BA parent co IAG have £9bn in cash so should be able to weather the storm (virgin have only £83m!), of course the longer this goes on...

My real concern is if BA are the only big carriers to survive, imagine how high the prices will be?!

We’ve got two sets of flights booked with Virgin.

Silly question but... are virgin Atlantic closely linked to virgin holiday? I know va is the flight and vh is the package but what will it mean if va are asking for a bailout?

Yep, it's essentially owned by Virgin Atlantic (technically a holding company owned by Virgin & Delta control both airline & virgin hols). Ironically Virgin Hols has been their success story in terms of profits recently.
