Hi,

Just noticed a press announcement that Virgin will be flying from EDI to MCO commencing April 2022.

I have been trying to do a dummy booking for June-July 2022 but cannot find a direct flight.

Any help of further info would be appreciated.

Thanks
Iain

Here are the days they should be flying:
VS225 EDI-MCO
Wednesdays and Saturdays
D1120 A1615
9h55m
A330-200

VS226 MCO-EDI
Tuesdays and Fridays
D1815 A0725
8h10m
A330-200

The chances are it’s just a blip on the site or that they are either changing the flight time or the aircraft.
If you try again in a day or 2 you should be able to find flights.

Thanks,
Should make booking the hotels based on flight days easier.

Virgin will be using their own aircraft, though what type will always be subject to change.

I would expect the times of the outbound flights to change a bit so you may want to take that into consideration when considering transport to and from the airports at both ends.

Thanks again.

Just found the dates I was looking for. Unfortunately two adults UC coming in at £9.5K and no points available, will try changingm6 dates.

Iain, like you, I’ve been looking at dates and prices but looks like no miles seats loaded at all and only full fare upper fares loaded at the moment.

The game is to grab them as soon as they are loaded. When that will be is anyone’s guess :-D

Thanks for all the replies.

Just covering all my options. Normally we would fly out of Glasgow but I cannot find any flights to MCO from GLA. Has the GLA route been replaced with EDI?

David,

Just a point of note. I have just been able to book G class fares for my chosen dates next summer ( EDI to MCO outbound and return).
Hope you have the same luck.
