Continental No Longer Redemption or Accrual Partner with Virgin Atlantic

This is a bummer: Effective February 13, Continental will no longer partner with Virgin Atlantic for redemption or miles earning. VA was a great option to Heathrow and, clearly, their Upper Class product was a pretty solid option on that route. I’ve seen plenty of times when Continental had no award availability while Virgin had seats in Upper Class wide open. Not a huge deal, but combined with the loss of Emirates a year or so ago, Continental has lost a couple of redemption partners that had pretty good availability to Europe and beyond.
