Virgin- Orlando

Hi all. New to virgin flying club here. Moved over due to the credit card which has a good earning rate. Just a few questions if someone can help please:

1) to take family abroad do you need to have a household account like BA?

2) what are the chances of getting 3 upper class seats tofgethr to Orlando in peak time. (With notice)

Three UC seats to Orlando in school holiday time? I'd buy a lottery ticket while you are out riding your unicorn!

Thanks I Thought that might be the case. How about just before or after. Wife is part time teacher so can go from Wednesday night.

You don't need a house hold account with Virgin to book flights for other people. In fact only golds can have one.

You don't even need one with BA to book for you and your family members.

not easy but Iíve done it a few times. Flexibility is key, as is booking well in advance. If you can go indirect then this opens up lots more options, as does flights to Miami rather than Orlando, or looking at Manchester & Glasgow in addition to Gatwick

Itís tough anytime. Around holidays, even more so.
HHA not necessary (nor is it on BA).

You can try routing via JFK or Atlanta if you are struggling to find direct options. You'll likely find much much more availability.
