No Mas Coach reports that there is a business class roundtrip on Virgin Atlantic (Delta codeshares) that seems bookable at Priceline.com from $1151 roundtrip.
I’m headed out the door and haven’t had time to test this extensively, nonetheless I wanted to bring this to folks attention so they could play with it.
It’s a cheap Delta fare that appears to book into ‘G’ class which is Virgin Atlantic’s upgrade class. So both cheap inventory on the flights and upgrade space needs to be available for the fare to be bookable.
- Travel permitted October 30 through December 13 or December 24 through April 6
- Nonrefundable with a $300 change fee
- Saturday night stay required
ITA Software shows this as ‘first class’ rather than business class.
This is a $300 base fare in each direction.
Just in case the airline decides they want to renege on such a deep discount offer, a case of seller’s remorse, I’d awhile after buying tickets before making additional non-refundable travel plans around the fare. (In theory an airline refusing to honor a sale would have to reimburse any out of pocket costs you incurred but there’s not much history with enforcement of that particular DOT statement so I’d still not test it.)
