BA likely to reduce fuel surcharge

According to press reports British Airways will cut its fuel surcharge on flights lasting under nine hours following a fall in the price of oil.
The fuel surcharge will fall from £35 to £30 on flights to destinations such as New York, Dubai and Barbados and journeys lasting more than nine hours will continue to be charged at the £35 rate. The £8 fee for short-haul routes will remain unchanged.

The price of crude oil has dropped significantly since surcharges were increased last year, and a number of airlines including Virgin Atlantic and Lufthansa have already cut their surcharges.
