Reply To: BA fuel costs down

Back to Forum



BA introduced a fuel surcharge in 2004, then in about 2013 (IIRC) was the defendant to a lawsuit in the USA, following which the name was changed to ‘carrier imposed charges.’

The company still reserves the right to charge a fuel supplement, but you have to check your e-ticket receipt to see the breakdown of charges to reveal what they have charged you for.

On my last BA ticket receipt, I was charged 116€ ‘Carrier Imposed Charge’, but no fuel surcharge.

So, as I wrote, if there is no fuel surcharge, you can’t get a refund when the oil price comes down – Krug would have understood this point 😉
