Award Chart

Virgin Atlantic has the redemption rates available here. Fuel surcharges on Virgin Atlantic are high. One of the best 'values' is New York to London (one-way) in economy for 17,500 miles and $231.50.

Airline partners with no or low fuel surcharges include Delta and Singapore Airlines. Virgin charges only 40,000 miles for the transatlantic flight in economy on Delta with no fuel surcharges. That's great value.

Another good value is the redemption on Cyprus Airways between Larnaca and Tel Aviv.

What we like about this card

Most of us have no/few cards with Bank of America. I'm always looking for a new card for my next round of applications. With the right strategy you can avoid the high fuel surcharges.
