News and notes from around the interweb:
- British Airways raised fuel surcharges on premium cabin transatlantic trips. US-originating roundtrips in first or business are now up to $1600. Wow. As always booking two one ways is less expensive, because the fuel surcharge London to U.S. is $438.20 – making a roundtrip of two one ways $1238.20. (HT: Award Wallet)
- Airport passengers with flights cancelled told to return duty-free purchases
Prospective holidaymakers were forced to leave a British airport empty handed after being told to return their duty-free purchases following flight cancellations. For weeks airports and airlines across the country have been plagued with issues around security and check-in delays, passengers queuing outside the departures building and hundreds of flights cancelled or delayed.
But one unknown consequence for these disappointed passengers who are told to return home when their flights are cancelled is that they can’t take any duty-free purchases with them, and are told to return any items they’ve bought before leaving the airport.
