What better place to spend a romantic weekend away than New York? Especially over Valentine’s Day – it could be the perfect time to finally put a ring on it…

Virgin Atlantic is operating its brand new A350 aircraft on the route up to four times per day – another reason why this is a great deal. TPG UK recently reviewed all three classes of the aircraft and our experience in the new economy was a pretty good one!

The deal runs from January 2020 right through to May, so why not take advantage of Virgin Atlantic‘s fares starting at £263 – the lowest we’ve seen in economy with a full service carrier for a while. Remember, these are Virgin’s lowest “Economy Light” fares which means checked luggage isn’t included. If you really need a bag, you can upgrade to “Economy Classic” for an extra £90 which entitles you to free seat selection and a checked bag.

To book, head to Google Flights and set the departure city as Heathrow (LHR) and the arrival airport as New York (JFK). Next, set the airline to Virgin and scroll through the calendar to find the cheapest dates to fly, which are highlighted in green. Once you’ve got the flights you want, head to the Virgin Atlantic website to make sure you earn your Flying Club miles and are ATOL protected.
