Virgin Atlantic is running an absolutely fantastic promotion, offering a 40% discount on the amount of miles needed for flights between Miami and London (in either direction). Economy flights start at just 7,500 miles one way, Premium Economy for 13,500 and Upper Class for just 28,500. And there are so many ways to instantly create Virgin Atlantic Points!

If you’re looking for a last minute excursion, this is about as good as it gets. For travel before March 14th, Virgin Atlantic have slashed the number of miles needed in all cabins. Full taxes and surcharges will be added, which makes economy only worthwhile from the US to UK side, but for all other cabins, this is a phenomenal deal in either direction. You can depart from Miami or London – and one way tickets are a-ok.

You can instantly create Virgin Atlantic Flying Club miles from Citi Points, Amex Points, Chase Points, SPG Points – or of course by flying Virgin Atlantic. Once the points are in your account, you can search for availability on the Virgin Atlantic website and book one of these top notch deals.

Simply check out the dedicated sale page. From there, you can book your super discounted seat online. This deal is available for travel until March 14th, but we think availability using points will sell out far beforehand. So get moving! Enjoy. Here’s our review of Virgin Atlantic Upper Class, and of course – their world class Heathrow Clubhouse Lounge.

    1. This is a purely personal decision, in our opinion. For some people it changes the way they see it. For others, who have no choice because they either collect Virgin or BA points and are pretty much guaranteed surcharges – they are getting an opportunity to use points at rates lower than they’ve ever been. Taxes are the same as always.

  1. I get 25,000 plus $475. Even if I could find a 15,000 plus $475 RT I wouldn’t consider it a bargain.

    Both Virgin and BA miles are worth more on partners with low fees. BA is also good on London-Europe and Virgin is good on Delta, Hawaiian, or Virgin one-way to London.
