You don't want to exceed your credit limit at all - EVER. You usually get hit with large fees for that. I would also caution against overpaying your card as bringing it into a positive balance is generally against the T&Cs for most cards. There isn't anything against making a purchase on your card, making a payment to bring the balance down to zero, and then doing this again multiple times within a month however.
As has been mentioned, you get section 75 protection as long as part of the purchase is over £100 per item has been paid in part for on credit. See here: https://www.moneysavingexpert.com/shopping/section75-protect-your-purchases/. It can actually be as low as £0.01 if you want to get technical, but there just needs to be a clear debtor-creditor-supplier link (ie. don't use a third party such as PayPal to make your purchase). As has been mentioned, you'll likely find it hard to use multiple payment cards over websites but calling the airline direct may help. Good luck!
