How Can I Get Virgin Miles On LON-TLV?

Sat Apr 21, 2007 6:18 am

All,

Been pondering this for quite a while.

I need to go to TLV in the summer from London, and so far I can't think of any possible way of using the route to earn Virgin Flying Club miles, and/or tier points.

Can anyone shed any light for me?

TIA,

Matt

Option 1: Wait until Virgin starts flights on that route.

Option 2: Continental LGW-EWR-TLV.

Those are the "best" options I can think of.

Option 3: Rent a car with Avis, Dollar or Hertz; Virgin mileage car rental partners, and drive to TLV or as far as you can.
Unfortunately, you will not get miles for any ferries you'll have to take on the way  Smile

I would guess that your best bet would be to book through BMI and do a combination flight with them. You'll at least earn miles on the sector flown by BMI. You could do a BMI/El AL or BMI/LH combination.
If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

2 doesn't sound so bad!

I'm struggling with this online - will I have to call reservations [eeks!] to get this booked?

OK I think I'm giving up on this!!!

I will just fly BA and use that card instead.

They fly 2x daily; one on a 767 and one on a 777. Ive not flown either on BA, is it worth me configuring my trip to do one each way?
