I was able to get 3 in Upper Class on Virgin Atlantic in June, 2003 (2 originating in GSP, 1 in RIC) with the transatlantic flights the same flight from JFK-LHR and back. Wanted to spend an extra night in NYC on the way back and had no problem doing that. I think I booked the flights in either late 2002 or early 2003 BUT I was extremely flexible with my travel dates.

Best flying experience I've ever had, and that was in the "old" Virgin Upper Class and back in the day when you had to fly in coach domestically on a Virgin Upper Class award since it was regarded as "business" class. (Of course, I got around that somewhat by flying in a business-configured 763 ATL-JFK-ATL on those segments )

Edited to add: It was a SkySaver itinerary all the way!
