7 Best Ways to Redeem Virgin Atlantic Flying Club Miles for First and Business Class in 2018


The best ways to redeem Virgin Atlantic Flying Club Miles are actually on the partner airlines, and not on the Virgin Atlantic flights themselves due to high mileage required and high fuel surcharges. Air China's redemption is another example as it has very high fuel surcharges and therefore it is not included on the list.

From time to time, both American Express and Citi offer transfer bonus from their points program to Virgin Atlantic Flying Club Miles, which really sweeten the points deal. Check Points Promotions section to see if the offer is back.
