Virgin Atlantic Silver status from Platinum American Express card

by on Fri December 16, 2011 • No Comment

Virgin AtlanticJust received a card in the mail offering Virgin Atlantic Flying Club Silver status for being a holder of the The Platinum Card® from American Express. Flying Club Silver status is basic entry level elite status with Virgin Atlantic. It’s nothing extraordinary, but worth having if you plan to fly them on occasion in the next year.

Here are some of the benefits:

  • Use Premium Economy check-in lines
  • Priority baggage handling
  • 50% bonus on flight miles
  • Head start of 10 elite points toward earning Gold status from scratch
  • 30% off some stays at Morgans Hotel properties

So what are the catches…

  • You must open a brand new Flying Club account at this site by January 31, 2012:
  • You must fly a paid Virgin Atlantic flight by October 31, 2012
  • Fare classes G, P, T, and E are excluded
  • You need to hold The Platinum Card® from American Express
  • The status is valid for the standard elite year; so the sooner you fly the qualifying flight, the longer you’ll be able to use the status

Again, existing Flying Club accounts aren’t eligible, you’ll need to open a new one at the site
