WOW! BA and Virgin fuel surcharge refund!

Well I never believed it would happen, but yesterday the postman delivered two cheques for the excess air fuel surcharge levied by BA and Virgin.

I filed my claim online, oh must be a year ago...and was very surprised to actually get anything. For two flights, one on BA to Dubai and one on virgin to NY, I got cheques totalling about £38.

OK not a huge sum, but better in my pocket than Sir Beardy's or Martin B's pocket.....

A happy Jules

Lucky you. Flew to Florida on Virgin and got £4 for two of us. Why is there such a difference ?

Claims may be submitted until close of business on 31 December 2012. I sent in my claim later than a number of other people, and have opted to have a deposit made to my chequing account; will be happy to get any ££ / $$ when they arrive.
