The Bank of America Virgin Atlantic Mastercard earns 3x miles on Virgin Atlantic and 1.5x miles everywhere else.
However, the card lacks enough benefits to justify the $90 annual fee.

Virgin Atlantic Card Benefits
Earn Elite Points– You can earn 25 tier points for every $2,500 in purchases, up to 50 tier points per month. The lowest elite level (Silver) requires 400 tier points.
Companion Reward Certificate– You can get a companion reward certificate for a Virgin Atlantic flight if you spend $25,000+ in a calendar year. This allows you to book a flight for a companion for free using miles for the same class of service. However, award flights on Virgin Atlantic incur high taxes and fees, which diminishes the value of this benefit especially for economy class awards.
No Foreign Transaction Fees– You can use your Virgin Atlantic credit card anywhere in the world without having to pay foreign transaction fees, which are typically 3%.
