    You could always try ringing Virgin with your airmiles number and see if they can help. I've always found them really helpful on the phone, they seem to go out of their way to help you. I don't bother with trying to book on line and always ring.

    yeah I agree with that, they are very helpful on the phone :yes:

    Generally there are a few ways to use miles.. you can use them for a discount (mile+money), you can use them to pay to upgrade a class ( in which case you pay miles and then there'll probably be cash needed for the extra tax) or you use enough to buy a seat (and again probably pay the taxes out of pocket).

    It can be hard to work out which one offers the best value when you consider that you can also purchase miles if you're short of the total needed so you have to work out if its cheaper to buy extra miles or just use money or what
