An update on my story earlier this week on No Fuel Surcharges on British Airways Awards with US Airways Miles: as expected, a memo went out today to Dividend Miles agents today instructing them to include fuel surcharges on British Airways award flights.
There is mixed reports that the US Airways’ system is auto-pricing the fuel surcharge in, but whatever the case, if you are considering a British Airways award redemption you should try to book it immediately. If your reservation goes to the rates desk to manually price, there is a chance that the fuel surcharge will not be included. We’re talking big money savings here–$800+ for round-trip travel.
We knew this news was bound to occur and I trust that many of you were able to take advantage of no fuel surcharge on BA flights over the last few weeks.
