    Hi Lucky,

    Interesting note on BA fuel surcharges. This summer we have three F tickets from LHR to IAD and since we decided to spend time in Paris I did an itinerary change so it is CDG > LHR to IAD (same flight and didn't pull and then reinstate miles) we were refunded $25 each even after the $150 per ticket change fee. So fuel charges are about $175 less per person than they were 6 months ago. I'm sure you already knew this but it could make for an interesting post.

    @ jake -- Thanks for the heads up! Suspect this may have more to do with the UK Air Passenger Duty rather than fuel surcharges, though:
