Virgin Atlantic Flights

The first three days gives your Flying Club Miles a value of more than 5 cents per point while the end of the week gives you a value of about 1 cent each. For me personally, I find that booking one-way trips with Virgin Atlantic gives you more options and a little bit more value than just your standard round-trip.

I can book a one way flight on August 16th for 22,500 Flying Club Miles and $200 and a one-way ticket back for 27,500 miles and 137.32 Great British Pounds ($180 USD). This costs me a total of 50,000 Flying Club Miles and $380 which saves me 5,000 miles and $143 when compared to the round trip price. This also gives my points a value of 1.38 cents each.

Virgin Galactic

Flying Club Members will be able to redeem their miles for a trip to space. You will need to have 2,000,000 Flying Club Miles in your account to be eligble. Virgin Galactic typically charges $250,000 miles per seat, so you're looking at a value of 1.25 cent per point which is pretty good! All jokes aside, you will need to earn these 2 million miles on Virgin Atlantic Flights only. Miles earned outside of flying Virgin Atlantic will not be redeemable for Virgin Galactic flights.
