

eli

link to book is coming out fuzzy

sol

I tried to transfer from Cap1. There seems to be 2 types of accounts, Virgin Red and Virgin Atlantic. Cap1 only transfers to Virgin Red and I can’t seem to get my VA account to link.

aa

you need to login to virgin red to get your virgin red id (under profile) – it is a combination of 4 short words. Then put that in where it asks for user id. Points will show on your virgin atlantic account as well.
