    Yeah I've booked mine too. The virgin atlantic pricing model has been weird this year. Normally there's a bit of a drop around christmas/new year in a "sale" but this year the prices seemed horrendous before christmas, everyone was saying how they were thousands more. Then Christmas/new year arrived and they've gone down to last year or better pricing.

    I got UC prices with no miles used for just a little more than premium economy prices last year.

    I don't know if the prices will go back up to stupid level or what, will be interesting to see.

    I'm frightened to look in case they have gone down further!

    I think Virgin should do something like "guaranteed lowest price" for regular flyers where they guarantee that if you book as soon as you can, if the price goes down, you'll get a refund. That way we wouldnt have to keep refreshing and worrying plus they'd get people booking as soon as possible

    Totally agree with that Keith

    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    I'm with you on that one! It's crazy how much movement there is on airfares and how little protection the traveller has. It wouldn't be allowed in any other industry.

    Imagine buying something at John Lewis and it going on sale a week later. You'd be outraged if they wouldn't refund the difference! I think it's all due to lack of a returns policy with flight bookings.

    It also bugs me that if you use Virgin Atlantic's sponsored credit card, you have to pay a credit card fee for using it. I think it should be free for VA card members.
