By now you’ve no doubt seen a fair amount in the media about the class action lawsuit brought against British Airways and Virgin Atlantic for price-fixing.

In a nutshell: If you booked a longhaul flight on either of those airlines between 11 August 2004 and 23 March 2006 you may be entitled to some compensation.  The purchase must have been made in the USA or UK and have included a longhaul fuel surcharge that was not refunded.  Apparently qualifying flights are all Virgin Atlantic routes and most BA flights between the UK and non-EU destinations.

Full information can be read at the official passenger settlement website operated by the settlement administrator.

A full list of FAQ’s is also available on that site.
