What's the Deal: Stretch Your Legs and Save $$$
Tired of sitting in the small seats? If you're willing to pay up to have a little room, but you're not willing to pay a fortune, take a look at Virgin Atlantic's sale on premium economy seats.
I flew this class of service on Virgin several times last year, and I can definitely give it a thumbs up. On the Boeing 747, instead of the three seats across along the window, there are two seats in premium economy, so you get lots of space between you and your neighbor, and there's also seven inches of extra legroom. Plus you get free mimosas even before the plane takes off (I'm a cheap date).
Sale is good from Dulles to London for travel April 24 to May 25. Price: $897 round trip, including taxes. Economy is much cheaper at $568, but you may wind up rubbing elbows with someone you'd rather not touch. Buy no later than April 10. And, if you'd prefer flying British Airways, it is offering a similar sale.
While I've not flown that airline in premium economy, I have flown economy, and think it also offers above-average service.
If you want a peek at this week's best deals, check out the Travel page later this afternoon when the What's the Deal? column is posted.
