    Netflights is fine, owned by the Emirates Group so they are not one of the many third party agents that shouldn't be touched with a bargepole

    I also found Netflights to be cheaper than booking direct on the VS site. As Alan points out they have strong parents! Their sister company is Gold Medal which lots of travel agents use to access consolidator fares.

    I have since booked a couple of flights through Netflights and not experienced any problems. They do tend to send a fair few follow up emails prompting you to add on hotels, car rental etc. but I probably forgot to opt out of the marketing.

    I was looking at them again last night for an upcoming BA long haul and they were 65 cheaper than the same flights on BA.com

    I have also found and booked on VS flights to Orlando via the delta.com site as being cheaper than VS. Even when you are on VS metal. No idea why this is the case. Might be worth you looking at that although Netflights may still be a better option.

    My experiences with Netflights have been straight forward from both sides. I did not try to amend dates after booking, try for a refund on a non-refundable ticket and also was able to spell my name correctly, just some of the pit falls others seem to face and later complain about when changes are not made.

    Good luck with the travel plans..

    Thanks guys

    I had already checked Delta, they are the same price as Virgin.

    Can i still choose seats on the Virgin site if i book with netflights, and I assume I would still get the miles

    My experiences has been that once booked Netflights send you confirmation and this includes the airline locator. Once you have that I was able to go to MMB.

    In both VS cases I was able to select seats via MMB but I had booked PE where seat assignments are free.

    Miles and tier points given on both Netflights VS bookings.
