 proposed settlement has been reached as the result of a class action case in the U.S. relating to surcharges on airline tickets. The case claims that British Airways PLC ("BA") and Virgin Atlantic Airways Ltd. ("Virgin") unlawfully conspired to fix prices for the "fuel surcharge" that was added to base ticket prices. BA and Virgin have both admitted to participating in the conspiracy.

Under the proposed settlement, BA and Virgin will provide passengers with partial refunds on tickets purchased in the U.K. for transatlantic and other long haul flights (over 7 hours). Although the settlement has been agreed upon by the parties, it must be approved by the Court to take effect.
Who Does This Affect?
Consumers and businesses may be entitled to a fuel surcharge refund of up to £20 per passenger per return flight if they bought a ticket in the U.K.:
  • On BA or Virgin
  • Between 11 August 2004 and 23 March 2006
  • For transatlantic and other long haul flights (over 7 hours) from the U.K.
This includes all purchases by individuals or companies, whether direct from the airline, through a travel agent, as part of a package holiday or from a website.

(For flights from the U.S., visit

How Much Is The Settlement?
BA and Virgin have made available a fund of more than £73.5 million for these refunds in the U.K. There will be no deduction from this fund for lawyers' fees. There is no cost to you to claim your refund.

When Will Refunds Be Made?
The U.S. Court must first complete certain processes and then those eligible individuals and businesses that have submitted claim forms will be sent refund cheques.

How To Register
Submit your contact information on this website. Then you will receive additional information via post or email, including a written claim form or a link to an online claim form.
If you are registering on behalf of a business who has purchased a ticket (or tickets) for employees, but also wish to register your personal contact information in respect of an individual purchase then you must submit both individual and business contact information using the two different registration pages.
