SeatSpy is a useful new tool for finding British Airways and Virgin Atlantic flights, using your miles. While I use SeatSpy exclusively for British Airways, if you’re a Virgin Atlantic flyer, and you have reward points, SeatSpy will accommodate those too.

When you arrive on the landing page, you have the option of looking for British Airways or Virgin Atlantic flights. After inputting the details of your inquiry, an entire calendar year of dates will display, colour coded for each cabin. You can search by route, number of seats and so forth.
You won’t be given any information as to which flights are available on specific dates, however you can take the information, plug it into the British Airways Executive Club or the Virgin Atlantic website, knowing that the first date you search will return positive availability. It saves you the hassle of searching and I find it very useful.
Like Reward Flight Finder which is another great tool, SeatSpy is another helpful tool for sorting through dates where travel is possible.
Only mainline Virgin and British Airways routes are displayed so don’t expect any flights by oneworld or Star Alliance partners to show up in your search. SeatSpy’s nearly perfect if you want to fly on British Airways or Virgin Atlantic aircraft, but it won’t get you very far if you’re hoping to cash in on points on an airline other than the two.
SeatSpy basic is currently free, and there are first class and premium paid subscriptions that offer text alerts when there’s availability for your chosen dates.
For me it’s the most accurate and quick way to find British Airways reward flights. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
