Virgin Atlantic Premium Economy offers a wider and more spacious seat, two checked bags, priority boarding and extra miles. If you can find a travel buddy, you can take advantage of crazy good £678 round trip Premium Economy flights direct from London to Safari land, aka Johannesburg, South Africa.

Virgin Atlantic is offering two for one offers, which are really lower than any price you’d ever pay for one! For £678 per person, you can fly direct on a Boeing 787 Dreamliner in Virgin’s best premium economy seat. That kinda comfort comes in handy on a 10 hour flight, and the extra baggage allowance should have you covered if an elephant eats your clothes. You never know. Johannesburg is the perfect place to start a safari, or grab a connecting flight to Cape Town. If you search for one person, you won’t find these flight deals.
