Exciting news as Virgin Atlantic launches its Guaranteed Availability initiative, ensuring reward seat availability across all cabins.
Virgin Atlantic has launched its Guaranteed Availability initiative, ensuring reward seat availability across all cabins.
The new initiative, which took effect June 29th, guarantees a minimum of 12 reward seats on every flight that can be booked with Virgin Points and includes:
- 8 seats in Economy
- 2 seats in Premium Economy
- 2 seats in Upper Class
To book a flight using Virgin Points, choose ‘Show price in points’ in the advanced search, enter your dates and destination and away you go!
If the reward seats have already been reserved for that particular flight, you can still use your points for partial payment on a normal seat, with Points Plus Money from as little as 3000 points. If you’re flexible on your flights, it’s also worth checking back, as more seats can be released closer to travel.
The airline has also unveiled an additional benefit for Gold Card members, who can now turn any seat into a reward seat by using double Virgin Points. This is possible even if there is no reward seat available on your desired dates. Members can call the dedicated Gold Card booking line to secure your desired seat up to 60 days prior to departure.
For Andrew, travel is so much more than just learning history or taking photos. Rather, the value of travel is witnessing a lifestyle, bonding with locals, and gaining rich cultural experiences. That’s why he founded the Luxury Wanderer; a place to share itineraries, offer advice, swap stories, and foster a like-minded community of curious travellers.
