I’m writing this post live from the Virgin Atlantic Newark Clubhouse as I’m about to board flight VS 18 (DL 4381) to London Heathrow. I was able to book my business class low level award thanks to the new Delta – Virgin-Atlantic partnership. I’ll have a full trip report for both the Newark Clubhouse and the A340 Upper Class flight later in the week. In the meantime, see this previous post for details on finding and booking the award.

One benefit of a 745am flight from Newark…total travel time from Manhattan – 21 minutes!

PS – a big chunk of Upper Class is taken up by press headed to London to cover the Royal birth…

I am considering flying Upper Class to BOM via LHR later this year, and so am very much looking forward to your trip report.

Safe travels.

Hope you are in need of a haircut! Free haircut at the Bumble and Bumble salon flying out of LHR (or spa treatment, your choice).

Sadly, DL is blocking the vast majority of VS Upper Class awards.
