Baggage Allowance UK to USA

We are going as a couple and want to bring 2 suitcases back each. I usually fly Virgin due to having lots of airmile with them. But I am concerned about baggage allowance going to and from Orlando, they only seem to allow 1. we don't mind taking 1 each out there but need to bring 2 back. We are travelling standard ecconomy and only got the basic memberships.

Is there another airline that allows you to do this without paying for the second suitcase?

With BA you would be allowed two suitcases each if you are flying WT + but that is an added expense itself. Their hand luggage is quite generous though if that helps?

You would be best paying for the additional baggage as all the airlines I can think of for transatlantic flights only allow one suitcase unless you pay for another.

you can 'buy' extra baggage from virgin through manage my booking. it appears to cost £32 per bag [but don't quote me, check for yourself]. more expensive if you leave it until you get to the airport.

Most carriers are consistent on fees which in economy is first bag free, second bag US$100 unless you have mileage status.
