Hi Guys,

We've just booked our holiday for next year from Virgin Holidays. We're going to NY for 3 days, then Boston for 3...and then on 13th August we're flying BOS-MCO. I've just had a look at the invoice and it doesnt say any times or airline details for flights, only the price of £670 ($1250 ish - ouch!).

Does anyone have any ideas what airline/flight number this might be?

Cheers

Henry

Without times it could be just about any airline, it doesn't even have to be non-stop or direct. What I do know is that $1250 for BOS-MCO in August, is way too much. Normal prices are usually around $150-$200 R/T.

DL and B6 both fly BOS-MCO non-stop, and I regularly have seen prices as low as $70. Both B6 and Song cap their fares at $300 one-way, so the max price for any r/t can be only $600 (+taxes, but it would only be $100 max).

So what other airlines does Virgin Holiday's book for these vacation packages? I imagine that it wouldn't be AA. So that leaves Song and B6 on this route for non-stops (not including US sat only service).


Never argue with an idiot. They drag you to their level and beat you with experience.

i would think that he meant the whole ticket cost $1,250 for london-nyc-orlando, right? $1,250 for boston-orlando would be outrageous.

To be honest I'm not sure, I dont think I'll bother Dad with all that...

Im hoping its Jetblue, something new and I've heard good things of them. On the other hand DL (presumably Song) use 752s - gotta love them!

Guys,

Just wondering....might take DL and connect in ATL. Theres about 45mins between flights (both are 763s) - is that cutting it a bit fine?

As long as the flights are booked as part of the same itinerary, DL should guarantee the connection.

Hi,

Actually the chances are it will be AA as VS holidays have an extensive agreement with AA to connect and feed their passengers and although this is more relevant for feed to and from MIA to the caribbean and mexico there are other sectors utilised for this purpose.
If not my second bet would be DL(song or otherwise).

Goodl luck.

VS has had an extensive relationship with CO. So chances are it will be CO going BOS-EWR-MCO.

Virgin Holidays operates as its own profit center (separate from Virgin Atlantic) and will contract for seats on any carrier that has what it needs. This would be if Virgin Atlantic does not fly the route ie: BOS-MCO and possibly even if it did fly the route.

An example of this would be MLT & World Vacations(totally owned by NWA), which often use other carriers and charters which are not on Northwest or its partners.

I recently did LGW-ATL-MCO routing with only 45 minutes to connect in ATL, well we made it to the next plane but it was half empty because people were stuck in Immigration who not only spent 25 minutes with some Japanese tourists each with interpreters but also just decided to go really really slow! But I would say your best bet is still going through ATL as it is quite an efficient airport and theres always flights down to MCO every other minute.

Where are you staying in Orlando ??



I hope in life i can work to live, not live to work
