We have finally bitten the bullet and booked our flights for next August. We have booked Virgin Atlantic flights through Continental and paid £2431 for 3 adults and 1 child. The exact same flights booking direct with VA would have cost some £500 more. Does anybody know why this is the case? I would have thought that VA flights would be cheaper if you booked direct with VA. Incidentally, we priced up a fly/drive with VH on the same dates and that came to over £4100.
