BA long-haul fuel surcharge to rise
British Airways is to increase its fuel surcharge on long-haul flights by £10.
From Thursday, passengers will pay a surcharge of between £63 and £108 depending on which cabin they are in and how long their flight is.
BA said the rise "reflects the substantial recent increase in the price of oil".
For economy class passengers on long-haul flights of less than nine hours - which would include New York - the increase takes the surcharge to £63.
Travellers in economy on flights of more than nine hours will have to pay £76 from Thursday.
For those in World Traveller Plus - a grade up from economy - the new surcharge total will be £73 for long-haul flights under nine hours and £94.50 for those over nine hours.
First class and Club World (business class) will pay £88 for long-haul flights of less than nine hours and £108 for those exceeding nine hours.
BA said there would be no surcharge increases on its short-haul flights.
The rise comes only a few weeks after the rise in the UK airport departure Air Passenger Duty tax.
