New UR partner: Virgin Atlantic

The blogosphere has been abuzz about the new Chase Ultimate Rewards partner announced earlier Monday: Virgin Atlantic

The announcement came in my mailbox:

I'm always in favor of adding new partners, especially so since I value Chase Ultimate Rewards points as some of the most valuable and flexible out there.  You can easily transfer 1:1 between all of the airline Alliances, and even top-tier hotels like Hyatt.  Being able to access United for transfers really helps to top off accounts for that special trip you might be planning.

Virgin Atlantic doesn't have many good direct redemption options, but you can transfer miles at a 1:2 ratio with Hilton (minimum of 10,000 to start).  If they would knock down their fuel surcharges, they might be a decent option to get you to London.
