I'm toying with the idea of going to England in mid June (after the Jubilee is over so hopefully there won't be so many crowds!). I have about 90K points with Virgin Atlantic, and 51K points with Chase credit card that can be transferred to VA points. It's been my dream to fly first class for the past several years. I figured after not being able to go since summer 2019, I would have had enough points to fly first class going from NY to London and then Economy on the way back, or Economy Delight on the way back. However, my quick calculations say nope, I still do not have enough points.
So I am thinking about Premium Economy on the way over.
Wondering about a couple of things: Are the prices for my first choice (dream) so high because I've waited too long to book? Has anyone done the overnight flight with Premium Economy, and if so, were you actually able to get any sleep?
I just read a news story that airline prices are skyrocketing. I wonder if waiting until 2023 is a better idea...Been feeling very sad and mixed up about traveling this summer. Thanks for listening!
