Question MR (USA) 30% transfer bonus to Virgin Atlantic Flying Club (VS) until 12.28.2019.

I have a transfer bonus in my account for 30% more miles when transferring MR to Virgin Atlantic. Ends 12/28. Not sure if targeted or not.

Seems there is a VS Flying club transfer bonus of 30% now
I think it is until the end of the year.

As a DP I transferred MR to Virgin with the 30% bonus miles the other day and they were available immediately for a booking.

In theory this is a good way to book Delta One, but when does delta actually release any decent availability?

I checked transcontinental routes T -331 and nothing shows, even economy. I check randomly throughout months and that doesn’t seem to work. Anyone actually book Delta routes with Virgin?

I've booked the best deal on the block for a client, 45k points ATL to EZE direct in Delta One, also plenty of availability USA to NE Asia for 60k points including deltas new suite for 60k LAX to shanghai.

Actually I was listening to a podcast about that, since Delta charges such a ridiculously high price for their delta one seats it leaves more availability open to partners, and in many cases delta doesn't necessarily have to be charging the absolute lowest rate for a partner to be able to book it too.

I haven't look very much at transcon or trans-atlantic flight i'd presume less availability since those routes fill in easy with cash customers, but i'm sure there has to be some availability. Also make sure you're only looking for the "main leg" so if you have a layover don't look that up you'll need to book it as seperate segment to the hub.

Also call Virgin, wait times are always under 5 minutes and the agents are super knowledgeable and helpful. Also certain routes can't be booked on the portal have to call (such as the aformentioned 45k deal from ATL to buenos aires)

PS ya'll don't forget about ANA! Virgin points great way to try their new first and biz suites from NYC to Tokyo on their triple 7 300-er
