Settlement In BA-VA Price-Fixing Class Action

You’re entitled to a small refund if you bought tickets for a long haul flight on British Airways or Virgin Atlantic between August 11, 2004 and March 23, 2006. The amount is $7-$34 per flight taken. This is the settlement in a class action lawsuit contending the two airlines colluded to fix the price of fuel surcharges. More info at airpassengerrefund.com. [via RickSeaney]

    Where did you dig up that Berryman cartoon at? Any kind of work portraying TR is fantastic to say the least of the man.

    I’m still waiting for my diamond money.

    And my over-seas credit card fee money.

    This would be a third class action I am eligible for this is a direct result of my engagement/marriage/honeymoon.

    Wonder if I’ll ever see any of it.

    Wow, poorly edited sentence due to reckless use of cut/paste!

    That should read:

    This would be a third class action I am eligible for as a direct result of my engagement/marriage/honeymoon.

    Wow – you might be able to put that money toward the expense of flying with a carry-on bag…

    Hey, this actually applies to me! I had to check my journal archives to find out when I bought my September 2004 tickets to London, but I ordered them on August 16. $7 refund, here I come!

    Without clicking to see the terms, I’d like to posit a guess:

    1) $50 Million to some lawyers
    2) Neither airline admits wrong-doing
    3) Affected customers fill out 5 pages of paperwork, get 1 can of soda and a bag of peanuts.
