We won't be bringing back support for Virgin Atlantic in the near future
Reward Flight Finder stopped working with Virgin Atlantic at the end of August due to some changes on Virgin's side. (Our link with British Airways has continued to work as normal.)
Since then, we've been working with the team at Virgin Atlantic to restore this functionality.
Unfortunately, we haven't been able to find a solution with them, so we will not be able to bring Virgin back to the site in the near future.
Apologies for the disappointment, and thank you so much for using Reward Flight Finder.
We're still working on bringing back Virgin Atlantic
We're still working to get our link to Virgin Atlantic working again, so we can update our availability and send out alerts when seats become available.
The situation is looking positive, and we hope to get back up and running soon. In the mean time, we've removed Virgin from our website to avoid any confusion.
If you're an Elite member, we'll give you a full refund for the time that the service is not fully working. We're holding off on doing this for now, as we want to do one big batch of refunds, rather than lots of small batches.
Thank you for your patience - we now how frustrating this period is while the site isn't working.
If you have any questions, just drop us an email at email@example.com.

Reward Flight Finder no longer supports Virgin Atlantic
We posted about a week ago to say that we'd lost access to Virgin Atlantic availability data.
Despite our best efforts, we've been unable to get our link with Virgin Atlantic working again. As a result, as of today, we're officially deactivating this part of the site.
Our British Airways connection is not affected and continues to work as usual.
If you're an Elite member, we'll send you a full refund for your last month's membership, which should land in your account in the next few days.
If you want to cancel your Elite membership as a result of this change, you can do it in one click on our website.
We'll post if we get access to Virgin Atlantic data again in the future. If you haven't already, you could try contacting Virgin to tell them how much you value Reward Flight Finder - you can email them here (choose the "Flying Club" option, and then "General enquiry").
We're really sorry for the inconvenience, and we hope to be able to bring Virgin Atlantic back soon. If you have any questions, just drop us an email at email@example.com.
Edit: We've decided to delay refunds, as things are looking a bit more positive. We will provide refunds for the time the service isn't working, but we want to do one big batch of refunds, rather than lots of small batches.
We're currently unable to access Virgin Atlantic availability data
We launched support for Virgin Atlantic back in February, changing the game for Flying Club members 🎉.
Due to some changes on their side in the last few days, we're currently unable to access their data. That means that we can't update our Virgin Atlantic availability or send you alerts when seats become available.
We're working on a solution to this. If you want to help move things forward, you could try contacting Virgin to tell them how much you value Reward Flight Finder - you can email them here (choose the "Flying Club" option, and then "General enquiry").
If you're an Elite member using Virgin Atlantic alerts, then we'll be in touch with you by email very shortly.
We're really sorry for the inconvenience - we know how frustrating it is for this to stop working. We hope to be back up and running soon. If you have any questions, please just drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We now display Avios prices for British Airways flights up to the end of 2020
We now know all of the peak and off-peak dates, so we can show Avios prices for British Airways flights up until 31st December 2020. Hooray 🎉
We now display Avios prices for flights up to 15th June 2020
Showing Avios prices for 2020 is proving a little painful as British Airways haven't yet released the whole calendar for the year, which they usually do.
That means we only know whether a date is peak or off-peak 355 days ahead.
We now show prices for search results up until 15th June 2020. We won't add each day as it's released (sorry - it's too time-consuming!) but we'll keep this up to date periodically.
You can now search for flights today with the "I don't know where I want to go" search tool
With the "I don't know where I want to go" search tool (exclusive to Elite members!), you can now search for flights leaving today - perfect for last minute trips! 🏝 This works for both British Airways and Virgin Atlantic.
Thanks to Ben for the suggestion 💓
