I’ve been keeping an eye on Seat Spy for Feb 2022 reward seats for a while now.
Having checked nearly every day, there has always been a peppering of seats throughout the rest of 2021 and a few going into January
When I checked last night, ALL remaining 2021 reward seats had disappeared. Seems odd that there isn’t a single reward seat listed in any class for the rest of this year?

Seems there are only Economy seats showing for MAN-BGI early next year, im guessing as some seats are showing this cannot be an IT issue.

Having never looked to book reward seats before is this normal, or related to VA just wanting to take the cash payments instead? I was hoping to get a PE seat for anytime between Jan to Apr.

I had a quick look at MAN-BGI and to be honest again the flights look pretty busy with Upper Class selling in J or C class and Premium in W for quite a few dates. Bare in mind, before Lockdown 3 happened there was lots of bookings for MANBGI that had been made for the start of this year, so again, its theoretically possible, that as its only a couple of days a week route that they are already loading really well on it, and that reward availability was snapped up by those who were displaced?

ColOrd, I think you could be right. With lots of flights being re-scheduled from the various lockdowns I am sure that most flights are looking healthy in terms of numbers and reward flights have already been snapped up.

There’s a lot of chatter about Barbados potentially being “green” when the list is published - probably on Friday - so I would expect significant demand for BGI.

Something not right! Online seat diary no longer available and there has been no Upper availability for weeks/months on LHR/BGI. No sensible response from Virgin except try checking everyday!!! Good for loyal customers.

Yeah Virgin CS told me to just keep checking as well.

Does anyone know the difference is between the companion voucher provided by the VA credit card, and paying for a companion using points?

Is it right that the companion voucher does not require any reward availability and when paying for a companion using points there does need to be reward availability?

To take a companion to the Caribbean for 17400 points round trip in standard season (obv taxes are still due) sounds pretty good.

I am hoping for flights to Florida for April 2022. We booked 2 out on 1.4.22 to MIA. On Saturday I received a text from Seat Spy to let me know there were flights available to MCO. I contacted Virgin and the agent could not find the flights despite the fact that I had the availability onscreen in front of me. The agent, being unable to book the MCO flights suggested as I could see them that I book them and she would arrange a refund of the MIA flights. I went through the booking and when trying to pay the site showed the flights as not available. Really frustrating!

The issue lay with Virgin not Seat Spy. The seats were shown as available but could not be booked. What an unfortunate waste of 2 hours waiting for the call to be answered by VS. I'll keep trying!
