Fuel Surcharges Drop

By | Category: Travel rumblings

Back home from the US now to be greeted by the news that BA and Virgin Atlantic have both cut their surcharges. Virgin started it and BA followed,- with identical cuts of £13 on long haul and £10 on short. These reductions apply to economy class passengers.
For those in business class price drops are lower; £6.50 on long sectors and £5 on short. No reductions by either airline for first class passengers.
Funny how both companies took the same view of how to handle the cuts so that there is a differential between economy and the other classes! Funny how the prices were the same and funny that despite the drop in fuel prices, the surcharges don’t reflect those that existed when fuel was last this price.
Yes you’ve guessed it; there still higher!
