Always gone with Virgin, but now youve seriously got me considering BA.

Virgin Atlantic don't currently have flights available for 2nd August. Is that a Virgin Holidays price? Always find them more expensive.

Its not flight price but a flydrive. Return flight is 2nd August - Im not going to book - we flew with Virgin last year and for a family of 4 it was the bulk of our holiday cost. It cost just over 4000 for us and the whole cost of holiday including accommodation, tickets and food was just over 8000 -

I really do not want to spend as much this 2nd time so really looking for as many savings as possible.

I have just got off phone with mum also who flys to states twice a year - she was writing both BA and Thomas Cook staying she would only fly dream liners for future flights - either with Virgin or Norwegian.

So next question - anyone fly with Norwegian? If so - is it worth the saving?

We have flown with both BA and Virgin and would go with whoever was cheapest. Particularly if its a big saving its a no brainer.
We are going with a BA flydrive next year. Flights were absolutely fine and crew were lovely.
Id rather have the extra money the other end to spend 😀

BA for that price, no questions asked. As for the difference in the flydrive and booking the flights/car separately, I could be mistaken but I think it's due to you having the option to pay up the flydrive? Put down a deposit to start and pay up whereas the separate option has to be paid immediately

Why on earth is this even a question or a choice?

I do not understand the need to fly a Dreamliner. I fly the Atlantic several times a year and haven't notice the Dreamliner is that much better in fact there were things that were not so good.
