Ok so later in the year will be looking at flights for next November and December 2009.
I have lots of Virgin miles but to be honest they seem a waste but would like to try to use them. Even just to stop dh saying i told you so.
So we want the best price possible. I am also quite intrested in flying with BA.
Now to get the cheapest and best deals possible i want to book as soon as flights come on sale. The problem being we want to fly out around 18 November 2009 and back around 9th December 2009 so in theory need to book January 09. We will be flexible as will not book villa until flights are booked. We want to be there at least a week before the 1st of December for dd 18th birthday.
Do you think it might be worth looking at booking one way with Virgin using miles and then BA will just money. We would then be able to book are outbound flight as soon as they go on sale.
I will need to book UC or buisness class seats for dd and myself. The rest of the clan will be in economy.
Also i know with Virgin dd can stay in reclined for take off and then go flat, can you do this with BA as well.
Sorry lots of questions but need to get best price and best way to travel for dd.
Why Ba i am sure you are going to ask. Well they seem cheaper and they also do not have the screen between the seats. I would rather this on return flight so i can keep good eye on dd without having to stand up every 5 minutes.
